Hello, I'm a real beginner to all audiophilic things and I'm in the process of purchasing my first 'real' headphone setup. I'm ready to spend about 300 € (about $430) and possibly a bit more. As I said, I'm a total newbie, and though I know a bit about this stuff, I don't really know what the hell I'm doing.
I listen to a very wide range of musical genres as well as watch movies, mostly on my PC, preferably in lossless formats and DVDs, so I'm looking for a neutral sounding, affordable quality setup. I've read a bit about DACs, amps and headphones and related things, but I'd like some tips and advice from more experienced people. What kind of headphones do I need? What's the meaning of the DAC and the amp, and what pieces should I use?
Here's some of the equipment I've been looking at:

Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1
Thanks in advance for any of your kind help and suggestions.
