Nevermind they don't run android so I can't use my tidal or spotify playlists... wtf... I have the shure 846s but just want a better dap than the shitty one on my note 8 and I don't want to have to strap anything to my phone, I want it separate and I want the best one available. The best one I can find is the onkyo DP-X1A within those conditions, but it's only 500 dollars... and it's old it's from 2016 and runs android 5.1.1. Is there anything newer and better out?

 

There's also the fiio x7 but it's made in china...

Yeah, it's called a phone. Specifically an LG V10, V20 or V30. They come with great DACs. You gotta find one used somehow.

The one I have seen most people recommend when it is in the 1k range is the Sony WM1A and I can understand why, it is absolutely amazing, but it is offline media only. Though I wouldn't really recommend getting one of them for your IEMs. The problem with most Android DAPs is that their processor is often very slow, so the best option for you might be a LG V20 or V30 


Before you buy amp and dac.  My thoughts on the M50x  Ultimate Ears Reference monitor review I might have a thing for audio...

My main Headphones and IEMs:  K612 pro, HD 25 and Ultimate Ears Reference Monitor, HD 580 with HD 600 grills

DAC and AMP: RME ADI 2 DAC

Speakers: Genelec 8040, System Audio SA205

Receiver: Denon AVR-1612

Desktop: R7 1700, GTX 1080  RX 580 8GB and other stuff

Laptop: ThinkPad P50: i7 6820HQ, M2000M. ThinkPad T420s: i7 2640M, NVS 4200M
