SPDIF out - What performs better, the iDSD micro or iLink micro?

The iLink micro's performance is not better than the iDSD micro's USB > SPDIF functionality.

The iDSD micro uses I2S, not SPDF.

In case of the iDSD micro, the GMT clock system covers both SPDIF and USB, so in the end for clock and jitter both USB & SPDIF are identical in performance for iFi equipment fitted with SPDIF.

What the iLink micro does bring however is galvanic isolation, if this is required in your system, an iLink micro would be a good choice.
