I call dibs on that!

The L05QD sounds like a flagship from the demos alone! It has less bass than the UERM (hopefully the real thing has more bass, but from my memories, the UERM demo has much more bass than the real thing), but they have a surprisingly similar sound signature, which I would call both a "ER4 on steroids". However, UERM actually has more weight in each note, and L05QD is what I would call a more "electrostatic" sound. Both soundstage, imaging, and details are amazing.
That's similar to how I heard it between the UERM and QD. I think some people would complain about a lack of bass depth on the QD, but not necessarily with the UERM, whereas the QD has the slight edge in imaging and the sheer "open" feel. I'd be absolutely torn between either one, though.

The voltage divider you're talking about might be some sort of dampening circuit for the other 2 2354s in parallel to dampen the highs (and to improve its sonic quality at the same time).
Ah, I see --- from what I've seen, however, series hookup in 2300 drivers is not that heavily inductive and both drivers end up with good bandwidth. Well, honestly, I don't really know what's going on in there; it's tough to examine that stuff closely when the wires overlap each other, but it does somewhat resemble what you mean. To me, it looks most like this, but might be another resistor in place of the capacitor:

nt6 pro is also supposed to have crazy clarity.
Haven't heard Hidition stuff, but AFAIK the NT6 Pro is supposed to have a clear U-shaped response but with a clear midrange. The QD is not that way; it is more akin to an Ety-type response with a more open, expansive presentation and very slightly better bass depth.
