SOtM dx-USB HD asynchronous USB to S/PDIF converter
SOtM makes the tX-USB card used in the Auraliti and CAPS/CAPS v2.0. Given their reputation, I'm looking forward to hearing more about this converter.
Edit: Apparently, there's also an "mBPS-d2s" battery power supply, to be paired with the dx-USB HD. I'm not a fan of these names, though.

Looks like Hi-Fi World reviewed the SOtM dx-USB HD: http://www.hi-fiworld.co.uk/index.php/internet-audio/445-usb-convertors.html?start=4
Decided to take the plunge. I was informed the battery box was backordered, so that may take a few weeks to get here. I'll make some brief notes when both have arrived.
I've had the dx-USB HD and mBPS-d2s for a few months now, but I haven't had much listening time. Kind of a shame, as the LL and BHSE showed up just around that time as well, and have been sitting and quietly gathering dust because of all the work I've had to do in the meantime. Haven't had a chance to do an A/B or any such thing.
