And you're welcome.
DG is Deutche Grammaphon    Here is the website    
The websites of DG, Hyperion and other classical music recording companies like Channel Classics provide lossless downloads on their websites.
K701 sounds plasticky with artificial soundstage.
I agree! But I believe that classical music (and Jazz) is more complex because of the instruments used. It's very hard to reproduce the timbre and vibrations of strings and piano accurately on audio equipment. I didn't mean that non classical music is not enjoyable on high end audio. But you can enjoy rock and metal on low end audio as well, but it's almost impossible to enjoy classical properly on low end equipment. May I'm wrong, but this is my very subjective experience.
Actually you're right. This is really harsh I agree that the rest is a bit better, but not very clear.  
This is low quality recording from beginning to end.
I think it relates to the type of music and the quality of the recording. With classical music there are tons of details and complex textures that cannot be handled by any headphones or just any equipment. I guess that's the reason I was forced to become an audiophile. With low quality headphones or earbuds I can tell the difference immediatley. 
Get AKG K271 or K240 but you need amp for both. Personally I prefer the vintage K240DF but those are 600 ohm and you need a powerful amp to drive them properly, so K240 MKII will do for the moment.
I think we need to hear from someone who has the K340 and the Lyr, although I don't like tube rolling.
