Are there any DACs that can go low?
PS Audio NuWave tilts up on the low end. It doesn't sound bloated. It just sounds full and rich and I enjoy it very much. For what it's worth.

More than likely, it's the control unit. I don't have a recommendation for a repairman, but Vinylengine has the service manual. This should help a technician diagnose the problem. 
Do I need a DAC?
The DAC in the Airport Express is low quality. I agree with Mesch that it's your weak link. I'm sure your system is capable of showing an improvement, but whether you can hear it is the question. I was in your shoes a few years ago and I replaced ...

Which OPPO?

It's obviously a Seas driver. I bet you'll get more information from Vasken if you call him rather than email. My friend Rpfef has talked to them a number of times and was able to get the model number for his Hawk woofer. Email is easy to ignore. ...

Looking to Improve Music Played from Apple TV
