edit 2 : i found that the 5400 ose has a cs4392 built in dac, how does it compare ?
Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you sooner, I have had a hell of a week.

Any all in one receiver will have an onboard dac because there are no home theater systems that are meant to be run off an analog audio source. Its all digital.

IDK how the dac will compare to the modi. There is a possibility the marantz could be better. A lot of dac chips from the 90's to early 2000s were actually really good and arguably better than todays dac chips.

However........even though there is a possibility, I certainly wouldn't hold your breath.

Well, to be absolutely fair, holding other people's breath is considered a crime in most countries.
