Hello everyone , I have a 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL. I’ve upgraded my Jeep’s radio to a Stinger Heigh 10 “ with a 10” screen. I have K2 Power Focal ES165K 6 1/2 “ components up front and Alpine R components ( very disappointing sound) in the rear. I have a JL Audio 10W3 subwoofer in the cargo area. I have an Alpine X-A 70F 4 channel amp running the components . A separate JL Audio XD600/1 is running the sub. I’m using my iPhone 13 Pro Max using Tidal . The sound isn’t quite doing it for me. My question is should I buy a portable DAP? If so which one ? Should I buy the new Helix Mini DSP MK ? Or purchase an amp , dsp combo ? My goal is to listen to high res music in my car and I want it to sound phenomenal . I’ve tried using my ifi X DSD DAC and it’s a great improvement but a pain to use. Which route should I go ? Btw… my Stinger head unit has optical out. Thank you everyone

You need the DSP. Helix, Audison, JL etc, kinda doesnt matter as long as it has the required I/O for your system. Even more importantly, you need someone that can tune it. Find the tuner first, then buy the DSP that they are comfortable tuning with.
