Question Desk amp needed - old analogue or new digital?

Hi all,

I need a small amp (space is really at a premium) to drive a pair of B&W 601 s3s by my desk. The input will be Spotify from a mac - so could be digital or analog.

The options I'm considering are either a Denon PMA-50, or going old school with a Musical Fidelity XA-2. Budget is £300-400.

Would I be better off with the better DAC in the Denon (rather than relying on the macbook), or would the Musical Fidelity be the better option?

Thanks,
Nick
