    At your own risk, try using a cheater plug for the computer. Disable Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Roon Ready, etc. if you don't need these services.

    wklie replied to a thread Lumin U2 and X1 questions in Lumin
    With a U2 or U2 Mini you may convert DSD256, DSD128 or DSD64 to PCM 176.4kHz, 88.2kHz or 44.1kHz. So it is ideal with DAC that uses old types of DAC chips or does not support DSD well.

    Sorry, that's not possible with the hardware. The overhang is intentional for aesthetic reasons, but we do understand the difficulty it causes.

    There is a standalone DAC, at a different price point. When you say K-03, from oldest to newest, there are: K-03, K-03X, K-03Xs, K-03XD. If you're buying a new unit, you don't want to get an old model. If you're buying a used unit, be careful...
