does that mean that the smartphone's dac is bypassed?


Absolutely yes. And the smartphone's amp.

You feed the secondary DAC via USB out. The smartphone never gets into the analogue conversion. It outputs pure digital.

For a while I was running this little setup.

Let someone correct me if I'm wrong (I'm no expert), but I don't think you can. You'd have to put a conversion box between the phone and the DAC.

What DAC are you looking at that has optical and coaxial, but not USB?
