Check out the Takstar Pro 80 (Gemini HSR-1000) headphones. Plug them into a Sound Blaster Z card.   Between the 4 headphones you have listed, I would say to spend the extra for the SRH840 or DT250. But still check out the Takstar/Gemini.
 Hopefully you disabled the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS, when you installed the Xonar DX.Here are some third party drivers for the Xonar  DX.http://maxedtech.com/asus-xonar-unified-drivers/ Do you have a budget for the over all audio upgrade? I'm thinking your better off just keeping the Xonar DX and get a headphone amplifier for use with the Xonar DX.The Xonar DX and Essence STX both use the same C-Media CMI8788 audio processor.The Essence STX does have a...
 What are the sources (Blu-ray, DVD, Internet video, etc) of the movies and what programs do you use to play them.
 I'm sure for around $500 you can find a good A/V receiver.http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/category/avreceiver/home-audio/receivers-amps/home-theater-receivers/1.html?&r=56c60ece This Infinity 5.1 speaker package ($1950) is something i've considered buying.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L3N9PTU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2MOLN1AV11M0&coliid=I15JE0SX63N2BU You might also try asking on the websites AVSforum and AVforum about home audio.
You can hook up just about any amplifier you want, to the Audioengine D1's RCA output jacks. Or just sell off the D1 and get a different DAC.
My opinion and two cents.I really doubt it worth it to rip your entire CD collection to ALAC/FLAC if you already have good quality 320K audio files.I have a lot of 256K audio files and a few of my ultimate favorites in FLAC, so I've listened to stuff where i have the same song in both 256k and FLAC, really almost no difference.It nice having audio files in FLAC, but it just may not be worth it for all the time you would need to put in making the FLAC audio files and then...
 I know zero about what ear pads to get for your HE-400.If you get a DAC, it needs to have a headphone amplifier function (down stream from the DAC function), either built in or an add-on amplifier.
 If they are both the same price, then get the 600-Ohm version.
 Where do you live?Audio-GD can usually ship from their Hong Kong offices, to just about any place in the world. Your motherboard comes with the Creative Labs SoundCore3D audio processor, which uses it's own built in DAC function, while decent, something like the Asus Xonar DX sound card or Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z sound card should be an improvement.The SB-Z also comes with a SoundCore3D audio processor, but also comes with a CS4398 DAC chip, the CS4398 provides the...
If you like a lot of bass/treble in your audio, then you should like the DT990 600-Ohm.
