The 595 is better than the 590 on all counts. More detail and dynamics, better imaging while still maintaining the Luxman signature sound. It does put out more heat than the 590 though.

I still have my 900 combo (which is better than the 595) as well as my 590 at the office so I will keep the 595 and start another system at some point.

Congrats Greg! Glad you are liking the Luxman. I am currently adding to my modest Bryston stack but Luxman is very tempting (esp when seeing side by side).
