Connecting speaker to PC with SPDIF?

So as I was looking for a new set of speakers for my PC and I noticed that there were "digital input, optical" on the back of the speaker. I was specifically looking at the ONKYO WAVIO GX-D90 review.

Then checked the back of my PC and found a SPDIF out, which I assume is where the two plug together. Correct?

As someone with no knowledge on this I have to ask that is digital input/output the best way to transmit the best audio quality? Although I can't do any type of specific explanation I am assuming that digital is better than analog.

Just for bonus question, which speaker is better?

Yes your digital optical would be the best. You would need something like this. If you don't have one already.

As far as the speakers go, I believe it's personal preference. I would bet on the onkyo's however.
