Can I skip quantizing in the DSO and use the data in the LA instead?Yes, there is a Magnitude Mode display in the Waveform window that provides a digital-to-analog display of a given channel group. The primary application are for users who want to display the actual value of data acquired from a bus, e.g., data encoded in a video signal.
