Specifically for the music you mentioned, I bet a pair of Dana 640is would get you the "subtle, lush nuances of music" you are looking for. I read these threads:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1341386

and read reviews about it's smaller sibling the 630is as well as reviews of it's older predecessor (630) and was pretty enticed by what I read..
"Fantastic detail without being bright or harsh, amazing purity and transparency especially in the lower midrange/upper bass, outstanding imaging and soundstage"
"Over the last couple of months I had the Ascend Sierra-1 NrTs, Swan D2.1SE+Customs and the Dana 640is for the 30 day in home demos.
I'm now down to 1 pair and I'm listening to my new Dana 640is"
"Truly exceptional for classical, jazz, folk, acoustic, and bringing out the utmost detail and musicality in truly good recordings. "
I recently put an order in for the 630is at the audioinsider (I would order the 640is but my budget is lacking since I am making a separate speaker purchase soon) for my dad who primarily listens to classical music. I can't wait to break them in for an extended period of time and enjoy them a bit before I set them up for my dad
(BTW I have a HP SubM- excellent choice... wish I could afford two, although I have to say one easily ROCKS the house and is great with any type of music I throw at it!)
