    DAC/AMP for Final B3

    I'm looking for a portable DAC/AMP with a mobile streaming application for the Final B3. I currently own a Fiio m7 and am considering the Chord mojo1, Earmen tr-amp, and ifi hip zen. Bluetooth and wireless are unnecessary for me. Could you please recommend a DAC/AMP that improves sound quality?

    I am using a portable decoding amp without MQA decoding function, and I recently discovered that this amp has an MQA decoding version. But I saw the news on YouTube which said that the MQA is a scam.
