    Couple questions:

    The signal coming out of the airport express is analog or digital?

    I was trying to stream iTunes via WiFi, to the a.e. then connect the airport express to my DAC then with RCA's to the pre-amp and 2 channel stereo.

    If the signal coming out of the a.e. is analog then I guess there is no need running through the DAC again, correct?

    If the signal is digital, what type of cable do I need to get to the DAC, a.e is analog/optical audio jack and input on the DAC is Toslink???

    Im getting mixed answers and I'm confused at this point. :confused:

    Thanks,
    newb RonW.

    From Apple tech page for Airport Express:
    So, yes, either analog, or digital audio is available from the output from your Airport Express, depending on what you use to connect.
    Standard audio minjack for analog, or a minijack with extended jack adapter for the digital output in the same connection.
    Apple sells this cable, which includes the adapter that you would need.

    Or, you can get a cable with the proper end - no adapter needed.
