Digi+ with ALSA. Can optic and coax work independent?


Is it possible to configure ALSA so that the output format for Coax and Optical is different?

For example I have 2 different systems connected to the hifiberry digi+.
The system connected to the Coax is a stereo that supports DTS and the one connected to the optical is one that dosen't support DTS.

So can I configure ALSA so that it uses passthrough with DTS on Coax and without for Optical? Or are they connected in such a way that they will always output the same format/config?

I use this on a Kodi(openelec) setup. But I guess this is a ALSA question not Kodi.
