Hi BR,

Edo on the SBT gives 24/192 max on both spdif outputs.

Looking at the spec for your receiver I can see no USB input which would
be needed for DSD in direct form.

One of the cheapest DSD dacs that work with the SBT usb output is 'this
' (http://ifi-audio.com/portfolio-view/nano-idsd/)

There are lots more if you google.

Ignore the people who tell you not to bother as you are only buying
padded out files :p;):D.

Enjoy your music.

If you are in the UK pm me and I can post a couple for you to try (if
your not in a hurry :) ).
