Default Can Realtek ALC889 output DSD?

I was wondering since the Realtek states that it can handle incoming DSD will it be able to output DSD? I want to use this for my Buffalo dac that is arriving soon. I tried searching the datasheet and can not find anything mentioning DSD, but only HDA. Here is the link for the datasheet.

I read through the list of features and didn't see a mention of DSD.

This chip is a sound card chip for a PC. How are you going to use it? Are you going to write your own driver? Or modify an existing sound card?

I think you would be much better off searching through the Buffalo threads for information. One of the DVD/SACD player mods sounds like a much better idea.
