This amp isn't seeing as much use as I had hoped it would so I'm selling it.   I bought this in the Massdrop sale for $1241.89 ($1194.99 + $46.90 in shipping).

It also depends on the music. I tend to listen to acoustic music, so the 880 had a moderate boost. But some more bass-oriented music might be overwhelming with them. It is the same with the sibilance: I only had it with one track, which was the same one I thought sounded better on the 860s.
If there was a change, it would most definitely be deliberate I reckon.
I agree: They are best if the S-Logic works well with your ears and brain. If not, they sound rather odd.
The video was a bit rushed, but here it is:
