Yes

Currently, no

200$

2. Do you own any SACDs? Yes 200+

3. If so, what percentage of your collection is SACD vs CD or files? < 4%

4. Is SACD/DSD decoding an important consideration when you're looking for a DAC? Important? No (Since I have 2 high quality SACD players). Would I like it?  sure.
