I want to confirm the following doable. Right now, I have an Airport Express. I split the analog out so that it goes to my home theater system (powered by a Denon 3311ci) and to a Control 4 multi zone amp. This set up allows me to include the home theater within a mutli-zone party mode (I have a very open home layout) and have all of the zone synced.

I would like to upgrade the quality of the music coming from the Airport Express. I was thinking of adding a DAC between the Airport Express and the Denon and Control 4.

Here's my question? Can I have the Airport Express run into the DAC and then come out as two synced analog signals that I can run to the Control 4 and Denon. I haven't see many DACs with two analog outs. I think the Peachtree and Beresford DACs allow for this.

Can somebody confirm my strategy?

Get a pair of y-cables for the DAC outputs.

Thanks, Kal. So I don't need a DAC with two analog outs then.

You do not. OTOH, why not feed digital to the Denon?
