What is it your unhappy about? not enough dynamics, transparency? Smoothness?

when it comes down to Hard Rock/Metal, you will have to demo the gear of interest for best outcome. I am a Jazz hound myself and came from a Hard Rock/Metal background. There are more similarities than one may think. Jazz has the upper hand as it is more intellectual in nature. Better recorded/produced as well.
Rock, Hard Rock and Metal music (in general) is poorly recorded/produced.
If you listen to rock and heavy metal, you should change your speakers to something more in the sound-reinforcement vein. Mark Levinson has taken this approach with his Daniel Hertz speakers, which are a hybrid of audiophile and pro-sound concepts. IMO, audiophiles who buy the traditional high-end brands for rock are barking up the wrong tree to a large extent.
