Nice read, Stan.......thanks. Your assessment of the sonics of the two pretty much correlates with mine, except that I prefer the D66s. I find them more balanced overall.

Overall, i've been very impressed with the Eggos, but it lacks a certain hi-end sound to them (detail?) that makes it hard for me to reach for them when I have some V6s in the way. This is especially true, if i'm in the mood for some energizing music on a mundane workday. Perhaps my take on them will change with time, but at the moment, I prefer the quirky bassy sound of the V6s with the music that *I* listen too. Others may not agree with my assessment, but it’s just my untrained opinion.

For the price it runs today...i certainly hope so . anyway, let's stick with the 66 only here please.

Well, they do show up from time to time on e-bay, and perhaps elsewhere, so it's not completely irrelevant.

I do agree about the Eggos having better soundstaging. However, sometimes they sounded echoey with certain kinds of music (primarily acoustic jazz ensembles). The lack of bass was the biggest disappointment for me too; many people tend to think of the bass as an isolated part of the frequency response, but good bass enhances mid-range too, and makes for a more pleasurable listening experience, regardless of whether you're a bass-head or not. Due to the lean bass, mids tend to lack weight and fullness in the Eggos, and the upper-mid/treble emphasis in these cans made them too bright for me with most rock and electronica. Classical and acoustic jazz are where these would fare best, IMO.
