He was positive on the RSP 1070, but very much down on the RMB 1575 saying for music it simply did not produce detals anywhere near as clear and good as his Parasound AB class amp.
Im not even sure how he isolated what he thought he was hearing in the RMB 1575 and not the RSP 1070 since he was reviewing both together as one set up? Anyone else familiar with his review or have comments on these two Rotel components.
I'm not sure how he separated the functions either, but I am totally happy with the 1575 for music, using Yamaha RX-A2000 as the processor. There are limited options where I live for testing, but what I was able to hear was usually more expensive. I happened to be offered a very good deal, so the decision was easier, but I would likely have picked the Rotel in any case.
