New DAC or New Streamer or New Streamer/DAC

Curious what people would think is the biggest bang for the buck?

1)  Auralic Aries G1 Streamer with current Pass Labs D1 DAC (Aries would replace current Auralic Aries mini)
2)  Lumin T2
3)  Auralic Aries mini (I have this now) and Denafrips Terminator

All thoughts welcome.  Thanks

Srajan Ebaen of 6Moons just re-confirmed (in his review of the New DSP Board for the Terminator) that the Terminator is the [italics / bolded] DAC to beat in the Euro 10K and under price range. It replaced his Aqua Formula DAC (original version). 

Going with the Terminator, or equivalent DAC, allows for tremendous flexibility in streamer/server choice and streamer/server advances (i.e. future proofing), IRRESPECTIVE of the superior performance this route also offers.
