Default What multichannel dac options for computer based crossovers?

What are people using for multichannel dacs when using active computer based crossovers?

I would like to play flac files stored on a hard drive through computer based active crossovers then out via usb to 6 channels of dac, then to my amps, then to my speakers.

The only multichannel dac I have found is the exa 8 channel product that only outputs single ended. I want to use my ncores with balanced inputs....

Any suggestions? The only thing I have found is the 8 channel buffalo 3....

You can get XMOS - USB Streamer - and output many I2S and choose the DACs.
