USB-C Dock with Satisfactory Audio DAC, Video?

I have been trying to find a multipurpose USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 dock for my iPad Pro 2020 and as far as I can tell all of the portable “docking station” devices have terrible audio fidelity and video performance/reliability. The only exceptions are the high-end desktop docks which are intended for laptops, often specifically MacBooks. I’ve so far been unable to find a portable multifunction dock (no built-in power supply) or even a minimalist audio DAC dongle that allows both USB-C charging and has passable fidelity suitable for a good set of cans. I have seen the higher end USB-C audio DACs that are all over the map price-wise but have yet to find one that allows for USB-C charging simultaneously, let alone has other ports such as HDMI, display port, USB-3.0/1, etc... Even the “high end” multiport docks have godawful analogue audio fidelity and often wretched video performance.

Has anyone else here gone on this hunt and found something suitable?
