Hello, im looking for a cheap dac+amp combo to power my Superlux HD-681 EVO (modified).
 
I was thinking of Fiio E10 but as it's no longer available, I have to look for something else.
 
I know these are not excellent but im just looking for something better than motherboard audio. 
I think I can do some basic soldering too if needed. But I still want a ready packet with case and all.
 
These are the ones im most interested of 
 
SMSL SD-793II http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMSL-SD-793II-DAC-DIR9001-PCM1793-OPA2134-Coax-Optical-Input-Headphone-Amp-B-/251250687473?pt=US_Home_Audio_Amplifiers_Preamps&hash=item3a7fb53df1
 
HA INFO U2PLUSV2 http://www.ebay.com/itm/HA-INFO-U2PLUSV2-AD1852-USB-Sound-Card-3-5mm-Headphone-Amplifier-SPDIF-USB-DAC-/380477285512?pt=US_Pro_Audio_Amplifiers&hash=item589636a488
 
Both come with PSU and are pretty popular.
 
Which one is better? And if you have some other choices in the <60eur category, pls tell me but I have done pretty good research.

Yes I noticed and it's a real problem as I don't have SPDIF in my old computer where im planning to use it. But still, I can buy extension card later. So I bought the SMSL. It seems to be much more popular now, so I assume it's better (and also looks better). Also is cheaper. And here is my secret link to get it even cheaper
