Agreed, this is nuts. Any $1K build can deliver high-quality multichannel PCM over HDMI to a pre-pro.
The only thing that would make a rig 'audiophile' is if it had a modded video card whose HDMI output clock was re-broadcast in something like DenonLink format and when used with a quality pre-amp like the Denon AV-A1, you could have jitter-reduced PCM exchanged over HDMI.
Uhm, now that I mention this, any EE's in the crowd want to build a mod using a video card and some parts from a Denon DVD player with Denonlink?
