    Interesting. That HP market is a special space that is getting tighter and tighter all the time. Too many competitors, too many new models, too many design strategies, and so on. You could get a massive headache from trying to keep up with the higher end of that market. A 4 Tylenol special! lol

    The head-fi guys are just dizzy thinking about it.
    They used to spend 100 of hours and a zillion posts
    beating the whole Senn vs. Grado thing thing to death.
    Now they will have to listen and make real choices. What is
    the world coming to? Let your ears make the decision?
    NOOOOOOOOO! Just tell us what to buy.

    Agreed. I'm a fan of bowers & wilkins speakers (almost bought a pair of CM5's last year), but the P5's fell flat for me.

    I wouldn't have put the HD800 in front of the HE-6.
