    I heard the H590 Wednesday on Vivid Audio Kaya 45s.
    It was so good that I might buy it in the near future.
    It bettered a 30K stack of separates by a large margin.
    Hegel H590 + a pair of good speakers and you have a terrific system for 25-30K!

    I think we have the best selection of integrated amps in the country and the Hegel 590 is right up there with the best of the best.

    Mike, an awesome trio!
    The Hegel, T+A and Gryphon are also my top 3 integrated amps in the 10-25K range.

    I've not heard the H30, just compared DAC'S. The 590 could be a good move. I have a friend who drives KEF ref 5's with the 590 so I believe the 590 should have plenty of power.

    Nice line-up there Mike! I'm looking for a new integrated to drive my KEF Ref 5s and the 590 comes highly recommended, it seems the Hegel is a good match with KEF. I'm also considering the Gryphon Diablo 300, but not able to demo it with the speakers. How do you think it compares to the 590?

    That rack of amps is extremely impressive. All heavy weight stuff figuratively and literally.
