For starters you should think about the FX-audio Dacx6. Very cheap with high quality for a starter set-up!

The Schiit Magni 3 is much more powerful and higher quality, and is the same price as the JDS Labs Atom.

The magni may be more powerful, but the jds atom is much better in things like distortion and noise. And while it's not to say that the magni is "solid" as it's a metal chassis, the atom isn't "cheaply built" with the plastic either. It may look cheap, but owning it, I can say it feels pretty durable regardless.

Completely agreed. And there is no reason to pretty much ever need more power than the atom. So magni should be out of the question. Especially for the 6XX.

Do you need a seperate DAC or does the Atom Amp include one?

The Atom is an amp only, so you will need a seperate dac. I personally suggest the topping d10, d30, or khadas tone board as a starter pack with the Atom, but of course, depending on things like budget, you can always get an amp only and get a discrete dac in the future.
