I am waiting for my new 8330 speakers and sub 7350 along with the glm 3.0 Kit, as well as the volume, and I would like your opinion on the two dacs. One is analog XLR and the other is digital AES / ebu. What is best to choose between the two dac. Analog or digital ???

This is AES/ebu DAC

And this is analog dac

Pure digital has the advantage of lower noise floor.
Better choice unless you specifically want to add the sonic characteristics of your D/A.

My two cents on DD conversion:
The genelecs top out at 96 Khz
Upsampling only works with multiples of original rate.
Upsampling 44.1 Khz to 96 Khz or 196 Khz will make the sound worse, upsampling to 88.2 or 176,4 can have benefits.
No equipment in the world can reproduce better than 96 Khz 20bits, many DACS will sound worse at 196 than at 96 Khz.

I'm a studio guy, don't know much about hi-fi DACs.
Personally I'd use a passively cooled  home theater PC with a build in RME soundcard.

I suggest you buy as little stuff as possible.
If you only have a CD/SACD player, I'd connect it to the genelecs directly, done.
If you have a computer and a cd player, the device you listed should be fine.
If you have a turntable things are gonna get complicated.

What you need in any case is a volume contoller for genelec GLM.
There is a wired and a wireless version, I have both, very much prefer the haptic feedback of the wired one:
