Rubbish jargo then. It is a screened unbalanced wire, nothing to do with balanced what so ever!! Yes I have seen this before and all I would say is urge 'caution' re capacitance of your cable
I concur...

Sorry, what does it mean 'rubbish jargo', something like fried air?

Coming back in topic, well, the signal cable is only a tasker grounded on one plug only (will never call it as semi balanced ).
I am planning to try new software first and a USB/SPDIF coaxial converter after.
After saw the dac magic inside I think nothing to do, except capacitors improvement, unfortunately I am not skilled on SMD.
Have a nice week end
