As a counter-sample, my sole DVD-Audio disk will play in consumer DVD
players as a DVD-Video disk showing a tracklist menu while playing AC3
encoded music.  While I have a DVD-Audio player in my office, I only
have the digital outputs hooked up (feeding into a Dolby E encoder), and
when playing DVD-Audio disks, it only uses the analog outputs, so I can
only use this disk in the non-DVD-Audio player.
