Yeah that is what I was thinking too, that what is sent to the internal dac was pcm signal as well. It makes a lot of sense.
Yeah, those customer reps aren't the greatest. It seems like they just took a gander at the box and told me what they read off of it. It is like, "I didn't ask you to read me the box, I am asking you to use your "internal" knowledge of the products to see if you can give me a some sort of reasonable answer."
Yeah I was really going to use it for my headphones, but I was looking at the Asgard 2 which has the line out for power monitors or stereo amplifiers.
