Gigabyte has a range of 'audiophile-grade' motherboards that contain the so called USB DAC-UP technology. According to their website these kind of motherboards are able to provide clean, noise-free power delivery to a DAC. The technology is supposed to take advantage of an isolated power source that minimizes potential fluctuations. Does anybody have experience with this and knows if this is a step up from a standard computer USB port and how this compares to a separate SotM USB card? Has somebody been able to put a USB DAC-UP motherboard into a fanless Streacom FC5 case? For example the Gigabyt GA-B85N?
