Ordered this from China, and with a high current 5VDC Power Supply I had laying in box, sweeter audio quality was easily audible. Separating the CLK/Data signals is definitely the best way to listen to Digital Audio. Temporarily had to remove the S/PDIF (RCA) cable because the I2S PCB has a direct male to male HDMI adapter connecting it to the Sony Universal Player. An Optical cable is connected temporarily until I does some careful RCA 75Ω 90° Plumbing to get around the I2S PCB. The Dual HDMI outputs (Video goes to my Sony STR-DN1080N - “Audio” feeds the I2S PCB). True DSD over PCM Stereo playback is now heavenly.
Works with ANY BluRay Player that has an HDMI Output. For SACD Playback (@ 2.8MHz) player must be SACD compatible which the Sony is. Will also work with the cheaper Sony UBP-X800.
For those who missed the boat on Oppo or the PWT, this is truly a cost effective and solid transport worthy of any Budget Audiophile System.
