Perhaps ask Sanjay. I emailed Jeff Hipps today and got this response, "

I was referring to decoding inside a two channel dac like the Gen VIII. You would lose Dirac Live so I don't see the point of decoding within an external dac if you lose Dirac live processing. Yes...

You never ran 24/192 with Dirac native because you don't have Dirac on your server and CB4 can't do it. So you really don't know. I agree. Over HDMI, there is likely no difference between Gen VIII...
