The setup would go like this instead:

and at that point you could, as argued in this thread, just go with onboard and SPDIF to the receiver.
Yea that is why I was all confused at the hate for spdif. I notice a lot of people are going on-board spdif -> external DAC -> amp ->speakers/headphones.

As for the OP's question. Lineout --> to the z2300. since there is no digital input on those speakers.
