I understand but I think from implementation the minor enhancement to play back another format may be easier in terms of manufacturing something that decodes another format (e.g. licensing). Playing back DSD or converted DSD allows one to chose a DAC of their choice. I'd love Bryston to have a DSD DAC. It's not out of the question that I could consider the Meitner. My first challenge is to get enough stuff digitzed before I jump in. Once that is done, then it becomes a matter of looking what is out there and what is likely to become. I'm really happy with the current system and if I do upgrade something, it is going to be a digital source and DAC. I'm hoping by the Spring to Summer time from of 2013, I'm either done or close to done with digitization. There are servers that do DSD and having a Bryston player at a decent price point (perhaps 25-30% above the current BDP) with USB, Firewire and SPDIF out that can do DSD and DSD convertered to PCM to me sounds like it could have enough of a market to make it worthwhile.
