+1 You're the man Justin and if/ (who and I kidding) when I upgrade to my next pair I'm buying from you guys.
And great write up btw. I own the HE-400's but was thinking about selling them to upgrade to the 500's or possibly LCD 2's and your impressions were very helpful and once I get to test the LCD's in a week or so it'll help me make my decision. Or I may just try and get a nice tube amp to complete my set up but have no idea what to look at. Had the EF2a from Hifiman but wasn't impressed with the DAC but loved the warm tube sound so I'm hooked. Trying to stay under $300 so you can imagine how limited my options are.
