    Denon AVR 1803 - 96khz/24bit audio DA Converter

    Onkyo TX-SR600 - 192 khz/24bit DA Converter

    What does this mean (in real life)?

    It means that The denon can sample an incoming signal and output a waveform in analog by combining 24 samples (bits) at a rate of 96000 times a second

    The Onkyo will give the same resolution 24 samples but will do it more often. Will you hear the difference maybe, doubt it.

    ADC's are easier to explain. It's the same thing but backwards.

    ADC's take in a sine wave, then if it's 24 bit 96Khz it will be clocking the data at 96Khz and taking 24 samples every whatever 1/96Khz is seconds.

    Something like that. Man I really need to brush up on the electronics. I got it in my head just hard to explain.
