Mini Amp

Since 2014 doesn't really have anything interesting hardware wise for me i thought it would be about time i loose the siberia v2 and get a proper audio setup.
I am not a fan of soundcards because they look pretty hideous, so i decided to go with a mini amp, which seems to be the preferred choice on here anyways.
The problem is that the FiiO E10 isn't available anymore, not even on the manufacturer's website, so i am looking for an alternative.
Price should be in about the same range, if it's a few euros more it won't bother me. It doesn't need to be portable since i won't use the headphones with my phone anyways.
Any recommendations?
Also general headphone recommendations.

It's still on the manufacturer website at least the international one (under products - Desktop amp/converter). I did not find ist in the german fiio online shop, though. So maybe they have no stock right now, or a successor model is about to be released.
I would say it's worth the wait to see if it's restocked or if there will be a new model.

i found the amp on amazon.co.uk, as you said on the international site etc., it seems like it's only not available in germany.

the magni is 112 euros incl. shipping and taxes. very much considering that.
well, give me all you got mates, which headphones should go with this beauty.
/edit
i will have to wait anyways till modmic releases their v4.
ah crap, i need both the magni and the modi. that's a bit too expensive.
any other mini amps?
