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

RE: BB PCM1704 and PCM1702...nuff said. (nt)

Your suspicions are correct, the ability of a DAC chip to decode 24/192 has nothing to do with its performance or sound quality at 16/44.

You are also correct that the primary reason why sigma-delta DAC chips have almost completely replaced multibit R-2R chips in audio applications is SD's lower chip manufacturing cost.
