Will the Audioengine D1 be sufficient enough to power the Mad Dogs? I couldn't find a clear answer. Thanks

Personally doubt it.

From mrspeakers:

Recommended Equipment

We do recommend a good portable or desktop amp to get the most from your Mad Dogs. You can drive the Mad Dog off your iPhone, iPad or almost any other quality portable media device (note that some Android phones don’t cut it at all). However, a quality headphone amplifier (and if possible a DAC) will improve your experience.

 

I think they need a little more amp, they are 50 ohm if im correct?

You could try less powerhungry hp's or an amplifier.

Can anyone suggest a budget DAC with optical input and amp combo that can push mad dogs?

i think the best your gonna get under 300 dollar is the shiit modi/magni combo stack or the Objective 2+ODAC.

 

Under that enough to drive most likely: e12 mont blanc by fiio (doesnt have dac) fiio e09k (doesnt have dac and has 10 ohm output impedance)

 

Wouldnt be sure about the fiio e10(dac/amp). Fiio e6(only amp) would be the cheapest option out there, it can drive quite a bit for the money you pay.
