Confession: I only like Norah Jones because so many others told me to
For myself, I didn't know who Norah's father was for years, and after I found out, I could not have cared less. Had I known, it wouldn't have been a plus. Erik, I tend to disagree. And whether or not the press was on her side is moot. You don't s...

Sure, that's probably why Norah Jones won 5 Grammys for Come Away with Me.

With the Peter Malick group, before she was famous. There's more to her than 'softness'.    
Luxman L590AX vs.590AXii
Thanks, guys. I guess the other deal for me is the limited number of these available, since they're now discontinued. Not sure what Luxman's plans are at this point.  
Dedicated Line - Things to consider
@jea48 , I watched Mike Holt's video on multi wire branch circuits. Considering that other conductors, grounds, etc, are required to be marked in some fashion when they aren't what they appear to be, why aren't neutral wires in a mwbc scenario req... 
Dedicated Line - Things to consider
@immatthewj , I wasn't attempting to single you out, apologies for that. I just look at this in a pretty linear way, electricity flowing downstream from the panel, even though that's not a true representation. I'm not an electrician, but have work... 
Dedicated Line - Things to consider
It's just semantics, but a lot of these posts would be easier to read if they were worded a little differently. Most professionals don't think of wiring as originating at an outlet in a room and going to the electrical panel, quite the opposite.  
Luxman L590AX vs.590AXii
Enjoy it.  
Luxman L590AX vs.590AXii
Personally, I'd buy the newer version, if nothing else, it's newer. I don't know what your situation is, money-wise, nor the cost of either. I'd opt for a 4 year old amp over a 10 year old one. Either amp will drive those speakers, I think there's... 
Luxman L590AX vs.590AXii
Found this also - Differences Between Luxman L-590AX and L-590AXII In order to achieve power without sonic compromise, Luxman implemented its ODNF 4.0 drive circuit utilizing a three-parallel push-pull structure with three-stage Darlington. A Lu... 
Luxman L590AX vs.590AXii
The main difference, as I recall, is a beefed up output stage in the MkII. Edit - Actually, it was the power supply - "The power supply uses a large power transformer with an E-shaped core and a thicker primary wire, as well as eight buffer capac... 
Wiring 2 outlets to 2 dedicated 20 amp circuits with a single 10/3 electrical wire.
What a mess? Did you actually read the part where jea48 explained how your new work could easily be converted to one dedicated circuit in about 10 minutes? Then add a second one, and you're finished. You're out some additional money due to the fir... 
Luxman 590AX II Break-In
@ghdprentice I actually own the Luxman L-590AX (not the newer MkII version). Early on, I read everything I could find on the amp, which isn’t a lot. Here’s just one item https://beterbeeldengeluid.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/HFN_Luxman-L-590A... 
Luxman 590AX II Break-In
The 590 isn't low power. It will put out 90w/channel into 8 ohms, and 160w into 4 ohms. It's not a monster amp, but it's more powerful than Luxman's specs would suggest. Wish I had anything else to offer.
