Default Better converting usb or spdif?

I have in hands a linux box equipped with both USB and spdif digital audio outputs.
I want to send digital audio stream to the I2S inputs of a dac chip.
Will I obtain better results converting usb with a good board, such as those based on xmos, or converting spdif with a good receiver, such as wm8804?
