Can you get "audiophile" sound using a native RP4 USB port into a DAC?

A lot of components would affect the sound. Things as simple as using a SD card vs an USB boot would sound different. As I mentioned, if you are not prepared to tweak, an USBridge Sig is better than  Rpi4b out of the box. 

On one end of the spectrum, some are saying digital data is same from both devices, they should sound the same, on the other end, a ssd USB boot sound not as good as a compact flash USB boot. Read some of the comments from:

There are too many factors involved to sound quality. I think only the user can make this call.
