RE: Those 9 things...

Sure fmak,
Maybe there is a difference, maybe there isn't. I would just like to see if someone can demonstrate objectively what improvement *any* of these USB optimizations will have on a good modern asynchronous USB DAC.

Does it affect XMOS microcontrollers? How about the inexpensive Microchip devices? CMedia?

There are so many "possible" effects but as yet, there is no fact-based objective demonstration at all that this whole "industry" of USB add-ons make a whiff of difference... Much less a reviewer chaining 9 of them together somehow should be used with the product; all the while potentially making the USB transmission *worse* just as much as they could improve something.
