Having heard the excellent 25s and 45s, but not yet the 90s, and knowing the Giya series (from the G4 till the G1 Spirit), I can say they'll sound very good, but not quite as good as the Giya series.

IMHO, no.

Every time I've heard them the Giyas have always sounded better as have (this is the controversial bit) the ovals.

At RMAF last year the Kayas I heard actually sounded a bit like… cones in an enclosure, which is something I never heard from the Giyas or Ovals (and is what first drew me away from planars.)

I'm sure they will sound very good with Mac's biggest integrated.
I also drive my Vivids with an integrated now.
Used separates before.
The Hegel H590 is a good match. Plenty of power.

The Kaya 90 gets close to the Giya Series in sound quality !
