While the idea of having room correction processing built into anintegrated 2-channel amp is indeed appealing, reading of the problems with the hk990 have me worried and thinking that maybe the technology is still abit too new.
My strategy was to buy an integrated amp with bass/treble controls AND with pre-out/main-in jacks. This way, once prices come down on eq devices, i can borrow a unit from a local dealer, insert it b/w pre and main amp to see if I like the changes it makes to how my system sounds. For now, basic tone controls give me some measure of control.
