Hi guys, I'm in a bit of a dilemma here, hoping to get some clarity. Being new to the audio world, I got myself a HD 598SR to explore.

Will a DAC definitely make my audio better than what I'm using on my Maximus board's audio?

Like one of the previous poster, I'd like to switch between speakers/headphones conveniently. So a Audioengine D1 fits the bill. However, is there anything cheaper than that?

That's way above my budget but thanks. Is there anything cheaper in the range of a E10k or a fulla2?

Some DACs allow you to use it as power bank to charge the phone but when you are charging it, you can't connect it as usb dac.

Ive found the solution...I use Remax USB Hub + OTG..bought at kedai ustad uptown kota damansara for rm18 only...it works like a charm! 😀👍 but theres a trick to make it work..u need to power and plug the charger and the DAC into the hub 1st, then connect the micro usb cable from the hub the phone..then wallah! I can power my dac and charge the phone at the same time! Problem solved

The key is to follow the steps i just mentioned..if not, it will not work simultaneously..

the k3 is great for its price, but if you're looking at a higher price bracket. I am sure there's more.

Try smsl ad18. Never used it but it could be a good all-in-one solution.
