I'm going to experiment myself but I figured it's good to ask since others probably have experience with this already. Grateful for any input!

I don't have the I/O board (only SDRAM).
I use an HDMI to VGA adapter that has an audio output:
Works great for me and it's cheap. (about US $8)
I also use it for Raspberry PI and other SBC. For MISTer no need to connect the USB power, just plug the VGA and audio and it just works.
If using a 4:3 monitor make sure all cores you are running are set to 16:9 aspect ratio so they fill the screen.

I have the audio out of the monitor connected to a switch box.I honestly can't tell the difference between the HDMI audio and the analog. I notice no crosstalk or noise. I don't know if I should expect less or more noise how I did it.
The BOOM Sorgelig spoke of when changing cores definitely happens but does not bother me even though I have a subwoofer connected. To me its more of a POP than BOOM.
It's definitely not like the Raspberry Pi where the analog audio is totally popping and hissing garbage compared to the HDMI output. I ended up putting a HiFiberry on that thing.
