Hi Mark,
Dropbox works, or you could post the Hi-res to a photo hosting site like 'Flickr' or '500pix' or similar with free hosting then link here...and attach here the bom, layout, and schematic ...should fit fine..

Simply connect the I2S output from the Kali or Pi.
In fact there is a Pi Hat version of the AK4137 that I think does DSD file input too... (although it does not have the LCD display that the stand alone board has)

I use both the basic XU8 usb to I2S (which is the previous series to the one you linked) and a DIYinHK XMOS XCORE-200 XU216 which is the series after your linked XU208
XMOS 384kHz DXD DSD256 high-quality USB to I2S/DSD/SPDIF PCB - DIYINHK
I have several different devices and O/S' and some, such as X86 PC's ,don't have I2S out. Thus the need for a usb interface.
I recall that Mark uses Windows PC so needs Usb to I2S too.

Thank you Drone,
Very clear.
As I have many DSD 64/128/256 files(for now played with DOP) I will go for xmos.

Again, more pictures of the AVCC board coming together. Some of it is getting harder to see especially around the opamp socket where there are more wires now. I soldered on some leads to go the 47uf AVCC caps on the dac board and slipped wt/gn/yel sleeving over them for now. Big red and black wires are for +-15v. Decided to go ahead and use the 10k MF resistors I have in stock even though they are kind of big. It was either that or SMD and I decided to stick with the program. Thus, Vref dividers/filters are soldered in place. The opamp input filter is soldered in place. Getting pretty close to the end of the AVCC board.

Pictures below.

For tomorrow: No pictures of it yet, but right now working on attaching the AVCC board to the dac board. That may be hardest part of this whole thing, but it was all I could think of to use through hole components and put the AVCC board close to where AVCC voltages are needed. More on that later.
