Looking for a DAC under $150 for my AudioEngine A5+ speakers currently plugged into my desktop stock onboard sound card which is poop! My purpose is playing FLAC music or high quality audio in general. Thank You! 

☺️🙏🏼

If you have the wireless version of the speakers they have a built in DAC that would likely be better than the computer's sound card.  If not, you can make them wireless by buying a Raspberry Pi/Allo Boss DAC player combo for just over $100.  It supports all high resolution formats too.  I use that in my main system and it sounds better than it has any right to.  You can buy it pre-configured with one of the RPi music players already installed.  Plug it in, connect to your wifi, and you're good to go, or you can stay wired too.

 

You don't say how you are playing music, whether you're on a PC or Mac, but there are lots of options for playback and streaming once you have this.  You really don't need the computer anymore unless the music is on your hard drive.  I use my Mac as the server with Tidal and Qobuz, and stream via UPnP to the RPi up to 24/384.  And really, it just plays everything.
