Sound improvement with DAC, or Amp update
Cambridge Audio CXA81 Available under a grand used. Should match well with your speakers, Check out TMR search integrated amps.  
Bands/artists you never got to see live in their heyday, but would've liked to.

SABAJ A10hListed as a headphone amp but also has a preamp output.Relay controlled volume with a remote control.Excellent volume control, nice quality.I recently bought one and absolutely love it.For under $150 buck it’s a great buy. 
Whats playing on your system today?
"Dr. Lonnie Smith (R.I.P)"Big +1 
Dynaudio Emit 10 vs. Evoke 10
Understood, but nobody has your ears and knows exactly what you like. Having owned Emit 20 once myself I recall it’s a fine speaker.the Evokes cost almost 2 x the Emits, is it worth it?,Depends 😂

Why not try out a pair from Crutchfield they give you a generous 60 day return policy.

Very small, warm and dynamic speakers
The Minx XL are rear ported but come with foam plugs if you need them.

Magnepan LRS- what amp should i consider? (sub $2,000)
I agree with Jason the Crown 1502 works well with the LRS.Sure you can decide to spend more money and be justified in that decision.However the Crown amps IMHO are good at the very least worth a try before you spend more money than you need to. 
Favorite Cowboy Junkies?
Love their version of “Sweet Jane” on the Trinity Sessions.
