I am guessing they have the same, or very simialar DAC, so you are probably fine with the HDMI. If you think the DAC is better in the BluRay player, then the analog output should sound better.
HDMI vs analog
I have a Marantz BD8002 Blu-ray hooked to a Marantz SR8002 receiver. For now I am using my blu-ray as my cd playback. Currently I am only using my HMDI connection. The sound is very good but I am wondering if would/should experience richer playback if I was using my analog connection for cd-playback? Would the DAC process be any different/better? Any insight as to how I might tweak my setup to ensure maximum playback quality would be helpful.
