I was thinking that maybe one could use Ian's Buffalo U.FL. connector adapter PCB (seen here) to interface with the DAC using coaxial U.FL. cables.
Any thoughts?

yeah I thought of this too, the pinouts should match, but if you look at the last page of the fifo thread you can see its easy enough to solder the u.fl headers directly to the PCB. the interface of the 2 molex type pinheaders will not be too flash as far as impedance, it will be better to just solder directly.

for the amanero pinout, I would just solder a strip of copper foil all the way across the line of ground pads (or perhaps scrape back the soldermask to expose the copper), then solder the rear corners of the ground terminals of the u.fl headers to that and the signal terminals to the signal holes. not so important if you are connecting directly to the fifo board, but as i'll be connecting to the OTTO II (modified in a similar fashion) and switching between fifo and dac direct for DSD, its worthwhile.

I installed my board into a BII that was using an exaU2I and....:-)

The clocks on this thing are pretty damn good. Just using USB power, it gamely handles PCM & DSD in OS X using Audirvana. I've thrown a wide variety of sample rates at it (PCM & DSD) and it handled everything well. Just on short listen, I can't hear any difference between this and the exaU2I. Well done mate!

Yes - may turn out to be a real exaU2I-killer if only stereo is needed.

Indeed. I've also used the eXD board in a number of builds. We'll see how it does against that board, but I suspect fairly well.
