I previously had an AK70 and some second rate Pioneer digital audio player but sold them 2-3 years back.

Now looking to get a new portable DAP (possibly Astell and Kern SR15), but one thing holding me back is that I no longer have a laptop/PC - just an iPad Pro.

Although I could use a device with streaming over WiFi (e.g. Tidal Masters), I would like to be able to buy high quality albums off sites like Qobuz (still have a few from a couple of years back).

So...
1) is it possible to get/use a portable digital audio player which could be used without a laptop/PC?
2) if so, which ones are good?

Get android based DAP and install Qobuz in them. Cayin N6 II should be a good start.

Or go straight to AK SP2000, they don't totally open their Android OS, but they ready to be installed with Qobuz app.
