    I highly doubt it, and agree with Wayne's assessment. More information on what problem you're trying to solve with a digital out would help with coming up with a solution.

    You can buy a DAC that will convert stereo analog to digital, but I couldn't tell you how good it will sound.

    Integrateds are generally stereo analog only, with no processing whatsoever - one of the reasons that makes an integrated attractive for 2ch, IMO.

    How about a stereo receiver? (though many of those may not either...)
