    We have to define our problem before we can come up with a solution. (It's an engineering thing)

    Problem: There is no external soundcard/DAC that has low levels of jitter combined with high voltage multi-channel outputs (more than 2), that does not run on 110V AC in a small package, and has interchangeable parts such as opamps/caps/DAC's for customizing the sound.

    I think that sums it up for everyone listening. Correct?

    Aparently I wasn't all that knowledgeable about usb audio

    If the software that is going to be used can support output to multiple audio devices, you could just use 4-5 stereo dac's on one PCB, with one PSU and a USB hub to only use one USB connection (if bandwidth allows for this, but I guess it should).

    That way your computer will recognize 5-6 devices (dac's +hub) but you can use them the way you want!

    Even using some outputs for different audio output/multi zone (wireless headphones?)...no problem as the computer sees the different channel pairs as different devices!

    Just my 2 cts
