" 1's and 0's are 1's and 0's."
As been discussed here many times that statement is simply not true.
Timing errors are a major problem in digital playback. Also Delta Sigma chips handle the 1's and 0's completely different from ladder chips and they sound very different.
In context, meaning that I have recently admitted a difference between asynchronous and ladder DACs, and clearly stated that I was speaking of similar DACs, the asynchronous vs ladder DAC statement is a strawman argument. As for the argument that how 1's and 0's get to analog being central vs the output ckt being central, the only way either theory could be proven, as far as I know, would require swapping the digital and outputs between DACs, which as far as I know isn't going to happen.
