Anyone have any experience with the Grant Fidelity TubeDac 11?

This is Audio-GD's specialty. Not only do they excel with all-in-one, but their amps all thrive with planars. See NFB-29 for single ended or NFB-28 for balanced.

What happens to the Gustard? Thought you like it with your HE-500...

I had to sell it to save room. Moving into an apartment and desk space is at a premium... Ugh.

 

I still think it's a fantastic amp.

It might be only me, but I found Audio-GD stuff a bit too polite for my tastes

Well if you are looking for smaller, the A-GDs I mentioned wont work anyways since their size exceeds the H10's. Another all-in-one that comes to mind for portable is Leckerton Audio UHA- 6A MKII. I myself want this at some point.

I had the GF TubeDAC 11 for a bit.  It is a nice little all-in-one unit but the amp section wasn't fantastic.  I'd use it more for the DAC than the amp.  I don't think it would drive the HE500's the best.
