Default DIY DAC without soldering?

Hello,
I would like to "build" my DAC with following features:

- USB async
- spdif in
- balanced outs
- master clock in DAC that drives inputs (no PLL and so on )
- possibly 384 khz (to experiment with oversampling)
- possibly remote
- possibly dsp to do DRC and so on

But I would like to realize it WITHOUT soldering!
I am evaluating minidsp: opendrc misses only usb input, nanosharc hd misses only balanced output.

If I can find an i2s dac that can be attached to nanosharc I suppose I will be ok.
Can you help me?

Thanks,
Mario

Hi Mario,
Just curious. Why don't you want to do these things without soldering? It is much easier to do this when you do solder stuff together.

I am not good at soldering!
If after soldering nothing works, I am not able to test to see what I have done wrong.

Thanks.
Very nice products but I suppose I have to solder them together.
