Hello, I have a question :)

I currently own a DAC/AMP, Denon DRA-100.
The way I currently use streaming services with this device is chromecast -> tv -> digital (coax) -> denon -> analog speakers.
This works well but I would like to stream my music, using Tidal or Qobuz, in 24bit/192Khz resolution.
I am considering purchasing a dedicated music streamer, Bluesound Node i2, which supports that resolution aswell as decoding of Tidal's MQA.

What would be the best way for me to utilize the Bluesound along with the Denon together?
I am confused because the Bluesound has a DAC included which I don't know if I should use or not.
By transferring digital audio by a coax cable from the Bluesound to the Denon?
Or by transferring converted, analog audio from the Bluesound to the Denon?

Thank you so much!

Alternative. Use the Denon as a power amp.
