RE: Why would I

The RPi still has USB ports, you can connect the USB converter and use it as outputs rather than the spdif. Just reboot and choose USB output instead of Digi+ Pro.

I'm guessing that if both were RPi's [one spdif out and the other to your USB converter] they would sound different. The Digi+ is pretty good at $50 but I don't know if its on the same level as the Audiophilleo 2 a $500+ converter.

Then add on top of that the uRu is powered from a $400 Linear PS vs. a $11 wallwart....

I'd say power the uRu from a wallwart and use both as USB out to the Audiophilleo would be a fair fight.

But if you think about it, it took nearly $1k worth of peripherals to give the uRu a slight advantage over the RPi.
