Haven't noticed it mentioned, but the future HK amps look to incorporate a form of room eq in their amps. It's called Ezyset/EQ I believe. I have no idea how good or bad it'll be or how it's implemented. Just saw it following someone elses link to future news from HK. If HK get it right and nobody else uses it for a while (but I'm sure Denon will), it could produce an interesting technology battle in the future. HK have the great advantage of having Lexicon in their stable. What a great position to be in. For me, it'll mean L7, Room EQ, all the extra toys and whistles like PL IIx etc. I'm only after a processor, and until I can buy into a Naim or Arcam, and as long as it sounds good, it looks very promising.
