Question Digital coaxial splitter question

Will a RCA Y-adapter work with a digital coaxial plug? I have just bought a Sony blu ray player that has one digital coaxial female plug. I need to connect that to two amplifiers. Can I just use a normal RCA Y-adapter with one male and two female plugs to split the signal and connect to the amps with two digital coaxial cables, or do I need a special coaxial adapter? If I need a special adapter, please suggest a brand that I can order from (I live in Canada).

One of my amps is a tube amp that only takes RCA L&R input. The blu ray player does not have RCA L&R output plugs but does have a digital coaxial output plug. I have a digital audio to RCA converter into which I will plug one of the digital coaxial cables from the blu ray player and connect to the amp that way.

Thanks for any advice!

RCA splitter is cheap enough, give it a try. In theory it should work.
