Thank you! but it is above my budget really
it's unlikely you'll see any 'gains' in quality with lower grade consumer stuff.

if you get a good monitor controller with a DA in it you might notice a better improvement. the Dangerous Dbox is excellent. has a great DA in it. they came out w/a new model and the previous model is now available used at very very good prices.

otherwise.. i think as people have already said.. getting a newer audio interface is likely where you'll see most improvement in your listening experience. most reasonably priced audio interfaces have great specs these days.

the DBox goes for $800-$1200 used. the new one is the Dbox+ and it's $2k. ... SwY~9gWhvp

I would check out Genelec active monitors ...
Pick the pair that suit your studio space best, and add a sub if you need one. I've had mine for 23 years now. Cost around £1400 at the time. Worth every penny.

Genelec has quite a few DSP models with digital inputs.
Can't get more highend than that.
