Back to the DAC
Would highly recommend Rockna....not as well known, but outstanding.

Combination streamer and music server…without DAC
Rose 150b  
Streamer Upgrade
@willg1985  Up until I got the Rose, I used an external dac......and have had a variety of dacs over time....last one was a ANK 4.1LE. The 9038 dac in the Rose is impressive.      
Streamer Upgrade
Rose Hifi.....I have the 150b that recently replaced a DCs network bridge and find it to b very good.  They have a 250 version that may fit ur budget.  Good luck w ur search.  
Preamp/DAC Suggestions
Rose 150b.....it is a fantastic streamer, dac, preamp, and a used unit can be had in the 4k - 4.5k range.  Good luck.  
Too many choices for R2R DACS--opinions appreciated
Audio Note Kit Dac 4.1 or 5.1.....they are awesome.....I have been through quite a few r2r dacs including the Terminator, Orchid, and such, and find the 4.1 to be absolutely fantastic.  Just does its job, no fuss.  Good luck.

Integrated vs. Separates on a Budget
How many watts per channel do your speakers need?  If your speakers are 90db or greater, check out a Lejonklou Boazu........ Good luck.  
"warm" solid state integrated amplifier
Check out the Lejonklou website, and see if this line might meet your requirements.  I would say that it is neutral, rather than warm, but for the type of music you listen to......neutral may work best IMO.  But, ymmv.  Good luck.
