Re: cd player people
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.
