Default Newzild's $200 Challenge - your best bang for the bucks

We all want the best player, the best amp, the best headphones or earphones - but not all of us are millionaires.

When my old Sansa e270 player and Etymotic Research ER-6i cans got stolen a few weeks ago I set myself a budget of US$200 to assemble some new kit. This is what I managed:

Player: Sandisk Sansa Fuze 8GB (from Yongsan Electronics Market) US$72
Cans: Future Sonics Atrio M8 (from US$95
Case: Clear crystal case (from Yongsan Electronics Market) US$4
Amp: Fiio E5 (from US$17.41
Memory: Kingston 4GB MicroSDHC (from Yongsan Electronics Market) US$9

Total cost: US$197.41

I'm pretty pleased with this kit - I'm getting some great sounds for the price.

Can anybody top this? What's the best setup you can manage for US$100, US$200 or US$300? Please reply!

Good cheer,
