    Essence STX + AD700's

    I would just go with the one that puts out the volume you like.  I just bought this card today and I have tried my Grado RS-2's on it and it calls for the "normal" setting based on its low impediance but I went with the high output setting (1 above) and it sounds great.

    IM716 for $49 on Dec 3rd,

    I just ordered myself a pair as well. I figured for the cost, it was worth taking a flier on them and trying them out!

    Which Grado's are a "must-have"?

    The sweet spot from a performance to price ratio is the RS-2 IMO. You can get one used for reasonable money here and it sounds pretty good with all types of music.

    AKG K701s a

    They aren't for everyone. I have never really cared for mine either. I should probably list them up for sale and get something I would like better.

    Singlepower extreme - so many for sale right now, why?

    Don't underestimate the fall off in the economy. I think some are just hard up for some cash right now and maybe an expensive headphone amp is a quick place to get out of debt for some?

    For around (or under) $100, you'd buy...

    I wouldn't buy any of them. I would save up for a good headphone.
