Which DAC is being used?

Good Day! I have a pretty simple hi-fi set up:
BlueSound NODE 2i streamer >> Cambridge Audio CXA81 integrated amp >> Elac Debut DBR62 speakers

I have the option of connecting the NODE 2i to the CXA81 via RCA cables, optical, or coaxial. Each unit has its own DAC. For comparison's sake, how do I know which DAC is being used at any given time?

Thanks in advance!

If you are using optical or

If you are using optical or coax, you are sending digital and the DAC in use is in the CA amp.
If you are using RCA cables, you are sending analog and the DAC in use is in the NODE.
