What can you audition for DACs that will give you an idea of what $i,000 buys ? Peachtree is good stuff no doubt but I am sure you have discovered it isn't the end all in audio by most measures. It sounds like you have a case case of acute upgraditis, it isn't usually terminal so don't worry.

Probably the easiest solution is to try to get a computer power supply
The spec on the DAC-it say 1amp - look for at least a 2amp supply - good to have more headroom
If you really wanted to crazy you could get one of these chassis mount units and build a case
9 volt supplies
I upgraded ma DAC Magic power supply and found it performed so much better.
Mechans, are you my wife?? Ok, this actually is a welcome response. I am moving in a month and promised myself I wouldn't change or tweak anything until after the dust settles because really what's the point.
I'm 60 minutes from Chicago so there is a fairly decent range of gear I could listen to if the mood struck. But replacing the DAC wasnt high on my list unless I relegate this to the second system.
Williewonka - thanks, I'm definitely going to check this out.
