I recently purchased an RX-1052 to replace a dead NAD 7400. The Rotel unit sounds beautiful, and I auditioned it in the store A/B with a new comparable NAD. Now that I've had the unit home for a while (It's driving a pair of Jamo Concert VII speakers), I find that the bass is not as deep as with the 7400. My system has been down for a while waiting for this new unit, so my ear is not fresh, but I just find there's not as much low end. I also find myself turning the volume way up on the Rotel, whereas I never had to have the NAD up very high to get things going very loud. Is all of this my imagination, or does anyone else have experience/opinion about this. The only other difference is that my system is now in a much smaller room -- which I thought would only accentuate the bass response.
