Most (music websites) prefer to have multiple flacs with cue and rip log. I think that's an excellent choice. I'm also annoyed by large single file albums. And you wanna keep your cue sheet since it doesn't take up that much space.
I do not own 650, but I do own D2000 and PortaPro. So I can compare those two. Actually there's no comparison, D2000 does everything better as expected from a can that sells for $200 more.
