This seems to have got several good reviews but others have reported crackling and popping and a painful trial and error process to eliminate them. Has anyone here experience with USBridge Signature and Volumio? How does it compare to the ASUS Tinkerboard?

No current experience with the USBridge Signature, but may go with that option dependent on the ASR review of the Allo Revolution DAC (anticipated in the next few weeks) as I will require WiFi transport. I have seen the various reports of crackling and popping on the Allo Web Boards. Unfortunately, (or fortunately for the user) it appears those issues were cleared through Allo private messages with the user. In effect we don’t see what the solution was. In any event, if you have not already seen this video by Hans Beekhuyzen on the USBridge it is attached.

I have a USBridge but not signature. If the Sig uses Sparky it's ok but nothing like the performance of the Tinker. The Tinker is very good vs a number of other options I have.
