I'm not really the best person to ask, as in my experience I've never really heard a great difference between amps if the headphone in question is properly driven. Aaand I don't really want to lie to you. :P

Thanks in advance.
Good choice! The song that got me into Opeth. I've never done a play-by-play on a song before, so forgive me if this is a bit of a crude summary.
One thing I really like is the Martin's playing; you could pretty much see him moving around his set as Mikael sings in front of you and the very clean acoustic guitars play to the side. Guitars here are cleanly separated, especially in the solo, where the solo is in a very distinct position from any of the rhythm guitars, which I believe was a problem with the 3.0's; you can also much more distinctly here each guitar channel independently with the AD's. Due to the lack of smooshiness that I described earlier, more subtle details of the song come out, like Martin messing up his fill at 3:54, which I've never noticed until now, or how clear and distinct his crash hits sound on the acoustic section. Mikael's voice is good, but nothing really that stands out, though again, in terms of detail retrieval, I hear the reverb of his harsh vocals more clearly than with the 3.0's.
Generally however, the song is very evenly represented throughout the spectrum like I said in my initial impressions. Pretty much an accurate representation of the song.
