That sounds like an expensive and enthralling idea, sir. Sign me up. Seriously, though, I'll probably end up doing that, even if the HD800 comes later on.
I saw that you got yours from HeadAmp. Do you know how the warranty works for you if you ever happen to need service? I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth taking a chance on PriceJapan. They're around $200 cheaper than buying from a Canadian place, including the import taxes, but their website says that a one-year "valid in Japan" warranty is issued for the items they buy. Apparently you have to send them back any defective item with shipping there and back at your cost.
Although, if the information on the Fostex website is right, that's kind of what I'd be doing locally anyway, it's just mailing it to a service place in Canada instead. Unless it mentions on the warranty card that you get to deal with Fostex directly.
