I'm looking at upgrading to a better sound system than my Astro A40s and I want to know how good this is. Make any suggestions you wish. :)

Why the Schiit stack?

It's a good budget combo I'd say, I've also seen some decent reviews on them

It is good but in your situation you don't need them.those shure do not require an amp like the magni, they are easy to drive. The DAC will be useful if you have a noticeable problem with your onboard such as hiss ,crackling, popping, etc.
