LOL - please note (this is an important distinction!):
What I guessed was not a wishlist, it was just a guess, plain-&-simple.
I don't actually care how many drivers it has (though I would like to see at least 3 drivers). Some people are saying the EM32 sounds very good and that's only 3 drivers.
But the reason I suspect the 'Stage 5' may be a high driver count is just because there seems to be a FOTM of vendors doing that.
I personally did not find the SE-5 to be a game-changer, but I have not yet heard the NT6-Pro (I would very much like to hear it), but 5 drivers with 4 crossover points does seem to relate to 2 of the highest-regarded CIEMs, so there seems little reason to exceed that, other than in an effort to increase bandwidth, but I've never heard anyone remark that the SE-5 or NT6-Pro lack bandwidth.
....so, yeah... it's difficult to see what is really being gained, on a practical level, by using 10 or a dozen drivers.
