Some chips are proprietary such as Yamaha's 32-bit processing in their receivers, there's HK's use of Cirrus 32-bit chips, and yet others employ 3 separate 32-bit chips such as Sony ES. Is there a difference that affects the sound between these different chipsets, or does it all boil down to the more features you have (DDEX, DTS-ES, DTS:Neo, PLII, L7...), the more processing power you'll need? Does this explain Sony ES use of 3 separate 32-bit chips? And how does it benefit from 24-bit?
