The only time I experienced noise with PI3 was with the PI2 design tube amp. With the BOSS no noise whatsoever

I don't think there is a straight winner to pick.

Without actually having tested these setups, going for a setup with the Kali makes sense. You get one of the best I2S signals and you probably do not need the Ifi power as the Kali and its PSU take care of clean power to feed both the Pi and the DAC.

Which DAC to choose is hard to decide as it probably comes down to personal taste as each DAC might sound a little different.

The Piano 2.1 has a few features (the second output pair and the DSP chip functions) that are not on the others, but only relevant if your setup requires these (to feed an active sub for example).

If the Boss benefits from the Kali, I am not certain but @allo can probably answer that :)

Boss will not even work with a Kali...Boss is like a reclocker + DAC on same board.

Boss needs about 120mA of power...RPI psu will be enough
