I am pretty impressed with the one in this thread already... putting diamond on electronic that "heats" up never seemed to be a good idea to me.. diamond + fire/high heat = good old carbon.

diamond is actually an outstanding thermal conductor at temperatures that do not destroy it.

I don't think it does matter that much for those people who will buy it. It becomes sort of collection instead of daily use.

And you are right, this probably not for head-fi'ers
