Check out this new DAC. They claim it decodes the HD Blu-ray codexs into 2-channel analog, as well as has analog inputs and volume adjustment; all with a remote control. The claims seem great, but it seems like a lot of features for a small box with a $700 price tag.
If you’re an audiophile with a classic older analog preamp or receiver, you’ve got a problem. The highest resolution uncompressed audio content on Blu-ray has been out of your reach, and most Blu-ray players only have HDMI & Coaxial outputs now, no more analog except on the most expensive models on the market. The HDACC is a versatile digital preamp with HDMI, USB, Optical, Coaxial, & Analog Line Inputs coupled to a DAC with RCA and XLR preamp output that converts all your audio sources to 24 bit / 96K-192K analog stereo, including headphone out with its own amplifier.
