Using Several DAWS & Traktor Through interface and to Produce Surround Sound

Hi Guys
Having a problem trying to sort this out at the moment
Im wanting to run the usual music production stuff
i.e. Ableton - Traktor - Maschine in a music jam setup.
I use Logic X (10.3) & Ableton (9.7.1) on the music production side as well
Plus wanting to create music in 5.1 -7.1 as a project with soundtracks for a pre university course in sound design and production..
My set up is so far is a IMac 27 inch (late 2013) and I've ordered a focusrite 18i20 (2nd gen) I'm wanting to connect it to a Yamaha DSP A2 Surround sound amp.
Is this possible or do i need an extra box to convert to the inputs on the back,
I have seen the extra connections for an"external decoder" on the back of DSP for "main - surround- centre - sub" would this work, (6 connections)
Or go down the path of using connections as you would like connecting a DD -DTS Dvd player - i.e. 2 x RCA phono - 1 x S/PDIF
yes the 18i20 does do "TOSLINK" but its ADAT so that wouldn't work or would it..
A bit tricky to sort this out, in theory this looks a great setup but in trying to figure cables - connections - extra "box's" this could be a right money pit and I'm sure I could do this within a decent budget without breaking the bank and my technical brain

Lives for gear
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "several Daw's"? On the same machine at once?
