|High Quality dac with network streamer saves $1,000s|
As very long time Linux user I'm not sure software upsampling is really what you want. ;)
|What speaker do you passionately want to demo?|
Tune Tots for my fifth wheel. ;) The LS50s are pretty good, some Wilson would be nice though.
|What is the reason for this? (Digital vs Vinyl Question)|
This is the game I play. My digital recently became obviously better than my analog. So my Rega P3's AT MC cartridge now feeds a Bob's Device's SUT, which feeds my Musical Fidelity V90, and the analog caught up right there. I have in progress the ...

|What is the most important component to consider while building a new system?|
The source. That is what matters.
|Which Tube Phono Pre Amo?|
I'm building a Sunvalley SV-EQ1616D because its one of two that Bob at Bob's Devices likes. I bought one of his SUTs and that by itself was a big step up for my MC cartridge.

I was very pleased with my Denafrips Ares II. But when I added a network bridge using a Pi2AES, it took it to another place. Quiet wonderful and the very thing you are looking for. ;)
