To get a good sub, spend $500: Reaction Audio BPS 212, SVS PB-1000, or Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus. These are Internet direct brands that are far better values than what you can get in stores.

No need to use the XLR output on the DacMagicPlus if you are running it to unbalanced inputs. You can just use the RCA outputs on the DacMagicPlus instead :)

I'm sorry. I love my Denon receiver. I like Denon products. But I would never jump to that conclusion. If the headphone output in their receivers is so darn good, why wouldn't they provide specs?

With the Rotel RA-1570, I would try the left/right pre-outs/main-ins. If you run those pre-outs to the SB-2000, and then run the SB-2000 outs back to the main ins, the sub will put a high pass filter...
