Hmm... I don't know. I think the flag indicates whether the drive has
DAC and analog audio output, right? I have quite some SATA drives which
don't have audio output at all. I haven't check what they report on the
mode sense page yet. Eh... well, having the bit set when the drive
doesn't support it doesn't hurt too much (yet). Bartlomiej, what do you
think?

Thanks.
