Take a look at the Schiit line. Quite affordable and well made.

The headphones are cheap to begin with, so if you take into account that they are exactly the same as a MSRP $500 model it should be pretty normal. I'd say you should spend as much as you're comfortable with taking into consideration that there's diminishing returns the higher up you go. I have some Sony MDR's that cost me like $100 on a bargain bin, and so far I've spent over 500 on equipment for them. And I don't regret a cent. Also, those Schiit magicians punch way above their weight. They're truly nice amps.

Which amp/dac combo should I get? Budget of 200$ max. Should I opt for the Magni Modi 3, Fulla 2 or the O2 Odac?

Hey dude, I have no idea on how the O2 sounds so i can't comment on it. But i would recommend the stack over thefulla . It's more versatile in the headphones you can drive, and you can really tell the difference in sound between them. The fulla is incredible as a mobile option, but for your home you can't go wrong with the stack.

The O2 sounds.... Analytic. It doesn't have a sound signature like other amps. I'm undecided whether is that a good thing or not.

I have never really liked the analytic sound signature, as I find it too tiring for my tastes. I found the Vali 2 amp to be more to my liking. I guess its just a very personal preference.

I haven't tried a tube amp before, so I can't say much about that. I think for the O2, it will take some time for me to get used to it.
