Grace 905 upgrade to Metric Halo LIO8?

I am using the LIO 8 for inputs as well as DA and monitoring in my system. I can't help but think there would be a better DA converter for playback than the LIO 8. I think it's a great box but the DA may not be at the same level as the better sounding DA converters out there and I'm thinking the better I can hear my mix the better mix I can do (at least for me that's the way it is)

Just wondering if by chance anyone has upgraded their monitoring chain with the LIO 8 to a better DA and what they thought?

I'd think it's incredibly unlikely the metric halo is the weak link in your monitoring chain. Upgrading conversion seems to be a really popular thing to want to do, but when you've got quality like this already, is there really nothing else that needs improvement?

a HUGE upgrade for your monitor chain would be this:

But it's also almost as much as the LIO8....
