Well DX50 is only $250 shipped from iBasso and it is one of the best bang-for the buck products I bought so far. It can drive a lot of headphones well and although the background is less dark compared to A&K, I love the transparent sound out of the iBasso. You could do a lot worse with the terrible UI of Fiio's X3.

Until I got the chance to review the X5 tour unit, I would have agreed that my DX50 has the best bang for the buck. However now, i can hardly listen to my DX50 any more knowing how good my headphones should sound. I should point out that your preferred signature and synergy with your headphones is the most important things to consider. If you are interested, my review compares the X5 to the DX50 with various headphone pairings:
