Musically, yes, very good. But not in a listening room if that's what you have in mind. The fans would drive you crazy.

Come and get my big Yam if you want to have a play Bob.

I've heard similar things (the P7000, like Jerry had) driving Tannoy dual concentric monitors - certainly full of detail and speed in combination and not sounding harsh other than being probably well over 100db in a 3m spaced stereo pair. Playing electronica and is a great sound to experience.

Was while setting up stage for a modern dance show at a large theatre. Real free space positioning in total darkness should be the goal for audiophiles - much better 3D-ness and mental imagary than anything I achieve at home (and no neighbours to worry about).

Yep, I went thru quite a prolonged phase (for me, i.e. a few months) of trying different Yamaha pro power amps.

Detailed and a bit lean, they sounded good but the multi-100W jobs didn't sound as powerful as the specs led me to expect.

One of them (7000?) had fans that cut in when the going got heavy, and yes, they were audible - I'd imagine they'd be on FULL all the time for you, Bob. ;-)
