Basicblak. That all sounds familiar (pun intended). It really is impossible to generalize though its fun to debate. While the DACs in the XA2, and I suppose most current processors , are excellent there is also the influence of the power supply, internal wiring materials, RF insulation, receiver amp etc. to just name a few which impact the final analog output. Some people claim no difference but critical listening over a long period may suggest otherwise.
Certainly makes sense to me.
