If he buys a converter/power supply for usb to s/pdif and has limited resources for the dac, an older 16/44 or 24/96 dac/cd player could be a good choice. My cd player/dac retailed for over $6k 5-6 years ago, but I bought it for about $1000 because it only plays native files to 24/96, and the guy who sold it was upgrading to 32 bit. Folks are selling off good quality (top of the line) 16/44 and 24/96 dacs pretty cheaply that sound great if your native files are 16/44 or 24/96, and you supply it a good s/pdif signal. I generally don't like upsampling and again, there's so little music of interest (to me) available above 24/96.
    In general I'd avoid a player, but I think you are spot on about the deeply discounted recent high end players.

    I debated using the "big grin" or "stick out tongue" but apparently once again went the wrong direction

    In seriousness, I believe once upon a time you did a comparison of your Bryston to the Oppo and were fairly kind to the Oppo by comparison, no?
