Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Best processors -but best tech ?

Believe what you will, but that's factually wrong. An PCM1794A, or an AD1955, or the Sabre chips, etc. produces lower in-band noise and distortion, especially at low signal levels, than does any legacy mass production full resolution multbit converter, including the PCM1704. Read the various datasheets for yourself, unless you believe they all lie. The SDM converters do have greater out-of-band noise - meaning, measurable yet inaudible ultrasonic noise. That said, the multibit converters do have their objective advantages. Subjective sound assessments, of course, vary.

BTW, Because some high-end DAC box is costly usually has little relationship to how costly is the DAC chip being utilized.
