I have 2 of these. Kits arrived very fast and everything worked from first. It works really nice sounds very good and it is cheap. But you need to buy transformar and tube if you want it......
It has no other input only usb. Those optical and coax are digital outputs. But there was a small daughter board available to ,,upgrade,, it to coax input as well. But it is not available any more so I have to make it.......and if you want it I can send you the boards....or bring it to you in September when I am moving to London.....

I got a Muse TDA1543 x4 DAC (no usb input) for $60 - it blows the socks off any commercially made DAC I have heard!

For usb->spdif, I think any converter which takes its power from an external supply (rather than the USB power) would be fine.....

Thanks for the tip. How did you manage to get the tranformer?

I ordered it locally. Just go with specification to some local company. It should be cheap. 30-50W is enough. It shouldn't cost more than 15-25
