I've never heard a night and day difference in DACS.
Between the one in my Sonos, my Bluesound Node, and my Parasound Hint. Any differences are very subtle or not at all. Maybe I haven't spent enough money but I would hate to spend it for very little difference. My chosen combination is Bluesound for streaming using the Parasound DAC.
