Choice for new DAC: Schiit Gungir Multibit vs. Topping D90 MQA

My beloved almost 6 year old Cary DAC-100t S/PDIF output board is apparently bad so rather than shipping it back and a large repair fee I'm considering a new DAC. Two top contenders are those in the subject line which were chosen based on reviews here and a few elsewhere.

==> I'd love your input regarding my biggest concern which is that I'm a mostly tube and analog guy who hates hard edgy digital sound. The Gungir has gotten some rave reviews for fluid and organic sound, i.e., exactly what I'm looking for. Do you think it truly has that?

I'm currently into hi-rez streaming using a Bluesound Node 2i and Qobuz as the service although I've also tried Amazon and Tidal.

I've added the Topping as a contender because Abe mentitoned them in another thread. But I've also read a post or two which mentioned that the D90 has an overly detailed-oriented sound. Which is not what I want.
