gbaby's point of reference is the Sony BDP-S5000ES. So compared to the BDP-S5000ES the analog stage of the S1000ES may be useless to him. However, as you and others have stated the analog of the S1000ES is probably more than acceptable for most.
It's all about point of reference.
Also, while Burr-Brown, Wolfsons, etc. DACs are good starting points they don't guarantee you sweet music.
