Good point about the source, I forgot to mention that in my original post. 4 out of 5 of my sources are digital, so going digital here makes the most sense.

I'd keep the DCX. It's what I use too, plus sometimes I enjoy trying to improve filter settings while listening to music during hours. Crossover settings (which determine the way in which acoustic waves sum or cancel and interact with the room once in the air) have far more impact on perceived sound than anything else.

Now that I'm used to that, speakers with fixed crossovers seem boring
