Musical Fidelity Tri Vista DAC, Should I upgrade?

Hi there, I have a Musical Fidelity Tri Vista DAC that has $1000 of mods from SF stereo. It is a great unit but I cant help but think its getting a little old.

Are there any great DAC's that will smoke mine that are newer and around 1500-2000 on Agon? Oh I dont listen to Hi-Rez Audio (There isnt much yet in what I'm looking for) Just standard Redbook

Thanks a million

Get yourself a Modright modded Sony 5400ES or Oppo 95 it will blow you away on redbook. I also own the MF Trivista with the CEC Model 1 transport and like the Modright better.
That's what we do around here.
Its great advice, I forgot to mention hwever all my music is on my computer in AIFF

Thanks Yall
Your DAC has been modified so it`s hard to compare. The standard DAC is under appreciated IMO.I`ve heard it with the PS Audio PWT and the sound was quite good, natural and without digititis. You might prefer something else in the 1,500-2,000 price range, but I don`t feel it will be blown away. With 1K worth of mods it could be better than anything else in that price range. A beefed up power supply, better caps etc. does wonders if done correctly.
The Modwright Sony mentioned by jwm is excellent but is`nt in your stated price range 1.5-2K.
Stringreen: I have a question about your post. Are you sarcastically saying, "That's what we do around here" in the sense that the VERY first post that responded to the OP's question wasn't "on topic". If so, I agree whole heatedly.

Annoyed in Minneapolis,
By the way systembuilder you can have Dan at Modright add a digital input to the modded Sony and all you need is a USB to SPDIF adaptor to work with down loaded files from the internet.
I was actually commenting on the original poster's seems everyone on these pages is looking for that piece of the puzzle that will make it all right. I wasn't trying to be snide...just what we all do around here. English is not a very precise language...perhaps we should all speak German.

Isnt that the reason for forums? So you can ask a educated Question and recieve an honest answer from people who actually have experience with their products?

You ever notice just how many tube amp designs there are let alone speakers.

Dude were all trying to put together a puzzle thats what an online community or any community is all about. I'm still learning like everyone else and I'm not ashamed to admit it!
You can't expect a credible answer to your your original question from those who have not heard your Musical Fidelity Tri Vista DAC that has $1000 of mods from SF stereo.
