Re: external dac, line connect QC 35 II

I've been wondering as well about purchasing an external DAC for my QC35II. I haven't done so, because if it doesnt work it would be a waste of money. So I seek confirmation as well.
My guess is that because the internal DAC converts a digital signal to an analog one, it would be bypassed when using the audio cable. The incoming signal from the cable is already analog, so there's nothing to convert. But I don't know how this interacts with the ANC function.
