    One of my friends has taken a liking to my Meridian 263 and after some discussion he wants a DAC of his own. I will have to buy it for him since I have a paypal account.. anyway he's considering these two:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Arcam-Black-Box-50-DAC_W0QQitemZ5797278247QQcategoryZ3272QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Arcam-Delta-B...797010800QQcategoryZ81741QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Which is better? And how would they compare with the Meridian 263 (or the 203), for those of you who have owned/used/heard them?

    cheers

    I should have mentioned: he has Wharfedale speakers + sub (not sure what model) and a nad S100 preamp into an S200 power amp. He uses his PS2 as the source.. the sound is pretty good as it is, hence his reluctance to buy a separate CDP and "fix what isn't broken".
