Me is only able to answer the second question.... maybe...
Imagine a Sony, an Aiwa and a Mitsubishi Cd-Player with exact the same Philips hardware inside (16 bit, 44.1 kHz).
Some of them chassis are so well built, that you can change hardware, diy-wise (4 to 32 bits/sampling rate from 1 Hz to 655.35 kHz in 1 Hz increments in flac-format).
Others are built that circumstantial that not many other hardware components are able to take place (16bit/44.1 kHz or 16bit/48kHz in shn-format)
