Bit for Bit Transfers?

Bit for Bit Transfers?

Can I use either the HIFIME UH1 or UX1 SABRE to transfer audio DAT tapes to a Win8.1 PC, using the S/PDIF optical in->USB feature, and receive a bit perfect copy of the original? I seem to remember some interfaces and sound cards would resample automatically (even to the same depth/rate as the source) and others would not. Thanks!

P.S. When is the UH1 back in stock?
Hi, when using UH1 or UX1, the input sample rate is determined by the recording program as far as we know.
It will be back in stock quite soon, 1-2 weeks.
Perfect, sir. Thanks for the quick response. I'm a noob when it comes to understanding these signal paths, but have been attempting to self educate via Google. I'm not smart enough to discern the path the bits take from SPDIF->USB from the product page/pictures. Can you describe that to me? Apologies if this is wrong, but is something like S/PDIF->I2S->USB...bypassing the DAC chip?

Thanks again,
