        @dubiousmike, did you ever hear a difference while playing with the output impedance switch for the HD650/800?

        @Pyruvate sorry for the much delayed reply on this! It is easiest to hear the difference in the bass, particularly with hd800's, although the effect is somewhat subtle. With impedance switched to low, deep bass is tighter and more detailed. Switch it to high and it gets a little more rounded off, but mid-bass gets slightly fuller.

      You have any experience with the BH phono's?

        Afraid not. If you end up taking the plunge though, I'd be interested to hear your impressions.
