They're all the same. The exact same dimensions and manufacturing processes. The only way one of these headphones can 'dodge the 6k bullet' is by a blunder in the manufacturing process.  I know you were using irony but .... 
Not a chance with todays market.. No need! 
It will be a planar or stat... No doubt!  Probs gonna be called Orpheus 2 or sumfin. And it will be priced accordingly.    My wallet rests easy... 
Couldn't have said it better myself. Yes all halls are different but being central is always an obvious bonus.

Lookin good! 
Two of my favorite Elektra's..   This one is always a surprise for anyone who hasn't heard it me thinks. Ozawa probably wouldn't be anyones first choice for Stauss and its arguable that Behrens hasn't got what it takes for the role. Decide for yourself, but I think it works well. Ozawa conducts very cleverly, building tension slowly and bringing out a bit more light and shade in the score rather than going all out bombastic as some conductors approach this fiercest of...
