Default Which Musiland Dac to buy/Ease of Mods

I want to buy a musiland USB interface and connec tit to a buffalo DAC.
Which one would be the best one to buy and has ability to(not impossible) mod?
Do they all have HDCP driver decode option?

To the best of my knowledge none of the musiland stuff is asynchronous which means significant jitter - I know the buffalo is good at rejecting this, but...

I use a Stello U3 asynchronous to USB interface with my diy dac, it uses XMOS technology and good stable drivers. It is rather expensive, but there are some diy implementations of XMOS technology here on the forum - I would check these out if the Stello is too expensive.

I also have an SMSL dac that uses the Tenor TE-7022L which may be the same device used in the device you are looking at, the GFEC (Tenor parent) drivers for this chip are not very good. (I use this for portable audio media serving from my laptop)

Did you mean HDCD? If so, none of these devices decode it, but they probably won't damage it either. (This would normally be performed in an outboard digital filter if supported) HDCP is a protocol used for digital content protection over HDMI and sometimes DVI..
