I believe that you are confused. This discussion is about DSD over HDMI. All of the formats that you quoted are PCM and are easily supported.

What other method is available? There are a couple of Pre/Pro/AVR units that have a USB B port, but they are not able to decode multichannel DSD. ASIO4All only seems to work via USB.
