That would be a Show-off. This would do for passing on the message
For things that demand better pics, there would be others that follow - 2012 or 2013 (at least I hope so).

And to be honest, I do not think you need to upgrade your DAC, the Xonar STx has a good dac, just use the line out to feed the Burson's and that should be a very neutral setup.
I initially chased after Matrix M Stage and others. After terribly confusing myself about all the budget offerings, decided to step up and get the Bursons instead.
I have not used STX or MSII much with the headphone setup. STX did get good use with my now gone Speaker setup though, but not MSII. I would use them for a while and figure out which one to keep. But, when I upgrade, I won't be looking at budget options. Had too many (uDAC-1, uDAC-2, Maverick D1) and not satisfied with any of them that much.
