 MBL 1511/1531 are both very colored. Mids are warm and dark, with very noticeable roll-off in the top end. My biggest problem with the lower end MBL sources is that they lack layering throughout the spectrum (mushy bass, lack of instrument separation, etc), and congested soundstage. If the 1511 is your reference then perhaps you have different sonic priorities than most.I'd like to point out that for the price of the MBL DAC you could have purchased all the prior DACs...
Have the 220v units started shipping yet? A friend was asked to paid the remainder awhile back and he hasn't heard from Justin since =/.

 We need a thumbs down button on head-fi. It should be red (for rage). What I like about most of Purrin's reviews is that even though he sometimes delves into the more technical side of things most of what he says is easily understood, even by laymen.I'm glad you tried to sound knowledgeable even though you got the smackdown two posts later, but in the passage you quoted Purrin clearly describes what microdynamics encompasses and how the DA8 is flawed in this department....
 The ED5 sounds like an upgraded ED8. How all purpose that makes it is still questionable.Saying the ED5 is more balanced than the TH900 (which is not a balanced headphone) is still pushing it. The TH900 sounds more U curved while the ED5 is treble heavy. 
Justin I sent you a PM and email regarding two BHSE shipments, both paid in full. Please give me a response.
 4 different drivers actually, the later ones (#4) are more like modified CD3000 drivers since they ran out of r10 stock. Bass has more to do with the damping foam/ foam rings inside the R10 and different states of decay- earlier ones have less bass since most of the foam is deteriorated. Once replaced all revisions have almost the same amount of bass in terms of quantity.Nothing like the TH900 bass though, which is overwhelming in both quantity and impact.
