Not at all, very informative stuff and big thanks to Mufflore. Although I admire his pursuit of audio perfection, not sure I could extend mine to that level. For one I believe there are degrees of diminishing returns the higher you go up the bit rates/sampling rates scale. Which then requires proper encoded material (ie, Dolby True-HD, DTS-HD) that contains it and far greater space/bandwidth the higher up you go. I'm perfectly content with 24-bit/48khz and even with SPDIF 5.1. Uncompressed music is fine over SPDIF if your OK with standard 2 channels. The other thing, not sure I would give up my SBZ sound processing for games for an external dac, as the latter would bypass it entirely. Same with HDMI connection thru GPU, the SBZs gaming capabilities I believe are far better than anything that may bypass it.
