I know that there are already numerous threads regarding this topic on the forums, however I have chosen to start my own as my situation is unique. I have a budget of roughly $1700 and am deciding between the HE-500s with the Bifrost (with uber analog upgrade) and Lyr combo, or the LCD-2s with the ALO audio pan am, passport, and siemens tubes.
I primarily listen to jazz and female vocalists, but I occasionally listen to club/house music and classic rock. What would you recommend? I am willing to expand my budget if necessary but I would rather be under $1700.
