If you're looking for one with integrated DAC, HiFiMAN EF2A will do the job, and only slightly over budget.
Cheaper option without a DAC would be FiiO E9
Could always purchase the E7 later if you need DAC functionality too.
And finally a nice cheap tube option from ebay with integrated DAC
Little Dot MKII - Highly raved about and slightly over budget, no DAC functionality though.
