Is it just me or is the d800 shutter quieter/smoother after the FW update?

I ran the shutter sound through a sound analyzer before and after the firmware update. No difference. You are experiencing the phenomena of power of suggestion and wishful thinking.

That's great work.

Please share the result (the two graphs) because a FW update actually CAN change the perceived shutter sound.

Or more precisely, it can change the delay between mirror and shutter which makes an audible difference. This delay can be measured (with 1/10 ms accuracy) from said graphs.
