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

RE: Spending $$$$ on digital.

any DAC, especially the high-priced ones depreciate 50% + when you open the box. The sweet spot is $1000-1500. I am happy with my Grace 920 (Thanks to John Marks) because it doubles as my preamp and I got it from Massdrop in that price range new. Some people swear by the earliest multibit DACs. PS audio is always coming out with something new under $1K in the hopes that their higher priced technology will trickle down... and would make even more sense used.
In my second system, my Furutech ADC GT40 also doubles as a phono preamp and sounds good in THAT system. t can be picked up used for less than $350.
