is it worth repair or stick with the PT-100 I have at the moment?

Keep in mind also the "bathtub curve of reliability." The DAC is old enough now that it may be entering its "wear out phase" where failures increase almost exponentially. Even if you get the current problem repaired, other components may also be about to fail.
