Se il dac usa un TDA1541, devi configurare il ricevitore per un uscita in I2s, tra le altre cose il CS8412 č datato e con prestazioni molto medie.
Trovi su ebay basati sul DIR9001che magari costano una trentyina di eur ma sono di un altro livello.
Buon lavoro.

I note you have a CS8412 on hand as well as the TDA1541 but you might want to consider a better and more current receiver IC such as the Wolfson WM8804, the old CS8412 seemed incapable of rejecting even moderate amounts of jitter in the spdif stream and performs poorly compared to more modern receiver ICs like the Wolfson WM8804 or the TI DIR9001.

I would take gugleilmope's comments about the mediocrity of this receiver seriously - this is my experience too. Another problem with the CS8412 is that it is long discontinued and if you have a problem it will be hard and expensive to source new. (There are lots of counterfeit and some used receiver ICS available, some work, some don't.)

Also limiting yourself to 44k/16 bit resolution now seems like a potentially unfortunate choice if you ever decide you are interested in higher rez pcm formats.

Check out some of the kits by Twisted Pear Audio, if you are looking for something that works, is easy to put together and sounds good.. The Buffalo dac looks interesting (haven't tried it) and I am using their WM8804 based receiver with some PCM1794A...

Also lots of good dac kits (mostly from China) on eBay these days.

Also while I understand Italian well enough, the official language of diyaudio is English by agreement and more importantly you limit the number of useful responses you will get as many knowledgeable posters here know no Italian at all..

Since you have the pcb I would just use it as is. Finding the information for the CS8412 is the issue, and you can get the data sheet here if you do not have it: www.dddac.de/filesCS8411_12.pdf

For I2S format connect M0 to ground, M1 to VDD, and M2 to ground. (see below)

M2 M1 M0 Format

0 0 0 ... Out, L/R, 16-24 Bits

0 0 1 ... In, L/R, 16-24 Bits

0 1 0 ... Out, L/R, I2S Compatible

0 1 1 ... In, L/R, I2S Compatible

1 0 0 ... Out, WSYNC, 16-24 Bits -

1 0 1 ... Out, L/R, 16 Bits LSBJ

1 1 0 ... Out, L/R, 18 Bits LSBJ

1 1 1 ... Out, L/R, MSB Last
