It sounds great, is great, and I'm VERY pleased with my $500 H/K 7550HD!! Hopefully I'll have many years of flawless operation.

If I could make one complaint, the front power light is REALLY bright, and the HDMI board fan is REALLY loud, louder than my w1070 projector fan. No whining or anything, just loud.

Thanks everyone for all the hep, with me luck for continued good operation.
Front panel light is adjustable. Press setup, then select system settings. Front panel dimmer is first selection. Set it where you want and your'e good to go. As for the fan noise that's one of the reasons for adding the fans. Mostly that HDMI board fan won't come on.

Fans are ordered, they are coming soon. Front panel set to 25% which helps, but the big white "I'M ON!!" light doesn't dim.
I will be relocating all equipment to a closet behind the seating position, so that should resolve the issue altogether. The fans in there will help keep it cool.

I run an external Adcom GFA-7400 Amp which will help keep the Harman Kardon cool.

Again, crossing my fingers for many many years of trouble free operation from the thing.

It's hard to love Martin Logans and 2.35:1 CIH at the same time...
