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.

I'm kinda in the same boat.

 

Fiio E10 & this 96$ tube one from ebay look very interesting!
