Yamaha 3010 vs Rotel 1077 Class D 7 Channel Amplifier

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm currently using a Yamaha 3010 to power a PSB Synchrony One Home Theatre 7.2 system.
I also have 2 B&W ASW675 subs crossed over at 60Hz. For 2 Channel Music I use an Arcam A38 to power the Synchrony Ones
sending a full range to the speaker. For watching movies (HT duties), I use the HT bypass mode on the Arcam, and power the remaining 5 speakers with the Yamaha.

My question.....I still own a Rotel 1077 7 Channel Amplifier that is in my closet.

Is it worth trying to simply use the Yamaha as a preamp/processor and use the Rotel as the amplifier, or do you folks think that the Yamaha with 2 Subs, can power the 4 ohm PSB speakers with ease?

Thanks in advance!

thats a pretty nice amp to have sitting in the closet! i can' t speak for the yamaha but as a rotel owner i have never been dissapointed with rotel performance. i would think even with a lower watt rating the rotel would still have more power than the yamaha and you should either pull it out of the closet or sell it to me!
