Hello everyone, I would like to finally get a DAC and headphone amplifier for my aged Beyerdynamic T90.

Since yesterday I have been searching forums and tests for different devices. First I came across the manufacturer iFi and the Zen Dac Signature V2 + Can Signature combination. This is currently available for 399 euros.

After looking around here in the forum, I found the Topping E50 + L50 particularly interesting. Here I would end up at around 350 euros. The dealer who offers the topping recommended the FiiO K5 or K7. Would this one also be good?

Which combination would you recommend or where can I get more for the money?

I only connect my T90 and the Audioengine A2+, BT is not important to me as I have a NAD AVR in the room that I can stream to. I currently use Tidal as it is very cheap. MQA... i know. Qobuz is the way to go.

I can personally recommend the Sabaj A10d (2022). There are sometimes deals available.
