Another option has just appeared.
In Denmark I can buy an almost new Topping DX7 for 335 EUR.

Is that an overkill or a great bargain?

Which version of the DX7? How old?

Also, slow down, listen to the kit you have and enjoy something. Buying isnt listening and enjoying music.

It is not the "+" version.



But I just want to buy the "right" setup.
And I am not in a hurry.

If I recall correctly that model has relatively high output impedance and could impact how some headphones sound. But you have an e50/L50 stack coming dont you. I would try those with UAPP with EQ on your phone.

Yes, but the E50/L50 is overkill. Right?
I am a little surprised that you do not recommend the DX3 Pro+ for my setup.

You might have your reasons.

I am curious why choosing K5 over Topping G5?
Topping G5 is more powerful.

And if this device is for both desktop and transportable.

Qudelix 5K only = 129 € for the total setup is what StaticV3 is trying to tell you.
It will also give you EQ possibities, have enough power and can be used as desktop as well (via USB) and can be used portable.
You will be lacking 2 separate boxes, display, power supplies. Your wallet will thank you.
You may want to buy a balanced cable for the Sundara (Pentaconn 2.5mm TRRS).
The Qudelix will be enough unless you want to remove the fillings from your teeth.
Hi,

I know absolute nothing og Hifi-cables.
Sorry.

Can you please send a link to the cable, you are mentioning?
That would be a great help to me.

Thank you.

Use the headphone with the current cable.
When you need to go any louder then start shopping for a cable with the 2.5mm balanced plug.

Sundara is 3.5mm TRS where T and S are connected.
The 5k is 2.5mm TRRS

2.5 TO 2x3.5

Try the Sundara on the 3.5 output first. You may not need the balanced output.
