I broke a highback on my older burton triads, I'm looking at new bindings like the Nitro Phantoms or K2 Formulas but am unsure whether their plates will fit on my 2010 Burton Operator with the older burton channel, am I stuck with EST and non reflex burton bindings & EST plate adapters?

I think that the key to your problem is that the earlier channel hardware had a screw head with a wider body and a flat head rather than countersunk head. You might have to drill out the plate if the holes are too small, and also have the non countersinking issue to contend with if you can't get a plate to fit the m5 system.
I suspect that if you went to a shop and had a look at the plate for the new channel you could determine whether it could be altered if there isn't an M5 specific plate available.
