Ok, I was just seeing if you understood what I was saying. So you agree that ultimately its the d/a conversion because ultimately - what we hear is analog. (the d/a conversion of the player only matters if you are using it as the processor -TrueHD,LPCM,DTS Mater - and going analog out to the receivers multi channel inputs)
