Disc player and DAC or just a player?

Guy's I appreciate the assist as this is not a specialty of mine. On the verge of buying a TV and BD player and trolling this forum has me thinking I've been dumb. With HT and Music a 50/50 which scenario is the smart approach:

1)Universal disc player (oppo-83, Cambridge 650BD or ???) straight to my reveiver (pioneer SC-07) via HDMI

1a)or perhaps HDMI- video and analog sound. No idea if this is possible but this assumes that the DAC on a player is better than my receiver.

2) Universal disc player with HDMI to receiver and digital to a external DAC and then the analog to my receiver. Again this assumes that the audio and video can be split up.

Associated with the suggestions is any suggested systems like Oppo bdp83 + V-Dac or whatever.

Never bought a dac or player other than my playstation II!

What is your budget and what components do you already have?
