Finally got the new speaker set up:

Audio Engine a5+ speakers
Audio Engine S8 Sub
Audio Engine D1 DAC

I set it up and it worked fine and then just stopped working, stopped being listed as plugged into the computer, usb error code 43, device descriptor failed, and then it starts working out of nowhere but now that its working again, itunes doesn't work. It doesn't work at all. I can get audio from youtube or VLC mp3's but itunes is now locked up and wont play anything at all.

Any suggestions?

It doesn't, sporadic software issues can be symptomatic of larger hardware problems. That or you had an existing, unrelated issue.

Hmm, sounds like an issue with your mobo or the DAC. Have you tried using your mobo audio to output directly to the speakers?

Just got done rechecking everything. OK so the D1 DAC won't work with any of the USB ports in the front, 2.0 or 3.0. I had to move it to one of the 2.0 in the read and it worked but still said it wasn't working properly but after some restarts its finally working right and its working with itunes as well. Not sure what made it work but i hope it keeps working.

USB devices not working correctly or not being recognized can be because the device isn't receiving enough power. You can use a USB cable like this one to give it more power:
