Integrated Amp recommendations?

I received the TEAC AI-101DA back in early May. It was shipped with a euro power cord. The cord has still not been replaced (mid-August now) and the right channel has started dropping out. If I wiggle the speaker terminals, the right channel comes back and is usually fine. At this point I am returning the unit. Any suggestions for a replacement? I listen to both headphones and non-powered desktop speakers, so an integrated amp (speaker outputs) with DAC is what I'm after. Any recommendations in the $200 range appreciated. TIA

thanks for the recommendations. I've got a couple of older full-sized integrated amps hanging around, but I like the smaller size of the TEAC - sits right under my monitor. I thought I paid about $200 for it on Massdrop so was thinking there would be a number of other options.
Slightly out of your budget: emotiva a-100 basx
Not a lot of options with that budget. Look at SMSL offerings would be my best advice. It's double budget but this would be my recommendation if you were willing to save... https://emotiva.com/product/ta-100/
