Congrats on making that jump!
I know from first hand experience that you have a fabulous sounding combo. I've since upgraded to the A75.
Maybe your next step might be a DP750 to replace the 550

What’s the A75 sound like? Is that big a difference to the A70?

The A75 is basically a stereo version of the A250 mono's.
It sounds wonderful and makes beautiful music... But so did the A70.
It's not a night and day difference but a refinement. A fine tuning giving you more of everything the A70 had.
Although there are very audible and pleasing differences I could have easily lived with the A70 for a very long time.

Thanks. I found that the preamp series make far more difference and improvements than moving up the power amp

well well, my Accuphase journey just started.
I replaced my A-S3000 (the most expensive and biggest Yamaha amplifier) by a E-270 (the less expensive and smallest Accuphase)!
But this is just a first step. Next year (and this is soon...) I plan to upgrade, when the E-480 becomes available, I will compare this new machine with the E-650 and with the combinations around a C-2150...

the 480 arrived in France, as did the 2150.
Nothing yet in Germany.
So far from the other forums.

Pretty new to Accuphase and not much of journey so far.

Since I began my audiophile journey I have tried various components in a relatively short time. Have to say it was a very interesting exercise to sit down and work through the progression. Apologies as it takes a while to get to the Accuphase components.

Yamaha receiver -> Elektra 7 Channel Power Amp -> Dynaudio Focus 380
Yamaha receiver -> Parasound P5 -> Elektra 7 Channel Power Amp -> Dynaudio Focus 380
NAD M51 -> Parasound P5 -> Elektra 7 Channel Power Amp -> Dynaudio Focus 380
NAD M51 -> Parasound P5 -> Parasound A21 -> Dynaudio Focus 380
Cambridge Audio Azure 851D -> Parasound P5 -> Parasound A21 -> Dynaudio Focus 380
Cambridge Audio Azure 851D -> Parasound P5 -> Parasound A21 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4
PS Audio DirectStream Junior -> Parasound P5 -> Parasound A21 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4
PS Audio DirectStream Junior -> Parasound JC2 -> Parasound A21 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4
PS Audio DirectStream Junior -> Parasound JC2 -> Parasound A21 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4
PS Audio DirectStream Junior -> Accuphase E-470 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4
Accuphase DAC-50 -> Accuphase E-470 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4
Accuphase DC-901 -> Accuphase E-470 -> Dynaudio Contour S5.4

My move into the Accuphase realm came quite by accident. I was looking for an integrated Amp and went to audition some gear including Luxman 509X, Pass Labs INT-250, Vitus R-100 and an AudiaFlight integrated. It just so happened that at one of auditions the E-470 was present so I decided to give it a go. Loved the sound instantly and that is where it all began for me.

Pretty much addicted to the Accuphase sound now and constantly researching Accuphase. Would love to try a Class A Power Amp, A-70/75 for example as I have never had Class A gear in my system.

Looks like you prefer the sound of the DAC 50 over the PS Audio?

The DAC-50 and the DSJ were running in parallel. The DSJ gave me a little more bass and was possibly a little smoother. I liked both. Still have DAC-50. The DC-901 however turned my listening sessions into a completely different experience.
To my ears at least there was no comparison with any of my prior sources.
