Nah, if I went back to the audiophile world, it would be for cans in the range of $200-350, which is where I find price/performance to be at it's best. I loved delving into the higher end stuff, but I found it unnecessary when the mid-fi was just so damn good.
Not back, fyi, just visiting. I find it better for my sanity and wallet to stay away. XD
Munchy, I couldn't have put it better myself. I too feel the DT990 definitely need an amp in conjunction with the Mixamp, even 32ohm variants. Beyer dropped the ball in the 32ohm versions, since those are still very power hungry, and regularly go for more than the 250ohms and 600ohm..
