To use the Pico's USB DAC, right now I'm using ASIO4ALL through foobar. Do I have to set anything else in foobar besides choosing the DAC as the output device?
Here's some info for you.

Amazon Kindle as USB source...?

Might be going the wrong direction with this thought, but can any device with USB work for getting a decent signal to the Pico?

I was thinking specifically about using an Amazon Kindle as source going into the Pico. Am I missing anything? Clearly it wasn't intended for high SQ, but it does hold files, and it does have a USB out...

You'd have to have a device that supports audio playback. It would have to have usb drivers for USB-Audio. And it has to act as a USB host. If all those are true, then you can probably use the kindle with the pico.

Hmm - what would be the best method of finding that out? I know it plays audio (meant for audiobooks) but do not know about the USB drivers or being able to act as a USB host...

(sorry, total lack of tech skills here...)

Looks like Kindle can operate as a USB host...
