I have good news for you, though it may not be what you want to hear.
In the last 5-10 years DACs have improved a huge amount. I started a thread on this, but the basic idea is that in particular Redbook playback is so good now that DSD and high resolution playback no longer make economic sense.
So, yes, get a great new DAC, but no, don't worry about high resolution so much.
