That way, my Denon transport could just have an additional HDMI out, without needing design in the conventional toslink and coax interface. I know that it is all still in the digital domain, but the simpler the better, in my opinion.

Probably a stupid question. Just curious.
It has with SACD, but oh wait, that and DVD-A are all but dead or dying.

As for regular CD digital feed? I don't think so....
