Ok, daft question time.
I was wondering. Assuming we are playing a Blue Ray disk and transmitting via HDMI. What is the difference between players?
My (probably wrong) impression was that the digital data was read from the disk, and sent down the HDMI lead. But then players have DACs both audio and video. Do these come into play for an all-digital setup?
ie, if the disk is read digitally, then sent down the HDMI lead to the TV or AV receiver then what difference would we see or hear?
Thanks for anyone who knows the definitive answer.
