yes, it should be possible with no issues! i feel ashamed to say i haven't even touched the spectre so far myself (i'm basically using my blofeld as a glorified slightly-modified-preset machine and master keyboard as i said earlier) but from everything i've read and heard that's exactly the type of use it's meant for.
btw. IF you got the keyboard version, it already comes with the sample option. only the desktop version needs a separate license. both have the hardware already built in so it's just a software update for the desktop model.
as an aside (kind of offtopic again), do you have the galbanum architecture 2010 set and if so, how do you like the content? i downloaded http://www.adventurekid.se/akrt/wavefor ... waveforms/
yesterday and just dumped it to the octatrack, but i also remembered the galbanum set i was going to buy for other uses previously. wondering if i should spend the cash and buy it as well.

My guess is that you would need some sort of drive from DAC to SPDIF across an RCA cable, but if it were that easy, very interested in understanding what audible difference is between the three.
i'm not sure if i understood your question correctly, but i guess the most meaningful comparison would be from Blofeld DAC to a decent (say, RME) ADC vs. direct digital recording. unless there are serious jitter issues with the whole digital signal path or something was set up incorrectly, i suppose there should be no difference between optical and coaxial SPDIF if the audio was just recorded to a file.
some people on the internet say that the DAC in blofield is kind of crap and the digital output mod makes it sound a lot better. then again, some people on the internet say a lot of things without providing clear comparison / evidence...
