But the DI drivers and firmware updates are on the audio-gd site, or they're sent to you if you ask Kingwa/audio-gd

So, was DI->i2s->nfb-7 significantly better than usb->nfb-7 or DI->spdif->nfb-7 ?

Not much if at all. I think this speaks volumes for both the DI and audio-gd's USB implementation.

It means that a-gd's USB is darn solid already. It's gotten to a point that recent driver and firmware updates has gotten it to a point that an external box is not necessary anymore. Or at least not a 'budget' one.

It also means that the DI is a darn solid piece of kit that can be used with anything that has no or crappy USB as a very viable and good solution. Same applies to the Gustard U12 I got. The two are different flavors of good 'budget' converters and I'd recommend either.

They certainly don't sound worse, so I use them where I can.
