HD 600?
You can go to the specific track you want with a turntable.

I must revive this thread, because I've just listened to an absolutely revelatory recording - Pablo Casals conducting the Marlboro Festival Orchestra in Beethoven's 7th and 8th symphonies (Amazon link, ArkivMusic link): Perhaps the seasoned collectors on this board have this already, but it was new to me. The 7th symphony in this recording is at least the equal of Carlos Kleiber's legendary DG version. But the real revelation is the 8th symphony - simply, without...

I'll assume that the HD650 is not going to be used portably (it's listed in your "home rig"). In which case, I think a PIMETA (especially with a 24V AC power supply) amp would be a great match for the Senn, and you can get it for the same price range as the Bithead (~$100-$220) My upgrade path was PA2V2 > PIMETA with the HD600, and it was a very appreciable improvement.
