I’m currently using the FiiO K5 pro with the M1060 and the Tin T4, I’ll buy either the HD600 or HD660 s depending on which drops to a more reasonable price on my countries amazon and probably the Sundara later on.
I want to try balanced audio and/or THX technology and I’ve been looking at these options:
-Drop 789 or Monolith 887 + a yet to be selected balanced DAC, preferentially a cheaper one
-SMSL M200 + SP200 (I know the SP200 is not balanced)
-DAART Yulong Aquila II (640 USD, it’s the highest I’m willing to go)
-TOPPING DX7 Pro
These are the current options I’m considering. Which balanced DACs would you recommend for the 789 or 887? Which option do you think would get the best sound combined with the listed headphones? Do you have othe suggestions of DAC/Amp combos that would outperfor these options for a similar price?
