What are some of your favorite portable DACs?

I'm currently using a Topping D50 with a Jotunheim headphone amp. So far, I like it.

The sound through headphones is very transparent and very quiet.

My fav Portable dac is my whatever smartphone I own at the moment. Had very good results with all Samsung phones and currently own S8 and it's probably best one so far from an audio standpoint.
I don't abuse myself by trying to use 300ohm headphones on the go, so no need for amp

Awesome. I've noticed my iPhone has an excellent DAC built-in. No need for external DACs for a smartphone these days.

I mainly use my headphone amp and portable DAC with my PC.

I guess I just like electronic toys to play with. :)

On the pc, i switched from AudioEngine D1 to Behringer UMC404HD.
I like the balanced connection to my monitors and a separate headphones volume control. D1 also struggled with HD audio, where Behringer does not. But to be fair, it's drivers installation suck major a$$
