I've made several changes over the past year and streamlined the system.  Addition of the subs and a new cartridge phono stage have made the biggest difference.  Future upgrades at the top of my list are; a bit perfect upgrade to my DAC and better music streamer.  Thanks for looking!

This is a late response but... The HD-650 withe the tube amp (Darkvoice 337se) was really great to sink into a couch to.  I ended up selling the amp though (I'll never part with the headphones).  I also love the LCD-2/Schiit combo, the low-end is incredible and it is far from "clinical" despite being very detailed.  In the end it is less finicky, more detailed and just as much fun.


I got the media counsel of of  Not the highest quality but very heavy and looks nice.  I'm not sure it would survive a move though


Thanks @mjcmt! 

@dusty, it isn't ideal but moving the speakers up helped with that a lot.  The Cylindrical Diaphragm tweeters on the Gallos image quite well so I think they offset some of the negatives.  I'm having a hard time selling the wife on thick curtains or acoustic treatments on an indoor window (;
