G'day friends!

Now I am certain there are plenty of others with the same dilemma! I am well aware that the DX7 Pro is yet to be measured by master Amirm but I have no doubt it will happen soon!

I'm sure either of these high-grade DAC/Amps would make all of us happy. Do you see any reasons to choose one over the other?

Secondly, I intend to purchase either the 887 Monoprice or the 789 Drop when they're available.

In case it affects the decision, I will be using them with HD650 HP as well as my Integrated amp (Rotel RA-1062)>Sonab 0a5-MkII.
https://www.carlssonplanet.com/en/speakers/produced/sonab-oa-5-type-2/ Here is a link to my fairly dated speakers if anyone is interested. Upgrading soon...

Q: What would you choose and why?
Q: Is it necessary to use balanced with either of these? (currently using 1/4 inch Jacques and RCA respectively)

I terminate cables at work very frequently so a DIY balanced isn't out of the question.

Thank you for reading! Hopefully, this clears a few things up for plenty of other people too!

Kind regards and happy listening,

E.

I am also considering both options, and also D70 or even D90.
From researching the Internet, I got the impression that Sabaj has a QC problem. And also D5 has only the black case (I prefer silver). On top of that, Sabaj ignored my question twice.
On the other hand, I don't need a headphone amp....
I guess I am inclined to get the DX7 Pro, after the testing here, of course...
