That was my reaction when I first listened to the HD650's. I have had mine for about a month now and they are such a joy to listen to and I only have a beginner setup. I am still pleasantly surprised at all of the nuances in songs I hear with the HD650's that I have previously missed out on.

All depends on availability and price. I already spend more on tubes than I paid for assembled amp here on the forum. I think same seller still have freshly built unit

Oh ok, I like my music to have a lot of bass and texture, but not so much as to overpower the rest of the music; as well as, I like my music to have a warm undertone. I mainly like to listen to indie, folk, and some alternative rock. What tube suggestions do you have for my situation?

This is considered off topic I would recommend check and ask such questions in appropriate thread in the forum where you will find more experienced members. I have very precise hearing but can't accurately describe it in writing

I've had mine for about 7 months and it has been paired with what is my current setup for about 5 months. I'm still amazed by them every time I put them on. I'm confident this is about as good as it gets in this price range. There might be a slightly better setup out there for the money, but it would likely take a bit of time, energy, and money to find it (and like I said, even then it would likely only be slightly better). The sick thing is not only is it one of the best sounding setups in this price range but it competes well with more expensive setups (think LCD2/Lyr/Bifrost). You really have to drop a ton of money in my opinion before you start blowing the HD650's out of the water.

Has anyone here used the HD650 with the Yulong D100 MKII? What are your impressions of that combination?  I read that the D100 puts out 130mw into 300 ohm.  I've seen some people say that its underpowered for the HD650, while others said it has more than enough power.  Was hoping to get some first hand impressions from my fellow HD650 threaders.
