My mx3 was sending a really loud popping sound out all channels when entering low power mode so I returned as defective. I'm going to give the ad18 a shot

The AD18 has a more powerful speaker AMP 80W per channel vs 38W per channel. The MX3 is more powerful on paper, but either should deliver enough power for most use cases.
The MX3 has a more powerful headphone AMP 257mW @32ohms vs 52mW @ 32ohms, but you stated this dosen't really matter to you.
One other consideration that may or may not matter to you is the AD18 has BT w/ AptX while the MX3 BT does not.
I can't speak to the DAC or audio performance as I've only used the AD18 (but might get a MX3 to compare).
