Marantz cd5004.

Which connection should I use, Analog or Digital. The unit has a "Audio EX Function" EX - off which is digital. EX1 digital. And the one Im confused about is the EX 2 which is analog but states that it plays audio at the highest quality sound. I always thought digital is the way to go to produce the bes possibe sounds. Denon the AVR its connecting with claims an Anolog connection will degrads the sound. Any idea on the matter is sure aprecitave.

Use the digital connection. In terms of basic sound quality, it doesn't matter. But your Denon probably re-digitizes it anyway, so you might as well send it the digital signal to statr with.
