I've had my hd595's for since this afternoon, but I just put them on and gave them a try directly to my sound card. First of all, my m-audio rev 7.1 is not ideal for this setup, and in the future i'll probably add an head-amp and creative x-fi platnium or something of the sort. Anyway, first of all, I understand your addiction, I hear what you call a soundstage. I also understand why you guys rip flacc, 128 kbps sounds awful, 320 kbps doesn't sound bad, cd's sound better then both, and flacc sounds good (well I haven't tried it, but flacc is a cd on your hard drive with full quality.) I can turn them up fully without it hurting my ears, possibly that is because there is so little distortion compared to any other phones i've tried before. I have logitech z-5500 speakers, and have heard some good speaker systems, and I think I'm going to sell my speaker system now. I see no reason why to keep it, headphones have such a soundstage, and compared to my speakers, are amazing, with my speakers I don't even hear a soundstage.
