DAC suggestions

So first, I currently have a Peachtree DACiT (not even the X model...just the original).
I like it. It doesn't excel and it doesn't disappoint. It just is.
I use it for my laptop and for my Sonos Connect.

So here is what I am looking for...
New or used
Integrated headphone amp (I will be selling my Little Dot I if I can find this)
USB and at least 1 SPIDF
Prefer black but not a deal breaker
Cheap (I can get around $100 after fees and shipping for the DACiT and then around $50 for the Little Dot and when I throw some mad money into the fray, I have some wiggle room in the $200-$400 range but could go slightly higher for the right piece)

The Music Hall 25.2 and 25.3 are both going in that range on the used market but I have now been sniped on no fewer than 4 of them. But it is exactly the type of thing I am looking for.
I really want to consolidate the DAC and headphone amp to clear up some space in my office and to maybe take a couple of little steps up the food chain.

So who has some thoughts?
