I've been wondering how feasible it would be to use my cheap Pioneer DVD player as a transport. Of course, it has the digital out but does that digital out include the hi-rez formats also? And are there affordable DACs that handle SACD and DVD-Audio as well as "redbook" CDs?
These may be stupid questions but I'm new to hi-rez digital formats.
BTW, The player sounds pretty good with the hi-rez stuff but I find that it makes a bad CD player. Sounds thin on 16/44 PCM. Even if I hook a DAC up to it for 16/44 PCM I would be happy.
