Had a few hours to set up and play with the 990.
I ran the ezseteq and started listening to different kinds of music and playing with the eq's.
I pushed it hard running it in the -10 to 0 range for a couple hours.
I could cook a pizza on this thing, I have limited area on left and right, but with two ac infinity fans on top it was still in the 130 degree range.
I have Klipsch speakers which with my two previous amps Marantz and B&K my ears would get fatigued after a listening session like this one. This was not the case with the 990. I even upped the tone control slightly on the treble. Not sure if it was ezseteq or just the 990 but my two channel set up has never sounded better.
With the output of my 7ii's I have zero desire to add a sub in the mix. Man can the 990 make those dual 10's pound.
I had planned on putting this in my main system with the bypass, but with the heat this thing shells out, I will just keep it set up to the side and use my amp switcher.
I am very very happy with this beast. I hope to get a few more sessions in shortly and continue to play with it and it's features.
I picked up an ERC 3000watts step converter as this 990 is the 220 version. With all shipping from over seas and the converter I pulled it in for under 1k$. I missed the last one on ebay that sold for $1400, so saved myself 4-500 going with the UK version.
