Two wrongs don't make a right. It is in fact impossible to accurately describe or even approximate DSD-64 (SACD) as any single form of PCM.

DSD-64 is well approximated by 24/40 up to about 15 KHz:...

Yup.

The key to the Kelvin type measurement is injecting the test current by attachment points that are separate from the attachment points used to measure the voltage drop. The measurement...

It looks to me like the Rec Out jacks on the back of the Azur 340 have a signal that would do what you want. From there to your earphone box it would be just a matter of simple cables/adapters.
