Alright so I've settled on using the WM8741 for a DIY DAC. Now, I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to use as a source, but I know that the audio will be decoded and spit out by the MCU as an I2S stream. Basically, what I'm confused about is the talk of things like FIFOs, isolates, and a bunch of other stuff that I forget. What I want to know is this: how do I get the I2S stream from the source to the WM8741 most reliably? I assume I'm going to need an external clock to combat jitter, do I need a separate one for each sampling rate? Is there anything else that I am missing?
