I hope you are right for most of i.link receivers. However, I believe that Denon 5805, probably 4806 as well, and Marantz SR9600 can be configured to do DSD pass-through only with speaker location delay. I am not sure about others, though.
I just figured that Pioneer 59TXi would do that because the DACs used in the box can't accept DSD. But I am afraid DACs used in other AVRs such as 55TXi/56TXi, V4600/Z9, NR1000/DTR10.5/RDC7.1 can accept both DSD and PCM, so can't figure out easily.
