What do you consider reasonable? What type of headphones? How portable?

The NAD D1050 in the classifieds is a nice unit for the price.  For similar money, the AudioGD R2R-11 has a massively loyal following.  Although I think would choose the NAD in that bracket.

I'm looking for a DAC/AMP that will work ewith my earphones which has an Impedance of 42Ohms.
I'm really new to the tech side of audio and listen to music all day at work so thought to myself i might as well start investing some
knowledge and cash to listening to music.
Any advice would be appreciated.
