Should be a tossup between HDMI and toslink since they are both digital connections. I'd go with HDMI as I like the one cable solution for both audio and video. I'm not sure what DACs the hd-a2 has, but the DACs in the Denon are Analog Devices AD-1835. You could try the analog outputs but I doubt you will find they sound better.

I'd just try each connection method and go with the one that sounds best, if there isn't an audible difference, go with HDMI since you have to make that connection anyway for video.

For a true CD listening experience you need an analog connection. :fyi:

So a digital connection to a DAC superior to that of the original player would yield a less than perfect "CD listening experience"?
