We don't go by the shop book, we charge actual time pricing, and our rates aren't set; detailing is $90/hr (includes materials), general mechanical, electrical, and bodywork is $180, and engineering/fabrication is $320.

Are you overclocking?
Where I would tip my hat to the K7XX over the HE560 is breadth and depth of soundstage, otherwise the 560s are just that little bit better than them in every other way.
It's my all-time favorite album, so I've listened to it at least a couple 1000 times. It was just so much more with those `phones (and most other e-stats), it's an extremely well-mixed album for good cans.
The first time I heard Lateralus on my SR-009s was a type of spiritual experience, very powerful.
