You ever look into the FX Audio DAC X6? It's better than the M7 for way less money. However if you like SMSL than by all means get the M7. Your money

FYI you can get Schiit stuff quite easily in the UK from here:
https://schiit.eu.com/

I have used them before when they were on electromod.co.uk. Still owned by these guys but have a dedicated site now.

I can't really comment on how good the Schiit stuff is because it's the only headphone dac/amp I've used, so nothing to compare against. However to me, the sound and build quality feel great, also no need for terrible soundcard drivers.

You can connect the amp directly to a sound card or any other 3.5mm jack. You just use Y cables. I would get a separate DAC personally.

Is supposed to be amazing.

DAC

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AudioQuest-...uest+dragonfly

Y cable I use. Very nice, thick and good quality for a good price.

Into whatever amp you desire. You can then collect amps if you wish, and keep the DAC in place of a sound card
