Are there any audiophiles here who can steer me in the right direction? Any help and recommendations are welcome.

I'm looking for EXCELLENT instrument separation, Good imaging and WIDE soundstage. Obviously I listen to a lot of Pearl Jam. I also listen to a lot of Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty, Biffy Clyro, Chris Cornell, Beastie Boys, Tribe Called Quest, Classic Rock, etc. 

I think I am just trying to pick between the Campfire Andromeda 2020 vs the Thieaudio Monarch at this point, but I could use an expert opinion. I've read a lot about Moondrop S8; Moondrop Blessing 2 Dusk; DUNU SA6; fiio fh7s, the sony ier-m9... They all seem appealing. I'm ok spending more to get the better sound.

I ordered a new 2020 Hiby R6. I have a pono and a fiio M6 so not sure if this is an upgrade, but hopefully. I don't have an additional amp so any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.
