Cheap disc players equal in sound to Hi-Fi if connected digitally ?

I am new here. I posted another thread about adding a hifi CD player to my system. Got some good feedback already, thanks. I was going to add this new question to that thread but thought this might be worthy of a separate short discussion.

When I got back into the audio hobby about a year ago, I came into it quite 'cold' even in regards to understanding some basics.

I learned this from some of what I considered to be mentors when I was making my initial plans for the system:

" A $70 disc player from a mega mart will sound exactly the same as $6000 super-end audiofile player if connected digitally (coax, toslink..)"

Is this true?

No, it's not. It should be true theoretically, but there's something in the implementation that makes various transports sound different. I think that John Atkinson would be able to shine better light on this issue.
