A question about headphones
@r042wal   Congratulations. Great to hear you "couldn't be happier.'    I purchased a 'new to me' Shitt LYR 2 headphone amp and a pair of Hifiman HE-R9 cans.  To sum it up, I couldn't be happier for a first time setup  
Harman Kardon HK990 Question
@millercarbon   Wishing you the best, and success, in your endeavors.   The dream from here is add Origin Live, Tetrault Audio, maybe make enough to cover travel expenses and shipping costs to shows. Maybe even make enough to pay for ads here.

+1  @lancelock    I do prefer the LTA Pre over the Rhumba but the Rhythm crushes them both. The LTA is very good, but if you've got the coin go for the Rhythm.

System that sounds so real it is easy to mistaken it is not live
No. However, I'm happy for you. Delusion and disbelief are good friends to lean on.  
The character of analog and digital
@tomic601  +1   Mastering while important is not the whole process….

Dust Settled Consensus- is the Benchmark AHB2 an Audiophile Amplifier?
@mrdecibel   The full quote, attributed to John Farlowe is: "I want to know why the musicians are on stage, not where".  It is the tag line of member matthais (of WhatsBestForum)  Cheers. - David.
