O2 is a great amp, but Atom is cheaper, more powerful and seems to measure even better than O2, so my vote goes to Atom.

If you can DIY a case for Khadas then it would be better than SDAC, if not...DAC-1 from MarchAudio could be a better choice. However, SDAC measures fine, so it’s really your choice here. :)

Thanks for the input. I would do diy things like bottlehead crack and like you said, the khadas, however, I don't have the proper equipment for a diy project unfortunately. But if I ever do in the future, I'll keep the khadas in mind.

You don't actually need a DIY project, the bare board works fine. It's if you want a case for use.

This is my re-post from another thread on DACs and gaming but since I think its relevant to the topic at hand I'll give my two cents.

I've been contemplating what kind of headset I was going to purchase for gaming and I do like to listen to audio files as well so I went with the

I have to admit for me it was a great combination and I also decided on the new

the sound quality in Battlefield 5 and Call of Duty BO4 is intense I hear footsteps for days, and I'm sure there's a lot of recommendations out there but I carefully looked at other reviews and each one of these components had great reviews. listening to high-quality audio is ten times better than the experience I was getting with my Logitec G933 no comparison.
