Yes, it works just fine in combination with default DIP-switch settings (all OFF) on the Matrix Audio X-SPDIF 3.
In the setup menu of the WANDLA, you need to select Pin 15 for DSD and you’re good to go with native DSD up to DSD256 as well.

I’m not sure what you mean by the MK II. Probably the GoldenSound edition that has recently been announced? Since this is “only” custom software, you might get the standard WANDLA and upgrade later on.

I can recommend getting the HYPSOS though. It makes a distinct difference in terms of better soundstage, more clarity and more body to the sound.
