  Except one is coming up, and the other is going away...
 Interesting.  The numbers out for balanced are similar weather its being fed single ended or balanced.  Very interesting indeed...
I'm not sure if the "Z9" excites me or not.  I love the Z7, because of what it does as a closed headphone.  (Well, mostly closed)
 Successor or open alternative?
 I don't think so, but I'd still prefer a properly amped HE6 then an HD800.
 Just listen to whatever your avatar is, and be happy when it shows...
 Yes, both RCA and the 1/8" input both go through the phase splitter.  I used the 1/8" input with my CLAS db for many months till I finally got off my butt and got a Musette, which uses RCA...
  Interesting find on the tubes.  I'll be curious on more opinions on the Z7 mids, as you spend more time wit them.  The HD650 is still "mids king" to me as well...
 Just remember there's a second cable in the box.  If budget is an issue, they could reterminated and shortened a bit too, if need be.... But without starting a cable war, I heard a noticed improvement when I went to the Kimber.  And keep in mind there are many other aftermarket options available too.
 Those are my compliment cans currently too.  Z7s are more bass forward and closed, which can be great for off hours listening... On a side note, I had a week with the Audeze Sine.  And if you think the HD650 is smooth, you ain't heard nothing yet.  I was kinda disappointed by them, as I was expecting some of that "planar bass" and wasn't feeling the love.  Its a good, not great headphone...
