  Uncle Erik bought his pair very shortly after I got mine and was also in the first production run.  His had slightly more bass than my pair but had slightly less detail and soundstage width.  So I doubt it has anything to do with new serial numbers vs. old ones.  All drivers will have some variance and that is why Sennheiser matches driver pairs to within half a decibel.   Unless they have a new supplier of materials for their ring radiator driver, I highly doubt there...
  My pair are either in the 500s or 600s.  It was from the first batch they ever shipped.  THAT's old hat. 
  Signify was also my introduction to SW/PT.  It still remains one of my favorite albums of all time and one of the best he has ever done.  Listen to it from start to finish; really listen... it's a masterpiece.
I guess they mailed it to my house.  I got it last night.  I must say, this is the nicest box set he has made.  The way the illustrations, stories and lyrics are presented are quite nice.  It's the same size as the Grace For Drowning set I believe.  But personally I was sick of Lasse Hoile art ages ago so Hajo is a welcome change.  And this was made in Germany this time so it's no doubt the printing quality is top notch.  The best printing presses (Heidelberg, Manrollen,...
  No.  ASITek I think?  I forget it's been so long.  But it is the furthest mod I've ever seen taken to a Transporter.  It has truly been optimized to be the perfect digital source.  I have yet to hear better.
  It took me A LOT of money to build the ultimate system before I was truly satisfied with them, but the beauty is the system performs equally as well for the LCD3.  The gain on my amp is not configured for phones like the HE-6 though, and was optimized for the HD800 and high sensitivity phones.  That could be changed, but then the performance of the high sensitivity phones would drop a notch.   IMO the HD800 need to be driven in a balanced configuration to get the most...
  Just do what I did.  Download the 24/96 FLACs from Burning Shed for $10.  It sucks that it doesn't come free with the set, as it most certainly should and has always been a complaint of mine when paying $90-$100 for a "deluxe edition".  In fact I've complained to Burning Shed numerous times about this.  They don't really care.   My box set is at the post office and I should be receiving it tomorrow.  I can't enjoy the 5.1 anyway, so I might just sell it.   I'm not going...
  It really all depends on the pair.  Compared to one pair I auditioned for many hours, my pair has a good 2-3x as much bass presence and impact between 50-120Hz.  My graph slightly reflects that, too, but not nearly as much as the actual audible results.  So there are LCD-3 out there that are relatively bass light, and others that have serious bass punch.
  Ditto.  This is the best way to keep dust out of your headphones and in optimum condition.  Also, keep the styrofoam spacer that comes with them and put them inside the earcups as well to maintain full, thick ear pads.
  Don't know why I thought it was Dolby then.  But now that I looked up my bookmark you are indeed correct, it was DTS Headphone-X.  Dolby had some updates to their software in January 2013 so I guess I got them confused.  The Headphone-X does sound promising for movies though.  Apparently when they turned the speakers off people had no idea the sound was actually coming from the headphones.  Who knows what cheap pair they were using --- imagine a good pair like the...
