I currently use my Crack (with Speedball) + Reduction (with Integration) to listen to my record collection on Sennheiser HD650's. I am considering upgrading my headphone amp to the Crack-a-two-a.

Is this a worthwhile upgrade if I do not plan on upgrading my phono preamp to the Eros?

Surely so.  Either the Mainline or the C-2-A are going to offer better performance than a Speedballed Crack regardless of whether you are using an Eros or Reduction.
