I would certainly not say such a thing. There are still poor DACs hiding in various places, such as the headphone jacks on some CD ROM drives and some portable CD players with electronic shock reduction.
Obviously, all DACs are not great, but a large proportion of them are great sounding. This contrasts with the audiophile myth that anybody can run off to an audio store and sort DACs by sound quality in the same way that one might sort different colored M&Ms.
