Appearently this is one of the best (if not the best) implementations of an external DAC that you will find.

DIY PCM63 DAC

Even if you don't build this one - you will learn a lot just from studying its design and attention to detail - especially to jitter reduction.

Here is a thread by someone who built it:
PCM63 Tube DAC

I have most of the parts but wonder if I will ever get aroung to building it....

At the other end of the spectrum, you could start with a simple non-oversampling TDA1543 or TDA1545 DAC. There are lots of kits available for these.
