I don't know of any such product, but there is a nice little workaround many of us here have used with great success. If stereo is your highest priority, get a good stereo pre and just use that with a decent but relatively inexpensive AVR or prepro (that has preamp outs) that you can less painfully swap out later as needed when video processing standards or connections inevitably change. Hook the front L/R preamp outs from prepro into an HT bypass or an unused input on your stereo preamp and you're good to go. The prepro is completely out of the system for stereo listening, and you can use whatever DAC you please. This scenario also lets you spend more of your budget where it matters more and less where quality is less critical. The only downside of doing it this way is you have another box in your rack and need another interconnect. Hope this helps.
