Switching to digital?

So... I'm sitting in front of my Genelec sound system, having the time of my life, and still wondering if I can squeeze more out of it by switching to digital.
My DAP has an optical output, so all I need is an SPDIF to AES convertor. Under this scenario this signal path is:
Digital processing inside the DAP - > digital to digital conversion - > Genelec digital to analog.
Under the current setup, the signal path is:
Digital processing inside the DAP - > digital to analog inside the DAP - > Genelec analog to digital - > Genelec digital to analog.
The latter seems to have more steps, but could be those conversations are all lossless.
Any one can opine if I will precieve a difference between the two?
