If you are going towards computer, get a DAC that can handle USB. The Arcam is great as a transport. Once you get everything on a computer or network hard drive you will love it.

Both aforementioned opinions have merit. Depends on how one wants to configure ones system. However, I would buy a DAC and use the Arcam as a transport. Greater flexibility down the road. Both DACs you are considering are highly regarded. FWIW, I use a Arcam DVD137 as a transport into my Bryston BDA-1. I use a Audiophellio2 for USB/SPDIF conversion.
