I own the 5350 and run a pair of Von Schweikert VR-1s. Not quite as demanding of an amp but not easy either. I am very very happy with the Creek. I didn't listen to the Rotel although a friend has similar separates from Rotel and is happy. I don't think you'll go wrong with either, but I wouldn't trade my Creek for anything else! I love it. I have a pair of Dynaudio 70s in another room and am tempted to try the Creek with them just for fun some day! It is very clean, quiet and detailed. It doesn't have a balance adjustment, but I don't mind about that. The headphone amp is quite good. It runs warm but not hot. It is heavy and very well made. Good luck!
