    Is the wood on top? The 595 is wood all around, not just sides. I asked Luxman and this is what they told me. Maybe thatís why Accuphase costs more here! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Weíve noticed a bigger increase in performance using Roon. It went from a 7/10 to maybe an 8/10, while TAS remains a strong 10/10 for Sonics.

    in europe the "." and "," are reversed in numbers. so the stated frequency range in the audionet spec screenshot is: 0,00 - 700.000,00 Hz (-3db) ... ie: 0 - 70 kHz (-3db) let's just say there is no high end roll-off in the humbolt ;)
