if you only want i2s (which is just a 'cleanly separated clock and data' - why not just a gamma1 lite? the pcm chip it uses separates the 2 just fine and is the heat of many of the usb 'audio output' devices, both digital and analog (and even i2s if you want all those extra wires, lol)
I currently try to implement following setup for my laptop:
PC ->USB receiver capable of 24/192 ->I2S->DAC capable of 24/192 -> balanced buffer -> B22 balanced
I don't want over sampling rate by ASRC up-sample in the DAC. So, with this setup, if I want to, I still can over sampling by using PC plug-in software. Also, I can play source that has high sampling rate natively (96 or 192)
Again, can any one please check if I2S can be pulled form Musiland ?
