The VAC is a very good sounding amp, and if you already have NOS tubes, I would look elsewhere for the problem. The Wavac amps are better than the VAC, as your dealer suggests. The real issue is whether something else in your audio chain needs improvement before investing in a Wavac. I have no experience with your DAC, but as a rule, I do not like passive controllers. I don't know how you plan to bypass the volume control function on your ddev 3.0. If possible, borrow before you buy, and don't rule out an active tube preamp as a possibility.
