It seems that getting a machine shipped will trump the choice of machine.
Any of them will serve you well. A HX is not better than a DB or the other way around, they produce the same results but the method is different. It depends on you and what you expect to do with the machine that will tilt your direction one way or the other.

Keep in mind that it's not just the machine that makes the espresso amazing.  The grinder, operator's skill, beans, grind, dose, etc all matter as well.

Which is better a red car or a blue car?
What do you like? What do you plan do use for a grinder? Without a quality grinder, the machine is only just so much metal on the counter. To that, fresh QUALITY beans need to be used, without them, you might as well use pods.

In order to brew great caffè you need several things which can be subsumed with the four "M"s of espresso making: miscela (coffee blend), macinacaffè (grinder), macchina (espresso machine), and mano (skills of the barista). I suggest this article on Home-Barista.com for further reading.

Both machines you have in consideration are capable prosumer HX espresso machines, so you can't really go wrong there. Therefore you should probably base your decision on factors like supply, value for money, and last but not least availability of service (maintenance and repair).

Pros
You can brew as many as 14 cups of coffee or just one, depending on your preference.

Cons
You cannot substitute a thermal coffee carafe for the glass carafe that comes with this coffee maker.
The Verdict
: 9.9/10

You can brew regular- or bold-strength coffee with this versatile coffee maker. It tells you when the brew is ready and lets you know when to clean it. When it comes to features, the handy Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-2600CH is a great choice.
