Actually, I always thought that the Dynalo (Gilmore Lite) was more of a thing for Sennheiser headphones that really benefit from a clean solid state.
For a portable amp, I can't recommend much at the moment as I'm being swept away by my SOHA to places where my portables can't take me
If you don't NEED a portable setup, you'll benefit greatly from a desktop amp and there are quite a few in your $250 price range.
SOHA and Millet Hybrid would be great Tube Hybrid amps that should work very well with Grados. Solid state, I love my PPAv2 and it was pretty nice with my MS-2, but perhaps a MOSFET buffered amp might be nicer to get a little more warmth. Check out an M3 if you see one in the for-sale forum.
