Entry level MQA dac

I’d like to try full unfolding of MQA but only have a limited budget of £200 or so. Could you recommend a way forward please?

The obvious choice would be the Audioquest Dragonfly Red, assuming you can provide unfolded material to it.
I have one and it’s pretty decent but still worth it’s cost.

The Meridian Explorer2 is £99 at most UK outlets. Full unfolding up to 192k. But if you already have a decent DAC, the first unfold gets you most of the way there.
