Thanks for posting your notes.  It's odd that the 33hz rated 88s didn't go as low as the Harbeths, but given that you listen to the LL + SR009 on a daily basis, I don't doubt your ability to pick up on how low the bass is going.  Maybe it's rated off, or maybe the decay times have something to do with it.     Btw, I like your wife(ish)'s description of the Leben.
  Cool.  Could you post your demo impressions of all three in the 'pics of your high end rig' thread?  It's a bit more conducive to that discussion than this one.  IIRC people were following your pre-demo thoughts on that thread anyway.
Might as well put the rent or mortgage into the calculation then.  
Twsmith, agreed wholeheartedly.  The SD option is certainly the most resolving.  I prefer it as the reference standard in my rig, but when I'm lazy to upload a new CD, the Cambridge/optical combination sounds really good, almost analogue-like but without the precision of SD.  Like I said, it's a more cohesive presentation where you have trouble pin pointing things, but the whole room just fills with the music.  Will have to try out the adapter at some point but for now,...

Just discovered this based on a recommendation: http://www.zoekeating.com/projects.html   Listen to the first three tracks sampled there.  Sublime!
  Oh man, don't even get me started on that one.  
  Kjk, yes I compared them to the UM3X as well as the B2 (DBA-02 clone) which I have owned for a long time (no longer do).  Also in house were a pair of Stax IEMs (SR-003 + 252S energizer).  My expectations are based on those, plus the sum of my experiences with all my phones, including the top full size phones.     However, when listening to the CX 985, I mostly had the Brainwavz B2 in mind, which is the only sub-$200 IEM I hold in really high regard for how hard it...
