Never heard about Micromega... and Rotel I never owned. But I'm anyway happy with my Arcam avr550 as pre amp and my NAD m27 power amp. And I'm looking forward to my NAD m17v2 pre amp when it finally arrives (ordered it already this may). So I can recommend Arcam and Nad. Compared to the Denons (x7200wa, avr4810), yamaha and sony i had so far the Arcam and Nad devices are by far supperior. God I hate Denon... terrible built quality... but thats another topic.
