Oppo BDP-83SE with Benchmark DAC-1 USB?

I have owned the BDP-83SE since it was released. It has served me well and should continue to do so, at least potentially as a transport. I was thinking of changing things up a little and adding in a Benchmark DAC-1 USB to the system to bypass the Sabre Ultra ES9016 DAC's. I would then be wiring the DAC-1 into my Ayre Acoustics AX-7e amp. Has anyone attempted similar upgrades? Bad or good?

Thanks for the input!

Also, I'm considering trying

Also, I'm considering trying the Bryston BDA-1 over the Benchmark product but trying to avoid the additional $1000 bump in price. Lastly, I'm considering the latest Oppo, the BDP-95.  Sorry for posting to my own post, but was hoping to get some input before dropping down a chunk of change. Something tells me the BDA-1 will offer the greatest performance advantage, but I'd be guessing. Thanks again for anyones input. -T
