Just received the 5s running from a much higher end pre/DAC than necessary (down sizing, long story) but the bass from these are more than I expected. Not sub woofer levels in depth but I had to tone them down to the lowest setting. I love deep bass too but you might be okay with the 5s as-is. You could do the 5s from the Dragonfly for a total of about $500. Call Emotiva about open box 5s, I got mine for $300 shipped, same for Dragonfly (from Audio Adviser for example).In...
No problem but the O2 with DAC is $279 plus shipping and tax so about the same as the NFB-15 for a lot less features and power supply/regulation.If $300 is too high, I would stick with the E17. I had it and thought it pretty darn good. A lot of people use a banana hanger: http://www.amazon.com/Euro-Banana-Holder-Satin-Nickel/dp/B000G66N2M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422315550&sr=8-1&keywords=banana+hanger&pebp=1422315553494&peasin=B000G66N2M Try pleather pads if not already.
Try the pleather pads- I don't hear spiky treble. If you were to upgrade, I would consider the Audio-gd NFB-15 for about $300 shipped. Also, if you have a desk with an edge, try the Koss- http://www.amazon.com/Koss-Hold-Phone-Stereophone-Black/dp/B002AO83HQ Yes, I have all items mentioned.
Ah, I clicked on the wrong one.
HE-9 is $650 more than Master-9. He actually has taken some time to bring out new stuff, upgraded designs used to come every few months (Master-5/6/8/9, I have the Master-5).
Works on my Master-5 w/o issue
tinted plastic sheets from a hobby store, cut to fit the display cuts down brightness by however much you want.
I was told the 02 version had the best amps- the 03 and later versions went to a different, cheaper amp (I own the 4802).
Used Energy speakers like the RC10 or the older eXL (eXL-16 are superb for the money) series are great. I also like older Mirage with the gold dome tweeters like the M490.   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mirage-Set-of-M-490-L-R-MCC-R-Center-Speaker-Excellent-Condition-Speakers-/231346852041?pt=Speakers_Subwoofers&hash=item35dd58d0c9   http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Energy-eXL-16B-1-Speakers-/381009560012?pt=Speakers_Subwoofers&hash=item58b5f081cc
Make your own cable with the thinner 2893 Mogami cable, easy and fun if you have a solder gun- mine is very thin and flexible with zero microphonics
