Does anyone know why the Topping D50s DAC is more expensive than the DX3 Pro+? The specs are identical, but the DX3Pro+ has a headphone amp and power source. I have the DX3Pro+, but need another DAC with LDAC for another system and won’t need the amp section. Does the D50s sound better?

2019 Vs 2022. Three years apart during Topping managed to get (even) more and more competitive.

Nope. Measurements tell us that both would sound absolutely the same.

Yes I had the d50s and it had really nice fit and finish, but didn't sound better than any other DAC I've had in that sinad range. I even tried with a power bank, but it didn't have anything exceptional going for it soundwise.
