I am currently using an apple airport express to stream itunes through my arcam amp.Would i be able to improve the sound with a meridian 203 dac and how would i connect this,any help would be great
If you have the meridian already, absolutely, but it will need an optical in, since the AE only has an optical out (which is also the headphone socket). Get a 'toslink jack to toslink' cable that looks like this and bob's your uncle:
CA StreamMagic 6 | CA 751BD | CA 651A | PMC DB1i

Oh and by the way, get Airfoil as well because it's genius - allows you to stream anything from your Mac or PC to AE, not just iTunes content.
Just downloaded the trial. £13 for a server and as many clients as you like. Genius!For a member of the geek industry who has more windows-based rubbish around the house than is healthy, this could be my Sonos...for next to nowt!

Other kit: More than I should have. My loft is creaking.
Isn't it? I didn't try the 'Instant Hijack' to take over apps on the fly, which I think was a separate download, so had to restart clients before they worked, but was nice to hear Ms Newsome being velvety in my living room.
Always nice to have Claire in your lounge. Can't get the hijack as I'm firmly in the Gates rather than Jobs camp when it comes to computers, and it's only available on Mac.But I have Salling Clicker, which can control iTunes and Media player on a windows PC from my Nokia E65 over wifi, so that does the job...
Wish I'd invented it........
I got a Griffin AirClick, which works on iTunes as well as controlling powerpoint presentations and a few other apps. Pretty cool and cheap as dirt.

Radio 4, close mic. Makes everybody velvety.
