As you know, you need a mini Toslink cable to replace the 3.5 mm audio cable.
I am not sure about getting DSD out to an external DAC.
I have a CCA and what I tested was streaming a DSD file and a 96 kHz hi resolution file to the CCA. That was using Plex and casting. The CCA is connected to a Denon X4200W. The 96 kHz file shows up as 96 kHz on the Denon input screen. The DSD shows up as 48 kHz, because somewhere in the chain, the file had to be converted to PCM. I am not positive if this is a Plex or CCA limitation. Is DSD even possible over a digital (not HDMI) connection?
