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?


Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
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'.
