The Poor-men's EndGame.

Not just my 6XX, also a JDS Labs Atom...and my New Khadas Tone Board. I don't care you say about USB as power. It cost me less than 400 bucks to plug this.

$16 for the custom case. But yes, I do pair HD6xx's with it!!
You can spend less than $100 USD on a case by having it 3D printed here: https://www.treatstock.com/3d-printable-models/2412322-khadas-tone-board-case

oh dear boy...I wish, I really wish I do.
You should give it a case. I was playing with my setup a lately with ifi's usb keys since my computer sends noise to my DAC (left channel picks up static noise from psu, while the right is affected by cpu load). USB is really a crappy port for music applications. Once problem is solved, sound quality improved a lot.

I think you have a very capable board for line level output. If you got the chance to test drive some small gadgets from Amazon, you should. I had recordings to compare results with/without them. https://drive.google.com/open?id=11w68IahoXNXINUVfghD-O46CxGFLNW1H I would recommend you at least cut usb power from computer and use something like Apple wall charger (which is actually pretty good). My PC passed hiss to my speakers via UD503. I noticed them as soon as I got usb cable connected. Surprisingly resolution and soundstage improved as a pleasant byproduct.

Yes, usb is crap, but it can be cleaned up a bit until we get something better.... https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-x-airist-audio-r-2r-dac/talk/2423442
Swap the Khadas Tone Board with a JDS OL Dac and that looks like my desk!

I was more impressed for the khadas dac performance....but I will have a case for it that look similar to the OL dac
