Newbie here. Thanks in advance for your advice
For this, is JDS Labs Atom or Monolith Liquid Spark preferred?
And is there a recommended (budget) DAC ?
So, regarding the monolith spark vs jds atom, that's up to you. The spark is more of a fun amp and adds coloration to the sound. The atom is a simple amp with no coloration and very little distortion. It's main job is to provide power to power hungry headphones like the 6xx. I personally prefer the Atom cause I don't want any sort of coloration in my sound.
As for dacs, topping D10, D30, Khadas tone board, those are some of the best options for under $100. Keep in mind though, the tone board is just a bare pcb, no case.
