Did you actually manager to change the device order? If yes, you have another problem (probably wrong mixer settings).

comment Why does Linux have a maximum number of sound cards?
"Debt" implies that the current implementation has a downside. If you have a system where having more than 32 cards actually makes sense,I'd like to see it.

comment Linux sound: play back audio from input only on specific output device
The Shairport is independent. You just need some software to record from the Toslink input and play this data back on the DAC. Both Jack and PulseAudio should be able to do that.
