I need some purchasing advice. I'm on way way to a good 2.1 music system, but I'd like some advice on what I can do to push it into "Great" territory. I'm 75% music 25% movies and games. After reading tons of AVS and head-fi posts I am spinning. I have about 450 dollars i can drop to add something to my system and I'm just so confused. I would greatly appreciate your expertise. Thank you,

Gear I'm considering after reading post after post:
Apple TV - I've heard that the sound quality isn't great because it downsamples but is it really that noticable? only 100 bucks.
Squeezebox Touch - Better sound if i go to FLAC / worse interface?
Dedicated CD Player - H/K HD990, BDP-93, CA 650c
Schiit Bifrost, or another DAC?- I've heard that maybe i don't need a DAC because my reciever/ ps3 might handle it? this doesn't make sense to me because they are both cheaper than the bifrost or another recommended DAC.
