Re: No worries

Even large buffers don't isolate you from having to follow the USB clock.

The Squeezebox is the master clock for the playback and it pulls the data on demand at the rate it's local clock is sending it out through the S/PDIF interface.

For most USB interfaces a piece of software int he PC is the master clock and the data is pushed at that rate down to the interface. Whether large buffer or not the USB converter needs to estimate the rate at which it is beeing fed this data and adjust its S/PDIF clock to keep in sync.
