Any DAC can be part of a DAC/Amplifier setup for your Q701 headphones.
What budget did you have in mind?

Currently using either the FiiO E17/E9K combo or the FiiO E10/Bravo Ocean combo depending on the mood then tongue.gif

Personally I would use the Epiphany Acoustics EHP-O2D but this guy used the Yulong D100 and wrote a pretty good review too http://forum.head-room.co.uk/topic/28-akg-q701-review/
