Severing the traces from the Wolfson to the rear channel jack and adding a separate, quality jack for the hi-res output with only coupling caps in the path would be the next step. Plenty of room on the bracket too!
Check out the data sheets for the Wolfson, links are in a thread I started on the same subject in DIY and another in the sources forum... haven't actually done any of this yet
