Hello,For the past eight months, I've been using the Sabaj A20D 2022 with great success in combination with my Adam Audio T5v speakers (using a balanced XLR connection) and my Sennheiser HD650 headphones (plugged into the front 4.4mm jack). Unfortunately, the USB port has recently stopped working, and I had to return the unit. Now, I'm in the market for a replacement that meets my main requirements: a front headphone jack and an XLR connection for my speakers.
My budget for the new DAC is up to €700. While I'm really interested in the Fiio R7 due to its input and output options, I'm hesitant about getting another Android device, as I had a negative experience with the Fiio X7 MII. Can you suggest some high-quality DACs that fulfill my needs?
I'm currently considering the Sabaj A20D 2023 and the Topping DX5. I was particularly impressed with the Topping DX70pro Sabre, but the lack of a headphone jack is a deal breaker for me.
Thank you kindly for your assistance!
