Hi can I use a USB power unit like Schiit Wyrd to power the UDAC-8 and not connect your included wall-wart power supply?
Thanks

Hi, the U-DAC8 has a round DC connector, it's not powered from the USB port. (Well, the actual USB interface might be, I'm not sure, but the USB port doesn't power the whole DAC.)
I am not miniDSP support.

Like John just said. :-) The UDAC8 needs the external 5V supply. Please check the user manual, lots of good info explained.
