Proceed AVP as a DAC? help from other owners?

HI, I'm looking for some advice...

I recently bought a Proceed AVP and love what it does with digital. Unfortunately, it does suck some of the life out of my analog setup. Since I doubt I could find a better piece to use as a DAC, I'd like to use the AVP as a DAC into my Audio Research LS-9. It should be possible to do this using the record function from the AVP, but it's not obvious to me from either the manual or the setup menu. Can anyone illuminate the topic?
