You can add digital output to any console if you simply convert the analogue to digital, but for real digital sound...  I dunno.  You'd need to know a fair amount about the workings of the DC.  I'll see what I can dig up around here.

The chip that handles the Dreamcast digital to analog audio conversion is a pcm1725 chip.  you can tap into the digital signals there.  However getting the parts to complete the circuit is another story...
