Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Spending $$$$ on digital.

I own an ifi nano iDSD DAC that I use with my computer for mastering my DSD recordings of vinyl LPs. It's a great little DAC for that purpose or for portable use. However, it doesn't sound nearly as good as my $1300 Oppo BDP-105D when I compared both in my main stereo system. My $1300 Oppo sounds much better and is much more versatile for my main audio/video system. The Oppo can function as an external DAC for music streaming but it also accepts USB hard drives and flash drives directly so you really don't need an additional digital streamer.

The ifi nano iDSD DAC is quite nice for $200, though! However, it sounds like $200 compared to a more expensive DAC.
