I need some advice on a good, small and portable DAP preferably within the budget of being under $200.Most of my music is in flac format. I dont feel like i need any wireless or streaming features since all of my music is on several micro sd cards.
I appreciate you taking your time to read this and for any advice,
Thanks :)

LG V series phones with USB Audio Player Pro- You will not find a dap that sounds better anywhere near the price you can snag a used V for. Takes SD cards and plays flac.

FiiO X3 MK III, as well as being portable, it can be used as an external DAC/amp, with a computer.

Shanling M2S has been one of my FAVORITES for a long time. Very easy to use single handed and sufficiently powerful

Kinda out of production now but a few are still online for a little less than what your looking for.
