Sherwood has updated his receiver test chart with the TS-990s:

He also talks about initially testing the Flex 6000 series in this video:

Many guys like to beat others over the head with how high their shiny new toy ranks high in the Sherwood list results.  It is funny to see how many guys that live and die by the Sherwood tests are now back-pedaling when the radio they just paid $8000 for does not even make it into the top ten (TS-990s).  Now the same guys who thought the Sherwood list was their bible are saying the the results should only be loosely used as a guide and it does not tell the whole story about the Kenwood.

Can you give us an example of where we might see an example of this backpedaling? Sounds fun.

Look in the TS-990s Yahoo group for one.  Google is your friend.
