The HINT 6’s built-in 32 Bit DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) uses a ultra-high resolution 384kHz ESS Sabre32® Reference DAC IC. The asynchronous USB input supports PCM up to 384kHz/32-bit and DSD256. The 2 optical and 1 coax inputs can decode high resolution PCM audio up to 192kHz/24-bit. The P 6’s DAC is superior to the DACs in most digital source components. These sources will sound better if you connect one of their digital outputs to the P 6's DAC instead of connecting their analog output jacks.
