    Hello, Just thought I'd post this, I have this Amp and have started to notice distortion mainly on my rear speakers. I Have the Tannoy HTS200 speakers.

    Anybody else having similar issues with distortion on this Amp. Or could tell me what might be causing it?

    Could it be the crossover settings on it, They are set to small as well. It wasn't playing that loud either.

    Could anybody help in deciding what setting's to have setup on my Amp. I Used to have the DG-910 no problems but this Amp since I've used it seems not as good, I'm now asking myself why did I change it.

    These are my specs for my speakers:

    I've sorted it, after fiddling around with the settings:D

    Had my rears pumped up too much on my amp. Just tweaked slightly.
