Mini PC Linux with SPDIF output to play music

The question is, is some cheap mini-PC will advise you to play the music by connecting to speakers via SPDIF (optical audio out)?

It needs to solve the following tasks:
1. To play music from VK, 8tracks.com and similar services (flash/html5);
2. To play music from AAC/MP3 to online streams (to be able to run vlc player);
3. (don't know how to implement) to Reproduce the sound that is playing on the laptop (windows) without connecting wires. Ie on the laptop is a virtual playback device, the signal is transmitted via wi-fi on the device, and he gives it to the SPDIF.

To control all of this via SSH/RDP (TV not provided).

The first thing that googled it is — cubox-i.com/ ($68 without shipping), or such habrahabr.ru/company/boxowerview/blog/186148/ (about $80). The first looks nicer, but something expensive, because I only play music.

But I've been wondering — speakers with S/PDIF, so inexpensive, and cubox — expensive? The presence of such acoustics must assume the existence of an appropriate iron. And there is a simple piece of iron can not do.
Also the cheapest kyubi only 45 bucks, and from S/PDIF.
Well, speakers are $125 — 2.1 system of Edifier here's www.edifier-international.com/products/edifier-multimedia/s330-s330d - kole.Emard84 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:36
Cheapest kyubi only 45 bucks without the PSU and without wifi and without delivery. Once you have added the PSU and Wi-Fi immediately out $68 + shipping don't know how much they will count. - kole.Emard84 commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:39
