Have fun with the new toy!
I also have Final iems but in my case the 4000. I love the sound too. My only criticism is the sound isolation of these iems. In my opinion they both work so much better in the balanced mode, the E4000 and the Denon Ah-d7200. It is not only much more powerful in the SR25 but also sounds better to me.
I just tried connecting a pair of E5000's to the balanced line on the SR25 and I actually think the SR25 doesn't have enough juice to power the E5000's. The E5000 are definitely pretty power hungry, as I noticed an audible difference across the board when I was running them unbalanced out of my JDS Element II.
I wonder if this means I need an external portable amp now. Maybe the Lotoo Paw S1?
