Martin Logan vs. Everything
I have the older martin logan Ethos which are very close to the 13a.  They are very good speakers for details, but not as smooth as my sonus fabers.  Its more about prefrence than anything else.  Diffrent but not always better.      
Is toeing speakers a bad idea?
if your the only one listening then sure.  Otherwise ...  leave out.  Personally i think having them out closer to 180 deg. gives me more sound stage.

Unless you broke somthing, it is not your speakers.  I have a pair of older Ethos model and they sound great with the Hegel h190 and Eversolo DMP-A6 dac.   Check your source, amp and cables.   
DAC diminishing returns
What is your budget?  I would recomed you buy a DAC from a dealer with a return exchange policy and try for yourself.    
A perfect song? What are your choices?
Wow! a true artist of pain.    
Point of diminishing returns for a Network Streamers?

Pass Labs XA30.8 for Dynaudio C1 Platinum
Stop looking at specs. The Speaker efficiency is not as important as sound, Your not looking at a 30w tube amp. An amp like XA30.8 as plenty of room to support a speaker with 85db Sensitivity.
