1,That's not a technical paper per se, but a "consumer brochure"
2,The plyer is unimportant, it uses the same chip you referenced.
3,All high end Denon, and Marantz players use that chip, which in many case called "second generation" by them. Sony simply haven't been interested on SACD for a while, but won't let anyone else have a patent either.
4, Denon use a separate DSP chip for BM and TA because it gives a much more flexibabilty, and versatile options, but it works in a much more DSP friendly PCM domain, so it will requires conversion.
