Shhh.  Nobody make any sudden movements.  Yes preproman, another website.  AVSforum.  See you there!
  So is HD saying 70wpc @ 50 or 8?  (Mostly just being stubborn here, probably means 8?)   --     I'm starting to come around to this view.  I like ultra linear things, but it's an exercise in futility when the AD and AA process on the recording side is rampantly ****ty.  Why ultra-resolve what mastering engineers don't even care about and have carelessly compressed or carelessly mixed?  Might as well strap on something pleasing.  I say that, but I know I'm a little used...
  Interesting path, thx for writing it out.  
  This is pretty interesting.  Care to offer a few words on why the HD800/Bryston won out?  
Okay, winner is CCK5 - PM sent.  Updated first post.  
Closed, will announce.
I sold the Paradox I had on it's way to me and picked up a Vader Paradox (all black) on the used market, [snip] looking forward to hearing it.
  I seem to be having withdrawal symptoms, I got all neurotic yesterday--needed a headphone--and if I could have found a decent deal it would have been the 650 but here I am with a jet black Vader Paradox on it's way to me.  Got what seems like a decent deal used.   I'll eventually find my way back to the fold, address my withdrawal more directly with crack.  Neutrality be damned.     That tube amp I sold a while back was also a perfect amp for the HD650, I'm still bitter...
  Glad it's working out for you.  All I noticed between it and the Stratos were mostly some spatial differences, minor other diff, but I don't think it would have been as apparent on headphones.
  It's DIY kit.  It's heavily documented on this site that the upgrade does pretty much what they say it does.  Also on their website: yes it requires soldering but they will build for you at a fee.  They used to advertise the fee but no longer do.
