Its not really enthusiasm. I honestly love my 1098, the adcom was given to me a while ago. And i discovered it is a pretty nice, yet heavy, amp. The only problem is that ridiculous thump it makes when turned on...
However, in my pov technology moves, the 1098 and vp50pro while it is a nice combo, proved to be a bit buggy, especially since i use the vp50pro to enhance the image, but the audio is all processed via toslink or multi in by the rotel. This configuration is nice, but it creates some lipsync issues that cannot be corrected.
A few days go both the 4520 and the 1562 has been offered to me at a very very attractive price, of course the 4520 being cheaper.
I wanted a processor that could maintain a good sound quality, or better than the 1098 if possible.
Thats why I thought about the 1562, which would be used as pre/pro...
It would be nice to read more opinons, about this topic, i am very lost and i dont know what to do.
