I think you are fishing in the wrong pond.  There are entire threads elsewhere in the forum dedicated to the LCD 2 and what powers it well/the best.  Start by checking the Summit-Fi section of the forum.
Much of this depends on your budget.   However, this CD deck is being discontinued and is an excellent buy at $279 shipped:   http://www.musicdirect.com/p-13125-marantz-cd5004-cd-player.aspx   There are currently some good deals on SACD decks as well.  Beyond the shipping window for Christmas it could get even better.   The Woo WA7 Fireflies are an excellent amp (with a DAC).  Also check out the various versions of the Burson Soloist/Soloist SL and Audio-gd...
If you are coming from many a lesser can to the HD 650, I suppose that might be (relatively) true.  However, if you are coming from a can like the HD 800, T1, HE 500, Sony MDR-SA5000 or even the Q701, various Grados & Alessandros or the HD 600, you can hear the difference.  In this context the HD 650 lacks air & upper harmonics and it is a tad on the slow side.  It sounds that way with the Asgard 2 or a Burson. Yes it's a great can, but it has its relative weaknesses.
I realize that you are new and probably have limited privileges.  However, there is an entire sub-section of the forum devoted to Computer Audio.  This is not a question that is likely to get the appropriate attention or expertise on a soup to nuts recommendations thread on a headphone site.
xb = extra bass = basshead cans--that's far more bass than "warm".  The M100 is a well regarded basshead lite can.   You'll have to be more specific about the sound signature you are seeking.  What is "fun" to you will not be "fun" for everyone.

 Can't say that I agree, especially for a can in this price range.  See: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/creative-aurvana-live-classic-reincarnate-page-2
HD 650 without an adequate amp is a waste of money.   The HD 650 is certainly not weakness free.  Those looking for neutral, great detail and airy treble will not find it with the HD 650.  However it is very very good at what it does.
 Cans like the HE 500, HE 560, LCD-2 and T-1 come to mind.  You can read about all of them, except the newer HE 560 here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/634201/battle-of-the-flagships-58-headphones-compared-update-audeze-lcd-2-revision-2-6-4-13
