The K5PRO is a compact, desktop DAC/headphone amp combo by FiiO. It features the leading AK4493 DAC chip with a wide variety of inputs and outputs to create a great value proposition.
Asgard 3 is a highly powerful, highly affordable, modular headphone amp and preamp that gives you a complete, single-box solution for all your desktop needs. It’s a re-thinking of the headphone amp that started it all (for Schiit, anyway—the original Asgard, introduced in June 2010, was our first product.) Asgard 3 features our unique Continuity™ topology that extends the benefits of Class A output, and accepts all the same modules as Jotunheim and Lyr 3.

Audio Science Review
In that regard, and in the context of a budget product that is designed reasonably well, I am going to recommend the Fiio K5 Pro.
