What is your digital source component?

I have a MAP-1 but I don't use a D/A converter. With the MAP-1 you lose the flexibility that comes with having a home theatre receiver. My components that run into the MAP-1 are a Sony SCD-C222ES SACD player and a cheapo Toshiba DVD player with DVD-Audio output. I lose the ability to play DVDs in DTS mode, but I don't think I lose much else. (Bass management and speaker delay functions are also missing, but I don't want them so I don't miss them). All in all, I think the MAP-1 is fantastic, but really belongs at the center of a music system, not a home theater system.
What problem are you trying to solve with a D/A converter?
I was looking at a MAP-1 as the center piece of a home theater system.
I have a satellite box that has 5.1 capability but only via toslink and coax. There is no 6 channel analog out so I would be forced to use the satellite in 2 channel mode which I don't want to do.
Your explanation makes a lot of sense so the MAP-1 unfortunately won't work in my setup.
