Two questions regarding the Krell:
1) On p. 91, Fred Kaplan describes the Krell as employing, "The Burr-Brown PCM1738 DACs, each capable of handling 24bit data...." As we know well, SACD employs DSD, which is a 1-bit codex. Does this mean that the Krell doesn't decode DSD but rather converts it to 24bit PCM data first? This would seem strange for a $10,000 player (it is one thing for the cheep OPPO).
2) Why don't these magabuck players have digital *inputs* so that one could make use of other digital sources, including my MacBook's 24/96 optical output, in a CAST environment? I remember a high end Adcom CD player used to have one...
