How far do you guys think the 600 Series has come? Is a 685s2 better than an original N805?

Just pulled the trigger on the 65X850B to replace a KDL-55X501. Hoping the clouding and flash-lighting aren't too bothersome, our room is never totally dark.

I've seen KEF demoing the LS50s with Parasound Halo gear and Arcam FMJ gear. I didn't care for the A23 paired with them and a Benchmark DAC2 HGC but you might.
