Never mind the specs: what does it sound like without an external DAC?

Will it beat my SB3+Beresford Caiman?

Now to my impressions on sound quality. This is on my system, my tastes etc, YMMV. The only direct comparison I can do right now is with an SB3, I don't have a transporter or duet. The analog out sound a little better than on the SB3, but not by a lot. The S/PDIF OTOH is much better than on the SB3. The digital out to a really good external DAC can be great sounding.
