2k to 4k Streaming DAC

I have a Anthem STR Integrated amp with floor standing Focal Aria 936 speakers. I have been using a Oppo BD-105 for streaming Tidal via XLR. I had a Pro-Ject Pre Box 2 Digital that I hooked up to the Anthem via RCA out and used a laptop to stream Tidal Masters and it sounded a whole lot better. I want to use an ipad to stream Tidal MQA files and think a new DAC with streaming would do that. I have read about Mytek and Element X.Are there others I should look at.
Buying a separate streamer and DAC opens up a ton more choices on both fronts and increases flexibility going forward as tech evolves.  Personally, I’d have to be extremely space constrained to even entertain limiting my options so severely.  My $0.02 and fwiw.  Best of luck in your search. 
I'm thinking that is what I want to do. I'm thinking about the Auralic Aries G2.1 and seeing how it first sounds through my Anthem STR Integrated amp. I can always add a DAC later. Any other streamers I should look at. 4k to 5k would be my limit. I like that I can rip all my CD to the Auralic.
