A couple of posters over at Head-Fi told me I'd like the change an amp provided to the AD700's but never in my wildest imagination did I think it would make this much of a difference. Now I'm wondering if I really need to spend an extra ~ $250+ for a new set of cans.

I've yet to try sli with my gtx285's but should be able to get round to that in a couple of days.

Anyone who likes cans should take a hard look at the STX. With its built in amp it's got to be the #1 audio card for those folks and btw, I changed out the opamps and settled on the LT1364 and two LM6172's, which made a very noticeable improvement in sound quality.
