If you believe cheap chips (which discard data) are superior than pure-resistors, that's your business.
Data sheets mean nothing -they cover up and highlight what they want. It's independent study that counts.
"Mountains and Fog" -2 part article at PFO and "R2R/multibit vs. Delta-Sigma" at Head-Fi are good places to start.
As noise is (slowly) dropping in digital processors, we're hearing differences in DAC design. Could we have done this in the 1980s and 90s ? I doubt it...

If you believe so robustly on what the web says about dac chips, then there is not much to be said.
It is not chip technology but package implemetation, including the digital filter, I/V, analog stages, and digital input conditioning that most affect SQ.
Well, then, there's no sense in my trying any further to open an closed mind.
