That's a pity...I would love posting some pics right now...

The only "issue" is the time you have to wait to see all that (it has to warm up over a hour to show what I said. The Accuphase was faster in this point). The bottom line is I don't regret the change, even paying a very high price...
Have you changed the standby options at all? There are 3 levels of standby mode, each one powers down different parts in standby mode. I leave mine in the mode that shuts down most of the amp and draws less power in standby mode. In the mornings I turn it on and stream background music while I work so it is always fully warmed up once I want to do any real listening.

Glad you are liking the 585, it really is an amazing integrated amp. I keep intending to play with the crossover to see if that makes a difference, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

I haven't tried to change the standby mode. Thanks to remind me this possibility. I think it will help to warm it up more quickly.
I will also try to change some configurations to see what happens with the sound quality. Until now, what surprised me most was the clarify mode. I wasn't expect significant changes...I was so wrong about it...

Best regards,

Renato

Considering what you paid for your 585, $25 to be able to post pic's and the other benefits of being a subscriber (access to the classifieds, etc.) seems a very small penalty.
Best of luck with your 585.
