I would appreciate some pointers

I've been enjoying the music on my home system and have just now realized that I haven't really tried to upgrade it for about 5 or 6 years. I am thinking of looking into a better DAC than what I have now. I am currently using a Musical Fidelity V-DAC and a Musical Fidelity V-Link 192 spdif converter. I have not kept up with technological advances over recent years, so I was wondering what it might cost me to get a noticeable improvement over my current DAC and what you all would recommend I try out. I'd be interested in suggestions up to +- $750.00.

 

Thanks for any help

Personally I’d guess that upgrading the source could bring more bang for the buck than looking at the DAC.  My first move would be to try an Innuos server in place of the Mac Mini. Its a dead easy upgrade, easy to implement and in 1 step upgrades the CPU, its power supply and the audio SW.  

I’m pretty sure you’ll be quite surprised at the affects on SQ of putting less noise into a DAC
