|I am trading up all my Rotel gear. I recently acquired an Arcam FMJ cd33 which replaced the Rotel 1072. The speakers are B&W 704 and the amp/preamp are Rotel 1070s. Can anyone recommend a good amp/preamp to match the Arcam CD and B&W speakers? |
I recently auditioned the McCormack DNA-125 and RLD preamp. It was nice but seemed to have a neutralizing quality, somehow masking what I thought were some of the best characteristics of the CD player. When I still had the Rotel CD player I auditioned the new Krell 400 integrated. The presentation of the music was fantastic, but I thought that, perhaps because it was an integrated, the sound was constrained, poor instrument separation. So I began thinking that a used Krell KAV 250 with requisite preamp might be the way to go.
Any advice? Thanks, RP
