Nucleus USB output to 2 DACs

Is it possible to use the two USB ports on the Nucleus to output to two separate DACs (e.g. a headphone DAC/Amp and the main system DAC)? And if so is there any degradation in sound quality etc.?

I have a NUC/Rock setup, have not tried it with 2 USB dac connections. I have one USB to the only DAC I have. If I had a second USB DAC I would try it and see. I think it would work but can’t say for sure. Try it and see. If it does work it will just be another zone with the same SQ.

BTW, welcome to the community.

Yes it will work. I have had two to my ROCK so it will work for the Nucleus as well. Just name them differently in settings. No it’s does not change sq.

Nucleus is limited to 2 USB ports, the usbc/lightning will not work. I run rock and have had more than 2 dacs connected to it, 5 at one time I recall. I’m not sure how well a usb hud would work tho - perhaps not well but ymmv
