I'm as prone to upgraditis as most here. But there's no more audible change obtainable than changing speakers and tackling room problems such as first reflections and reverb times control...
This said, my change from a Yamaha RX-V2700 AVR to a Emotiva UMC-1 + XPR-5 combo made a big change anyway. Especially the rather unefficient B&W CMC center benefitted. And no, my last of the run UMC-1 (bought for the upgrade card) didn't cause any problems at all after about 10 months of daily use!
