I replaced my 2003 B&K Ref 30 prepro with the new Rotel. I spent the last few days rewireing my cabinet eliminating some older pieces and adding HDMI to replace all the component video needed with B&K. Got rid of many cables last week in preparation for arrival of Rotel. Last night I hooked up the Rotel, configured the inputs, and ran my SPL meter to set up my 7.1 system. All the settings worked great, sounded great, from Blu Ray Lossless codecs to Phono stereo analog. My B&K really did a fine job for awhile but not like the Rotel. I listened to several sources and loved it. I have not yet set up the Bluetooth dongle for playing my iPhone music and a few other small tweeks to clean up small details. Anyway, I think Rotel has hit a home run with the new prepro, at least for me.
