Have you considered the new Bel Canto's (2.5 and 3.5)? I am a dealer for these products and have been extremely impressed with how they sound. The Dac2.5 should do a great job for you and falls under the amount you are looking to spend ($1995).
Weiss DAC2 or Minerva (both have identical internals) would be worth considering if you have a Firewire output from computer. Weiss DAC2 is $3000 new. Either DAC2 or Minerva used should be within your price range. 6moons review of Weiss compares it to Wyred4Sound DAC2
I second Daverz comment regarding the Neko Audio D100. The Wyred4Sound also looks impressive but some have described the ESS Sabre as being too sterile. I haven't heard the W4S but the Neko is extremely musical.
I am streaming lossless files using an Apple TV2 into the Hegel. Fantastic sound. The Hegel is a great value and it's performance is superior. It has a warm and full sound, but remains crystal clear throughout the frequency range.
