Lol. Care to point out where/when Audez'e officially designated the latest iteration as rev.2.2? I refer to it as rev.2.5 because it's quicker than describing the version I have as "the latest, with black metal angled connectors" every friggin' time.

The HE500 is a natural upgrade to the HD6xx line for the ones wondering. More so than the LCD's which have more of a unique house sound

I think I'm going to have to disagree a bit there. I got a chance to closely compare my HD600 and the HE500 at a meet last week. To my ears the HE500 was just a bit darker than the HD600. And for me at least, I found that it lacked overall extension in the highs as compared with the HD600. Not to say it was bad, oh no, its midrange (and that of some of the other Hifi man cans i tried) was simply amazing. There's something purely musical about it. But for me, i think the slightly brighter analytic side of things is for me. I believe this is why I fell so madly in love with the HD800.

Not for US, I believe, don't know if Sennheiser care, some manufacturers like Canon do.

I'm kind of tired of my HD 800s, technically they are good performers but they lack body and warmth in the bass and the treble is a bit too bright (like so many feel). I never use them anymore and I much prefer my Momentum for long listening sessions. The tonal balance is more natural there. 

Maybe one should try a tube amp? Any serious recommendations at a reasonable price? Nothing overly fancy, no big, balanced powerhouses - just a great sounding tube amp that will make them shine. If the combination is successful, one could always upgrade to something more "high end" later on.

A budget would be helpful. Balanced powerhouse doesn't have to cost a lot either. The Little Dot MKVI+ and MKVIII SE are excellent balanced powerhouses and are about $700-800. Also these use tubes that are great for rolling. Many options available.

I use the Decware  CSp2 with the Amperex Bugle Boys and Sylvania 5U4G and find no brightness just great soundstage and pipoint focus with warm kids but not syrupy and great bass definition. I won't change that combo

I have a Musical Fidelity M1HPA right now and I'm looking for something at a similar price range.

I don't need balanced as my source is single ended and I use the stock cable.

Really not sure what your price range is but this amp is said to be a really good amp at a pretty much OK price.
