Hello and welcome!

 

What kind of sound you like, and which headphone model's you have? 

 

There are some factors that you must consider.

I think most people would agree that the Xonar is a better class of dac/headphone amp than the E10.

Unless you need the portability of the E17, once you push up to that budget range of it combined with the E09K, I'd consider a Schiit Audio Modi paired with either a Magni or Vali.

DAC isn't the most meaningful component when you're talking 'bout sound. Just look a setup which can drive your headphones well (active speakers are quite easy to drive for any DAC).
