[LAU] 384kHz DAC - Monolith USB?

controversial claims by audiophiles notwithstanding... i'm somewhat
interested in high-samplerate DAC's for the possibility of time domain
multiplexing of multiple channels. 2 channels @ 384 kHz = 16 channels @ 48
kHz if you had a driver + external hardware to do the muxing/demuxing. of
course you'd need some sort of "word select" embedded in the signal -
perhaps you could do this with GPIO, or maybe use part of the 32 bits
samples as metadata. wouldn't be easy, but i wonder if it's possible.
anyway the first step would be getting a DAC like this to work with the
host at these high sample rates, so if anyone has experience with that, i'd
be curious to know.
