It finally occurred to me that the Bryston SP3 doesn't accept DSD and the previous owner may have used DSD. That was the problem. With the DX-5 DSD sending 24/192 LPCM, the sound with SACDs is spectacular. The DX-5 DSD must send very clean HDMI and the SP3 DAC process must be very good. It was a revelation.
I am pretty sure the DX-5 does not send high res over the digital AES connection (only downsampled signals), do you mean you use the analog outputs ?
