Onkyo A-9010 internal DAC vs external DAC

Hi everybody,
I have a Mac Mini late 2011 with apaired with the iFi Nano iDSD DAC/ iCAN: the iFI Nano iDSD has the coaxial cable plugged into the Onkyo A-9010 (which has the internal DAC Wolfson WM8718 that unfortunately is not able to play any DSD files...); the Onkyo amp drives a pair of lovely B&W speakers.What can I do in order to exclude the Onkyo A-9010 internal DAC and use only my beloved iDSD Nano (which is my primary DAC)?Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks Fab

Connect the analogue outputs of the iDSD to a spare analogue input on the Onkyo, such as CD (if you're not using it), tuner or aux, and you're done. Those inputs don't go anywhere the amp's internal DAC.
