Good point on sound preferences.  I had an Asgard and sent it back.  It was thin, bright and lacking in bass on my HD650's.  To be fair, I did wonder if something was wrong with it because folks kept talking about how hot it should run...and even after being on for hours, it was just warm to the touch...none of this "I could hardly touch the volume knob" stuff.   Still, my 650's sound wonderful with a el84 based OTL head amp.  I don't use them as a critical...
I own both and the 650 has a warmer, fuller bass than the 598, but depending on the amp, you can get pretty good bass out of the 598.   I'm using a Headroom Supreme and with just a dab of eq (about 1.2 db from 30 to 100hz)  they do a nice job. Hibuck...
I'd drive over from North of Rockford as long as it's a Saturday meet. Hibuck..
I would come up to Mad town for a get together. Hibuck...
I use mine in the office with a Headroom Total Airhead. I use a little eq in Songbird and love the combo!
weekend bump. Awaiting payment on AKG, Member said he'd take fostex, but no money, no reply for 5 days...so I'm going to count them as still for sale.
1.   Fostex T50RP. near new, about 50 hours use.   $70 2.   Fischer FA-011 dark wood, good cond.  $90 3.   AKG 240 vintage studio 600 ohms...$45   All work just as they should, have boxes for Fostex and Fischer. I will split shipping, I will cover paypal fees. Pics for serious inquiries. Hibuck...  both AKG's and Fostex are sold pending receipt of payment. Fischer still available.   
Depends on the music. A little in the midrange or up around 10k Hibuck..
It seems my wallet is threatened evey time I come to this site :) Hibuck...
+1 on the Total Airhead.   I also have a vintage Headroom Supreme that sounds wonderful with the HD650's  and has more drive than I'll ever need.  Lot's of slam and bass weight. Hibuck....
