I've actually shifted gears on this a bit. Mainly, I unwittingly put together a vision that includes making a new streamer/player + FIFO Reclocker. When really, I just need that latter part to try and feed native DSD into Venus II via i2S. And as good as Venus already is on her USB input - I'm not so sure I'm going to improve on it much. And honestly given the investment so far, the research and work - I could have just bought a DF DDC. But I really do want some sweat equity in at least some parts of the setup Either way, I'll be able to at least power the DDC and my HQPlayer NAA with a very good PSU! The beauty of all this is that when I'm not tinkering, I can just go back to my NAA setup with Ghento USB dual-head cable into Venus, and enjoy the best digital sound I've heard. It's honestly remarkable and I keep meaning to do a write-up, but I'm finding it kind of hard to articulate how much I enjoy this setup. It's seriously and sincerely turned me into a classical music buff. It's the transparency Venus affords paired with my new-to-me Dynaudio Confidence C2 speakers that has me even trying to push the envelope further. That says a lot, honestly.
