Something I owned liked a lot more in the same system was the Benchmark DAC3 (included analog inputs and volume) + AHB2 amp. It was so clear and quiet. The DAC was better too.
I have heard a few Hegel’s at demos, not the model you referred too. The lowest model I heard was the Rost,
and I thought it was better than the Peachtree I owned. If you can, I would do some research on the new Hegel 390 integrated, it is supposed to be close in ability to the Hegel 590 integrated. I have heard the older Hegel 360 (likely cheap now used) and it was better than the Rost.
