@Tommyuk1977 the L30II can theoretically drive the DT770 Pro 250Ω to about 124dB SPL Peak and the 80Ω to 128dB SPL.
In practice, you will first destroy your ears, then you will destroy the DT770, and then you will run out of volume on the Amp.

Could you specify your DAC and preamp gain?
For HD650 I use medium gain, pot is about 1-2 o'clock (Topping E30 2,1V in, preamp gain -5,9dB).
We've discussed this briefly here. You can look it up. I don't use a separate DAC. I connect the amp either to the headphone out, or line out on my audio interface. I also tested headphone out on my laptop once or twice.
