Hey guys,

I'm a new Head-Fi(er) here, and I recently purchased a pair of Grado RS1i. I mainly listen to FLAC files via my computer.  


I also have a pair of Swan M60W 5.1 Surround Speakers (info and specs here: 


My current setup is this soundcard:


Plus this Creative Decoder: (I think its out of print now).


Here is my dilemma:


I'm afraid of my equipment going kaput soon (the decoder is super hard to find) and I want to be able to drive both of them. Since I have surround sound speakers I can't figure out what to buy as a DAC/AMP combo. Any suggestions? Price range under 2k. 


Thanks so much,
