I now have a C-1 with the Bill D. mod and wow, does it sound nice.  I'm in the queue for Nelion to upgrade my M-500 (in 2022 - there's a holding pattern).  When I get that back I expect my system will be good for another couple of decades.  I'm very pleased with the sound now, so when the Mk II is complete on the M-500 I expect even better sound.

I've also been reading about DACs and Streamers too - but I'm a slow adopter of gear, so I'll keep reading.  But once the M-500 is a Mk II I may breakdown and get a DAC/Streamer combo just to have that ease of access to the huge world of recordings available through a streaming service.

You will enjoy the M500t and C-1 combo. I am old school so I have cds, cassette tape, mini disc and DAT. I like the formats and recording to them. The different technologies are fun to listen to. Let us know what brand of DAC and streamer you buy…… grin

I am really enjoying the expansive sound I'm getting from the C-1/M-500 combination.  To continue to improve I have also added 2 elements to my system:  a Furman power conditioner and a BlueSound Node.  The Furman did help and made my house power very quiet, with the benefit of surge protection.  But the BlueSound Node is the real star addition and performer.  I am seriously impressed.  But, I tweaked it some more...
I also added Tidal, even though I have been listening to Amazon music and was happy with that.  I got the Premier version on trial (but I've already decided I'm keeping it), and I strongly recommend it to all of you as it is noticeably better sound.  And I'd like to also point out that Tidal offers a discount to veterans and active military, and also to first responders, that makes the Premier sound cost the same as the "normal" quality sound.  
So until I get my M-500 upgraded by Nelion next January, this is what I've got running.  I'll put my old M-400 (my first real amplifier) back into service when the M-500 is becoming all it can be.
Hope everyone is doing well.
