AES-EBU or spdif

It seems that best quality output from a laptop based server is spdif. If i use spdif into 8250/60 is there any loss or problem?
Also i plan to use xxhighend. Is there a list of minimum system needed left running for GLM to work?

Thanks for your post and question. The issue of the connection of Sp/dif sources to AES/EBU inputs has been discussed already under the following post. Please have a read!

Connection of Sp/dif sources to AES/EBU

Regarding the minimum system needed for GLM to work, you basically need all loudpspeakers connected to the GLM network via CAT5 cables and the GLM software application running. The application can run in the background and only a minimum display can be left on the desktop (which allows you to select basic volume control, etc,, functions).

Hope it is clear and helpful.
Best regards,
