Basically yes. But SINAD is not the full picture. There are frequency response, multitone, IMD vs Level, distortion vs frequency etc. In general and objectively, if all the distortion components under all conditions are under -115dB ref to 0dB, it's provably inaudible. The DACs that fall into this catagory will sound the same.So a dac with very good sinad measures like Topping E30 sounds the same as Gustard x16, D70, D90...?
