Lol, I'm still using my launch date PS3 from 2005. I've kept it as it is a brilliant SACD player and can output SACD digitally via HDMI into my home theatre receiver. Pretty much every Sony product I've bought has just lasted and lasted.
The HE1000 V2 has indeed improved in the mids and has added back the dynamics and punch that I felt the V1 needed. Actually my SR-009s get plenty of head time...owned them for about 4.5 years now and they still amaze me!
