I have frequently found that "more detail" means a compressed sound so that the lower levels signals are boosted or the higher levels are suppressed. you also have to determine in which part of the audio spectrum you need more detail. Is it bottom, mids, tops? The membranes on electrostatic cans are only able to move between two fixed points, otherwise they'll short out! So you can't boost them like you can do with "ordinary" cans. Give us an idea of what is missing in the detail that you hear, and that you are looking for. Perhaps you want a brighter sound, or more bass? Be specific. Otherwise you'll get all sort of dud recommendations.
For the record: I use 3 turntables, 4 cans, 3 power amps, 2 pre-amps, 4 DACs, 2 sets of speakers. I am currently looking for an additional set of speakers. I found out long time ago that no one system set up can cope with each of my taste from classical to rock, reggae, electro, etc. So it's a case of 1st selecting the play list, wiring in the appropriate parts together, and then firing up the fuses.
