Can this do dsd tracks or mqa? I use a raspbery pi to stream dsd from my server, and mqa when a friend comes over... lol I don't have tidal. A version of this that would have DSD capabilities and MQA would make my world. Seems like this one just does PCM...?

I don't think the BOSS DAC can do MQA. The DAC is based on the Ti PCM5122 DAC chip, whose datasheet you can download here: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/pcm5122.pdf
I use Moode Audio which does DSD-to-PCM conversion, if you need that. But I don't think the PCM5122 can play DSD files natively. I might be wrong about that, though.

I did some research on this a few months ago: no native dsd.
I ended up going with the Mamboberry HD+ (which does have native DSD) and I'm very satisfied.

Looks like Mamboberry HD+ is only available in Europe, or rather, internationally shipped. I'm in the US :(

So am I; ships from Greece. I found it to be worth the shipping price. (I think it was a $15 adder.)
Not sure where your looking but I bought directly off the Collybia website.

I'm not sure either haha, I'll consider the shipping price, good to know they ship to the US.
Well actually, I know I'm looking for something that isolates itself from the raspberry pi, something that plays DSD (64 and 128 [and maybe MQA if possible]), and something that maybe I can upgrade the power supply for later when I can afford a linear power supply.
