Default Trying to understand how my DAC works. Output stage on a Schiit BiFrost

Hey guys I'm currently reading

Today I was looking at my Schiit Bifrost.

Is this arrow I'm pointing to the power regulator on the board?

I haven't been able to find any pictures without the USB card or the other card. But is the 2nd card with the DAC chip also the board with the output stage?

Thanks for the help!

yes, the daughterboard on the left of your bottom pic contains the dac and its output buffer (not an IV stage, its a voltage output dac)

unless the clock is under the board, I have no idea why the i2s lines are so long and the clock so remote
