I wouldn't do it. You'll loose the clock link.

If you want to get the best sound out of MSB you should get their transport (which will be connected to DAC via pro I2S). Or... Wait a bit until they release Network Renderer Input. This thing will turn any MSB DAC into digital streamer (for only $1000).
If you connect MSB Analog to your transport via XLR you won't be able to hear all DAC's abilities!
By the way, CD-quality records sound excellent with Analog DAC and I see no reason to purchase it only for Hi-Res records. If you like the way Analog plays Hi-Res I see no reason why you won't like the way it plays CDs...
