It all started with the following..
- lexicon mc-12
- anthem d1
-anthem d2v with ARC
-1st Rotel RSP 1570
-pioneer elite SC-07
-Pioneer Elite SC-37
- Yamaha RX-A3000
- AND NOW 2nd Rotel RSP 1570....
I found in my adventure, that every listed equipment above ALWAYS left me feeling like I need more EXCEPT for the Rotel..
In the back of my mind, I seemed to always go back what the Rotel Sounded like and compared it to the new toy I just bought...
My room has some nasty bass boom, so that was the main reason for letting the 1st rotel go.. I wanted to try the EQ in other products...
As good as all the above sounded (even ARC), the Rotel (even without EQ) sounded the best...
After this last purchase (yamaha RX-A3000), and it actually sounded very nice with my rotel amps, I still felt the longing for the Rotel..
So. I took the plundge and re-purchased the Rotel...
I could not have been happier... Even with the bass boom.. (I will try to correct with traps).
So, to my ears and fun with all the cool pre's out there costing $10,000 +/- ,
I just could not get the ROTEL sound out of my head...
Now I can live and enjoy my old friend, and one day when a new model comes out by Rotel, I will jump at it..
Speaking of any new models, do any of you feel that maybe one day they will include Internet and maybe EQ?
Either way, those would only be iceing on a perfect cake!!
Just my 2cents I thought I would share with you all...
