It will handle PCM(I2S) and SPDIF output too.

Well, I hope it's an I2S interface first and foremost. I wish the industry would retire S/PDIF.

There is no compromise on the module to support both. Just use the one that suits your application best.

Well, no one ever said anything about it actually, that's why I was hoping Russ would show a picture to us (referred to as "the kids") so we get an idea on how big it is as most of the people with Buffalo IIs have already assembled their boards and will have to rearrange them.

The current plan is to try to make it the same size at the Buffalo module.

How could we combine this board with more traditional inputs like the Mux?
Should an Otto be used to switch between a Mux and the USB input? If so, can we expect the AC2 in the same timeframe to provide an easy switching capability? Or will a new module provide I2S passthrough/multiple SPDIF ports?

Those are two separate concerns. The USB module is simply that. USB in -> SPDIF/PCM out.

The OTTO will work to switch two I2S sources.

You could also use the SPDIF from the USB module into the MUX.

There is something else I am working on too, but it is too early to talk about it.

Cheers!
Russ

Ok, I was thinking about getting something like an Arduino/AC2 to connect a display, set the Mux & Otto to the right settings using fi. a five position switch and control volume with a rotary control and/or IR input. And perhaps even create a 12V trigger for my amp.
That would really finish my DAC

Russ,
Have you considered incorporating an ADuM4160 USB Isolator as a front end?
I've used that ahead of a Musiland USB to SP/DIF into my SABRE and
noticed an improvement in sonics.
