Why no DAC formats?

Why don't any of t he DACs on Massdrop list the formats they support (ie DSD 2.8/5.6MHz, PCM 32bit/384kHz, etc.)?

All of the DACs that I've looked at on Massdrop state which sample rates they support. Not sure where you're getting this from...

That is a function of the device sending the data to the DAC, not the DAC itself.

That's not entirely correct. Many devices have the ability to read a direct stream... especially for DSD files. Others require software to convert the file to PCM before feeding it to the DAC.
