What size spacers are needed for mounting the various modules to one another? I cannot find any info about the spacing between the boards when stacked.
All mounting hardware is included in the kits, including stacking spacers (when appropriate).

FWIW: I supply .5" F-F spacers and screws for all modules. When stacking is an option, I also supply .625" M-F spacers.

The S/PDIF transceiver module is required for buffalo III SE?.
that looks about tight. You do not need the S/PDIF transceiver module for the Buffalo. It accepts S/PDIF directly.

You can wire the output of the volume pot to each of the DACs and control then both at the same time, as long as both board share a digital ground.

Brian: But how do you do with the BIII-SE if you want say one I2S/DSD input, and three SPDIF? You have to buy the old MUX?

We will be releasing a digital switch, like the OTTO, but 4:1 instead of 2:1. We will (hopefully) be ordering boards this week.

What connector/cabling is recommended from the S/PDIF UFL connector to the back panel BNC, RCA or XLR input connector? For short interconnect distances is there any reason to use balanced XLR for the S/PDIF or AES/UBU input vs. BNC or RCA?

Sorry if this should be obvious, but pls can you confirm if the input accepts I2S and DSD data streams. Presumably it detects DSD and processes accordingly. This is how I understand the input spec, but could be wrong.

An external switch (Otto) is only for if you want to connect 2 x devices. DSD and I2S from the same device will be processed OK.

Thanks,

I use regular wire if the distance is short (twisted if you can).

If you are using AES/EBU, you should use an XLR for the balanced signal.
