Correction: Jury still out on Yamaha rx-v371's DSD-conversion capability

In a previous entry, I stated that Yamaha customer service had informed me that their least expensive receiver have the ability to convert DSD directly to analog.  However, I took another look at the manual, and found that the spec provided by Yamaha customer service refers to the HDMI input.  Although it might seem certain that the receiver would not accept (encrypted) DSD if it did not have the ability to convert it directly to analog, it's still possible that it does not.  Until I have absolute proof that it does this, I will keep investigating.
