Maybe I missed it, but is there a chance for a stateside demo tour?

Well....... as a matter of fact, yes. I have been working with Grace and will be announcing a [COLOR=0000CD]US tour[/COLOR] next week and posting a signup thread. The goal is to start the tour the second or third week in March. It will include the W900, W500, and some new surprises. Will be announcing here and a few other places once the signup thread goes live.

You're the man!:blush: Thanks for thinking ahead.

Thank you
Different beasts. The AAW900 is more neutral, the AAW500 has stronger bass from memory.

I can only compare from memory, because I upgraded my W500, but I will say I consistently find myself discovering new detail in bass tracks that I didn't hear with the W500.  The W500 did not have one note bass at all, but the W900 is even further from that concept.  I think some may be hearing this difference as decidedly less bass from the W900 compared to the W500.  But I actually feel that I'm hearing more quality bass with the same epic impact.  I don't find myself wishing for the old W500 bass in the least.  The W900 is an excellent upgrade.

think warm, sweet, thick and slower like honey, while the w900 is more dry, neutral and cold

Just had a short run with a friend's W500 actually. Here are my notes:
Rumbly bass with deep and resonating hits. Energetic mids that has the tendency to sound harsh. Thick and heavy notes that works well with vocals and strings. Laidback treble that's somewhat muted.
Less deep-end rumble but better separated against the midrange and more rounded in its hits. Neutral mids with intense detail in the vocals. Very slightly warm tonality, though in comparison to the W500 it's cold and dry. Treble is more in line with neutrality than laid-back, though portrays airiness and shimmer more realistically than the W500. Absolutely no contest in terms of soundstaging and imaging.

I guess the question now is - is it really worth the moolah to upgrade the W500 to the W900?
