Certainty of getting the best possible rip and complete control over the chain...and, of course, easier upgradability...

Wyred4sound should be mentioned in a lineup of asynchronous USB DACs. Also, if you already own a S/PDIF or AES/EUB DAC or want to use the DAC in your SSP you can get very good asynchronous USB to S/PDIF - AES/EUB converter and get audiophile SQ. The Hiface EVO converter has been getting a very good rap.

Are you saying that sending from the Request to my ADA SSP via digital cable is not a good option though?

If you want to use the DACs in your ADA (which makes a lot of sense) USB is not an option.

If you want unlimted disc capacity (at $100 per TB) and remote control from the iPhone you can get an Mac Mini use iTunes and use the hiFace USB converter. Total outlay $1000. You are very likely to get better SQ, if it turns out you don't you sell everything with a few hundred bucks loss. Bit of work, but for those pursuing truth in music worth the effort.

There's a number of Bryston BDP-1 videos now on Youtube if anyone is interested. The rear panel, user interface, and media videos are interesting.
