I think this would be your first venture in DIY. In this case I would suggest you to check either the CK2III or the SOHA II. They may not be the newest kids on the block but they are very good sounding headphone amps, relatively easy to build and very well supported. Many builders have build them. They are not too expensive (around 200$) so that would leave you a quite some money spare for the DAC and tools.
