Garage1217's Project Polaris is probably a great choice. Others can probably comment on that.
IMO the only way to experience true sound is with pure silver cables, 40W monoblocks, and with a bobblehead positioned perfectly on top of the DAC. The last part is the most important for the system though. If the head is shaking too much it means you aren't getting the best connection to your blocks and you may be getting a bit of distortion. I've also found that suspending my cables makes a HUGE difference. If you let your cables touch the ground/table/waffle iron/etc....
I just checked out your mod, I like the idea for sure! One thing to note is that the consistency on the MS1i seems to be way off. I originally purchased mine after listening to my buddy's pair which sounded warm. Yes, a warm Grado. Mine were bright and strident in comparison, which is why I dove into the MS1000 mod. I have 4 bass holes, felt inside the distancer, and some really terrible looking cloth glued to the inside of the pad. They are definitely beater cans for...
 Off topic: I see you have the MS1000 as well. Such a killer headphone. I find myself enjoying it just as much (if not more sometimes) than any of the others I own. Punchy, spacious, airy... mmmm

 LOL I'm freakin' losing it.
The HD800 is a headphone that appears to only be "unlocked" after you drop about $5k on equipment to feed it. It may be regarded as one of the best (if not the best) by many people but it's not like you can experience it out of a budget setup like you can with the HE-4.
 That's what I'm guessing. I'll start worrying about it in a week or so
 Very soft... and very squishy...
 Looks like he hasn't been around in a while... and he has my pads...
