Hdmi or analog input?

I have a Yamaha rx v665 (and no, I’m not running my lsi speakers on it) and I was wondering, would I get better quality if I use an hdmi input to play my music or a analog input? My source is my iPad mini 3, with no external DAC. So, really my question is, is the DAC in my amp better than the one in my tablet?

Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
Main setup:
Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.
An old post I found on AK, from 2013.
I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.
