I feel it is a toss up between the two you asked us to look at for you. I have heard some 590's on the air and when you get them set up well, they sound good. I have played with the TS590's and Icom 7410's at HRO as well as in friends shacks. I went to HRO intending on buying an Icom 7410 and an Ameritron HF Amp. I came home that day with the Icom IC-7600. Had to wait a while to get my amp, but the wait was well worth it because I ended up with a bigger and better amp.
