DAC Magic is decent, but how many inputs do you need? If only one, why not Scott Nixon Chibi. That would be in line with your player and would improve it greatly.

Thanks Celtic, I had a good little read up on Scott Nixon's Chibi DAC and I am tempted especially at the price. Just may have to try one; he offers a kit for $130 which is mighty attractive. I'll have to wager you on the improvement;). If I can get a DAC for $130 (unassembled of course) that seriously outperforms the Alpha I will be astonished, that said, times has the not so subtle effect of changing everything so I can believe there has been plenty of improvement in the last ten years or so.
But what about upsampling DACs. Are they night and day different or a more sublime upgrade?
