Rotel RA-1570 to Ayre AX-7e

I've currently got an Rotel RA-1570 integrated in front of Vandersteen 2Ce Sig IIs and I'm debating purchase of a used Ayre Ax-7e vs waiting to save. Anyone have thoughts on what to expect? The room is 13 x 23. 
The tape out is a fixed line-level output, so the downstream amp will have to be an integrated or you'll need a pre.

Biwired from the Ayre terminals to Vandersteen is a bit tricky (I have the AX-5 Twenty / 3A Sigs) but doable. It's actually recommended in the 3A Sig manual to biwire this way anyway,

I agree the Ayre is a major step up. My dealer let me borrow it while the AX-5 was back in Boulder getting the Twenty update. I was very impressed.

No matter the price, Ayre seems to make top notch gear.
yage, thanks I have an old integrated to use as long as turning on tape out doesn’t interrupt the AX-7 output to main.

Can I put both spades under the speaker connection or would I have to re-terminate to have a single upstream spade?
You can double up on the amp end with no problems. If I'm having new cables made, I do have them terminate both pairs at the amp end. It does make it easier, but you can do it either way. Also, make sure you use 1/4 inch spade connectors. Anything bigger won't fit in the barrier strip.
