Thanks for the update Steve!
Any plans on making a "light mod" of the hiface? I am pretty sure your next pace car will probably be one the best sources in existence today (be it CD transports or usb to spdif converters) but it will be probably a little bit on the expensive side (at $1000+) and maybe even overkill for many people with mid-level dacs. A hiface with a good power supply and usb galvanic isolation could be an intermediary solution between the stock version and your future pace car. Well this is just a tought ...

My reference dac is limited to 96K so I never tried 192 material. However, last week I tried the audio-gd FUN with the CS8416 module (which is supposed to have 24/192 input capability) and I had dropouts. But since I was upsampling 24/96 -> 24/192, I didn't know if the origin of the dropouts was from the hiface, the digital input receiver or the upsampling (computer).
Did anyone try their hiface successfully at 24/192 ?
