Very informational, I appreciate the detail response.
Just wanted to add a bit on why I’m doing this for background info.
The reason I like to use USB is that it’s the only way I can get to use the DAC with video. I enjoy watching music videos and wanted to use my system to listen, no reason not to
I went out and bought a USB over Ethernet adapter, since I already have cat6 cables running inside the wall. I got this one:
From my initial testing, I find that it’s much better than the 50’ cable. Compared to BridgeII, the BridgeII is a little bit more open, a little bit clearer, sound stage is a little bit larger. Not that going through the USB converter is bad, just different, it has more weight to the sound, a tag veil compared to BridgeII, but I’m pretty happy with it right now, allowing me to listen to my system while watching the music videos.
If I listen to exclusively audio, then I’ll probably still use BridgeII.
