cpu usage on dac+ with alsa audio

I'm just looking at some of the stats playing a 44100 hz feed.
on an RPI2 when I'm running squeezelite, CPU load on the HDMI output equates to about 4% where as the hifiberry output it's consistently generating about 15% - is this normal? it just seems a little excessive for what it is doing.
