Specifically, I have a Tascam D3000 that I’d like to keep in my system while at the same time upgrading from my current preamp/DAC. Does such a beast exist?

There are quite a few options but what is your present unit and what is your budget?
I also use an amp with pre out to my JVC 3 Head cassette deck.
The beast that springs to mind at a similar price point to the Tascan D3000 is the miniDSP SHD

The issue is that I don’t believe it is roon ready although it is in the certification process as far as I know. There are periodic posts on the forum so there might be a recent update.
I’ve been eyeballing the NAD 658 so in the $1000-$1600 ballpark.
