I'm playing around with the idea of replacing my Outlaw
Audio RR2150 to the HK990 for my 2.1 music only system.
I'm looking for some input and feedback. When I originally
Set up the system I wanted the HK990, but it was beyond
My budget. I "settled" for the Outlaw and have been pleased
With its performance.
Paradigm Studio 40's v4
Paradigm DSP3200-12 inch sub with PBK(perfect bass kit)
HK DMC1000- hard drive based system with about 450 CD's
Ripped in lossless format. (WAV)
Sony cdp595 5 disc SACD changer
Outlaw rr2150 with analog bass mgmt

Roll top desk. No other room treatments.
I have the analog bass mgmt set to 80hz for the Paradigms.

Never addressed by HK with an update. I read thru the report,
But about half of it is over my head.
Several folks have reviewed the unit and have gushed about
It's performance. Call me a stickler for details but I found some
Of the problems with the EQ concerning.
From what I have learned on these forums...getting a good flat
Bass response can be difficult to achieve. With my sub I know
I have that covered to my satisfaction.
Thanks for reading, let me know what you think.
