The DACs are there to convert any digital signal to analog audio output. Most cheaper UHD players are dropping analog output and only providing hdmi, they have no DAC. Some are retaining full 7.1 analog out, Panasonic. Some provide two channel analog output (pioneer, Sony X1100es). All these players will have DACS. It's up to the user whether they are for music or movies.

Thanks for the explanation Glangford. I'm still not fully understanding though. As I understand it, isn't HDMI passing digital audio data that needs to be converted to analog for me to hear it as movie audio? Thus a DAC is used in every case?

Assume a UHD BR player that has special audio DACs like the Panasonic UB9000...

If I use an HDMI cable from my UHD BR player --> into my AVR --> which go into my speakers, will I be benefitting and experience enhance audio for my movies because of the built-in audio DACs?
