    Editing or Deleting an Added Item in Head Gear DB

    Can we have the ability to edit the title of an entry in the Head Gear DB?  It does not currently seem to allow this.  Also, is it possible to allow the deletion of an added item?    I added the PerfectWave PWD, but the title of the entry says "Networking DAC," which is not the product...

    Do there exist converters to go from SPDIF to USB? And if so, does a PC need to part of the mix? Reason for asking: I would like to take the optical out of my Apple Express and run it to a USB-only DAC. Is this possible?
