Can anyone tell me the differences I could expect between the Aune s6 and the Topping DX7s, I’m looking for a stand alone balanced DAC and won’t be using amp section as I already have an Aune X7S as my amplifier. I would like to get opinions on what would be best match and any other suggestions as to other Balanced DAC’s that would sound good and pair well with my Aune X7S. Thanks for any feedback!

The Aune X7s is a good amp, but it cannot take advantage of a balanced DAC since it only has a single-ended input. I think something like the Topping D50 or the Aune X1S would be more appropriate. Of course, you could use the DX7s and later purchase a fully-balanced amp as an upgrade to the X7s.

Thank you for your reply. I have not received the amp yet so did not know it only had RCA’s and UBS inputs . I had assumed “balanced amp would include balanced inputs ( my mistake!) so I’m left wondering how much difference balanced outs on aDAC will effect the overall quality of the sound any information or opinion on that would also be very much appreciated on my end , again thank you very much for your time and attention. emga

I have a X1S and thought about getting a x7s to pair as a stack with the x1s
