DAC's do not decode Dolby Digital or DTS. DSP's are doing that.
And anyway, those lossy compressed signals are not something that need good DAC's - the best you get is around 55dB dynamic.
Now, a 5.1 DAC fed from the digital outputs of a DVD-A/SACD decoder chip (to replace the original one on the DVD board) is another thing...
