Properly connecting 8240 with AES from RME hdspe sound card

Hi!

I'm currently running my two 8240 via analogue cables and I'm about to switch to a fully digital domain. I did a little research and the RME HDSPe AIO (http://www.rme-audio.de/en_products_hdspe_aio.php) sound card has an optional digital breakout cable with one AES XLR input and output: http://www.rme-audio.de/images/products ... _bo968.jpg

Since each unit (8240) has it's own AES input, my question is if it is possible to use the aforementioned sound card with the breakout cable for my stereo setup? As far as I know RME offers a sound card called HDSPe AES with loads of AES ins and outs, although I still need analog connectivity.

EDIT: I managed to answer this myself. The 8240 has AES/EBU thru so only one cable is needed for the input, the other will go from one speaker to another.
