Looking to purchase a Panasonic DP-UB9000 movie disc player. i only want to use it for video and have the movie sound fed through my standalone dac for the improved sound quality (esoteric k01xd dac). any experience with this?

Ore clarification

I ordered a esoteric k01xd dac/transport, if I also buy a Panasonic DP-UB9000 for playing movies can I bypass the Panasonic dac and play the movie audio through k01xd (for improved sound quality) when watching movies via the Panasonic? I see the Esoteric has 2 digital inputs RCA and optical. The Panasonic has an optical and coaxial output. Therefore what I want to do is feed video to my TV via HDMI from Panasonic but feed audio from Panasonic to esoteric via one of the connections previously mentioned so I can listen to movies via my 2 channel system through the esoteric dac and not the Panasonic dac.

Currently I have an Ayre dx5 Blu-ray player for movies via hdmi but movie audio plays through an Ayre QX5 via AES/EBU CABLE. it works great but the esoteric does not have AES/EBU input and the dx5 does not have any other digital outputs so I cannot get it to play movie audio through esoteric which is why I am looking to buy the Panasonic

I have a UB9000, video hdmi goes to tv via a hdfury diva, audio hdmi goes direct to my soundbar. The Hdfury allows me to see what signal and edid is used for a particular configuration

You want to use a DAC instead of soundbar? My tv only supports 5.1 which is why I use direct audio connection
Is that what you mean? If so then yes provided you enable it in the menu

I think the cheaper 820 does this as well

update: lol, just spotted the date!
