For a while, I have had my setup, which consists of a Denon DCM-370, an MG Head DT (with RCA 5751's + Ei El84's and a Raytheon on its way) and a pair of Sennheiser HD600's. I was wondering where to upgrade next. In my tax returns I will have about 200$, and I was thinking of getting a DAC upgrade, but then this new Cardas HD600 cable came along and really intrigued me. Will a new DAC make more of a difference than a new headphone cable?

I'll say upgrade your CD collection.
I was thinking about getting the ART I/O, but getting 8-10 CDs instead.

DACs have improved by leaps and bounds in the last few years. That will certainly make a deeper impact in your rig than cables, IMO.
