Let me start this by saying that my current setup is Squeezebox -> Peachtree Decco -> K701s. I am not unhappy with this setup, just a annoyed with having to manually plug in headphones when I want to switch to headphones, etc. They sound great, but I need a headamp again for general ease of use. I think I have decided on the Schiit Bitfrost/Lyr combo for my headphone setup, so I have a couple of questions.
1) What are people's impressions of the Bitfrost/Lyr combo powering K701s.
2) Considering that I am fairly happy with the sound of my current setup, is it worth looking into something like the HE-500 to pair with the Schiit?
3) How do the K701 and HE-500 compare on the Schiit?
I probably would not be getting rid of the K701s, as my kids mangled the K240Ms that I was using for computer audio, and I need something to replace them.
