I've been using my Node 2i for almost 2 years now, only through its analog outs, mainly so I can take full advantage of Tidal's MQA tracks. But I also subscribe to Qobuz, and recently I've been wanting to utilize an outboard DAC for playing of those files, just to compare. So I added a coax cable from the Node's coax output to the external DAC input, but I'm not getting any sound from it. The analog connection continues to work fine. That leads me to two questions:
1. Can I actually have both the Node's coax and analog outs connected at the same time? In other words, keep the analog connection as I have it now, for listening to Tidal, but also have a coax connecting the Node to my other DAC, for listening to Qobuz, all without having to unplug the one I'm not using at the moment?
2. Is there a setting I need to change in the Bluesound desktop or mobile app to switch between analog and coax outputs? Because right now, just switching between analog and digital inputs on my preamp gives me sound only from the analog source.
