Arylic S50Pro+ preferred output - Fixed volume

I’ve ordered an Arylic S50 Pro+ (ESS Sabre 9023 DAC) streamer and Edifier r1280dbs active speakers. I’m trying to figure out how to get the best sound by connecting through

  • RCA, or
  • Digital Toslink, or
  • Coax out Would appreciate any guidance here.

I would guess the RCA is recommended, but I’m not sure. Will the Optical out bypass the internal streamer DAC completely and feed the signal to Edifier internal DAC?

Secondly, will any of these connections, RCA, Digital, Coax from the S50 give a fixed volume level? I don’t want to pre amp to the edifiers if that’s possible.
