Benefits of XLR AES/EBU

Apart from the obvious difference in impedance levels between XLR analogue (75 ohm) and XLR digital AES/EBU (110 ohm), what benefits are there in having AES/EBU input / output connections? Does Genelec have plans to utilise these connections with added technology in the future? Why should we care about digital AES/EBU?

What is your Question? The difference between digital and analog transfer?
Both ar standart connections, nothing new.
... with AES/EBU you have a digital signal from the source to the
End without changigng ist format digital to analog and vice versa some times.
Since the 82.. series uses internaly digital processors, every incomming analog signal
will changed into digital. So you can get in digital via AES/EBU without changing the format.
