I got a bit of money recently (my Great Aunt died ) and the first thing I decided I'd get was a new TV. I'm going to go for the Samsung LE26R41B LCD that everyone seems to be talking about. Anyway that just made me realise that I couldn't really have such a good TV and still have the sound coming out my rubbishy old Sanyo stereo. I didn't know anything about AV before reading this forum but now I think I have an idea what I want. I'm planning on getting a stereo amp, bookshelf speakers and a DAC to plug my DVD player (a Pioneer DV575A ) which will be used for CDs too. The sound will be used for DVDs, CDs, Freeview, and my GameCube. I don't want to spend much more than £500 on all this stuff, so I was thinking about a NAD C320BEE amp and Mission 71 speakers. The DAC was a bit more tricky but I've found a couple of ebay auctions. One for a Cambridge Audio DAC Magic 2 and one for a Meridian 203, both of which I believe are fairly old but still well respected. Does all that make sense? Which DAC (if either) should I go for and what's the maximum I should bid for it?
