Thank you for your answer!
In both pc I use ssd and internal media server, I used the same hdmi cable, the same hdmi input in lx75, the same songs, the same settings for daphiles rt, but the sound is different. I do not understand if daphile does not use audio from the board just encodes pcm, like the same if it sounds different.
I'm now trying to upgrade bios for brix, and I will buy a xfi creative for the test and I will come back with details.
However, I'm curious what pc configuration is required for daphiles to work ok.

X-fi soundcards are generally worse supported in linux. You may want to check support details of your selected card before buying.

I use the following:

Intel DN2800MT

Athlon 200GE on Gigabyte Aorus micro-ATX

Gigabyte J1800 SoC board.

My experience is that the Intel board is the least powerful of the lot, and produces the best sound because of a better implemented USB subsytem with proper power filtering. It shows little to no difference whether using a cheap laptop supply or a well-filtered linear supply.

The other two are DIY system components, and have terrible USB behaviour and need a lot tinkering to get a clean output. I resorted to Pico-PSU type power supplies, backed by 12v enclosed switching supplies followed by a bit of active filtering. This allowed me to get something decent from the other two, but I feel there's still some way to go specially for the most powerful of the three.

All are running the 18.07 RT kernel, the Intel is not capable of resampling, being a very weak Atom from almost a decade ago - and the 200GE can go up to DSD512 no problem, even though I prefer running at native rates.
