I didn't know that RP5.1 has ever come with one headphone output. Are you sure about it? The only difference in this new C-model is that it has high and low headphone outputs (old one had same impedance on both) and RCA output on back.
My comments probably won't help you much but here we go.
Actually when I first time used GS1000 it was out of my RP5.1 amp. That time they sounded like crap and my opinion hasn't changed much after that. My tubes were probably Amperex back then so they definitely weren't optimal for GS1000. I'd recommend some warmer and fuller sounding tubes for GS1000 (like Mullard).
With my friends Wadia + SP Supra combination GS1000 sounded clearly better but I still didn't like them at all.
