SPDIF coax or AES/EBU connections would allow us to add an ADC or DAC of our choice. The photo on the Cranborne website still shows the SPDIF RCA connections, but apparently those are gone.

It's too bad, other than that the R8 looks like an interesting box. I was following these Cranborne threads with enthusiasm until the removal of SPDIF, for me it's a deal breaker.
