What is the make and model of the CD player? Going CD player > DAC > Head amp, sounds like a good idea.
 Using a digital output (optical/coaxial/USB) from the computer should remove any noise (crackling), that might be generated from the computer. My gut says the issue with the noise is caused from the SMSL Sanskirt.Try removing the SMSL and plug the Ly2  straight into the motherboard's Front Speaker/Headphone jack.Set the on-board audio to 2-channel Speaker output, and turn the computer's volume controls to 75% or higher (make sure the volume on the Lyr 2 is set way low or...
 My two cents is for true headphone surround sound, you need to start off with a 6-channel (5.1) or 8-channel (7.1) source and convert it into 2-channel headphone surround sound sound.Chances are a PC will normally only feed 2-channel of PCM (un-compressed) digital audio to USB adapter.If you had a separate program on the PC, that would already do the convention, before the signal is sent thru USB, then you might get something like true headphone surround sound. But I'm...
 Do not know much about the Lyr 2, but I'm sure it's a good headphone amplifier. Might try ready up and asking about the Lyr2 on this thread.http://www.head-fi.org/t/721542/new-schiit-lyr-2-impressions
Should be able to hook the T7 between the turntable and the M-Audio studio monitor. Assuming your M-Audio comes with a un-balanced input.
Might find some used Beyerdynamic T70 250-Ohm headphones (great clarity), with in your budget. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beyerdynamic-T70-Headphone-/232046032966?hash=item3607057846:g:yU0AAOSwU-pXrSmY http://www.ebay.com/itm/361283281082?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
 Currently using my Beyerdynamic T90 and Soundmagic HP200 headphones, with the 336SE.Your Ti-D card should be a better DAC, then my Xonar DS card, as a DAC.And so far I'm liking the sound. Might also check out this thread, for amps for sale on Head-Fi.http://www.head-fi.org/f/6551/amplification-for-sale-trade
 My Darkvoice 336SE arrived a few weeks back, so far I'm liking it.And it's using a $40 sound card (Xonar DS)and sound might get better once I starting using my Audio-GD NFB-15's duel WM8741 DAC chips, to provide the DAC function.
Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000), they are the HyperX Cloud II with out the built in mic or the "fake" 7.1 surround sound USB adapter. Or just get the HyperX Cloud I, comes with the mic, but no USB sound card.   Asus Xonar DG sound card ($20), would be better then the USB sound card the HyperX Cloud II comes with.   The Sony MDR-7506 are monitor headphones, kind of a boring sound, more for analyzing audio, then audio enjoyment.   I own the Gemini HSR-1000 and I...
 Hopefully you disabled the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS, when you installed the Ti-HD (Titanium-HD) sound card.The Ti-HD makes a fairly good DAC and it's headphone jack can easily drive the 150-Ohm Sennheiser HD700 headphones.But, I would say to buy a headphone amplifier and connect it to the Ti-HD's RCA (line-output) jacks. I myself just bought a Darkvoice 336 tube headphone amplifier and I'm really enjoying...
