Tim I have never had build up in the volume pot cause the unit to shut down where you have power cycle the unit to get it to work again. But what I have had seen with build up on the volume - balance or tone controls is a static sound that will co...

I agree with mofimadness4. Almost sounds like the Rotel doesn't have a proper ground causing static to be discharged through the electronics and not the case. 
Best amp for Raidho Speakers
br3098 I think you're mistaken. Dantex (parent company of Raidho) bought GamuT. 
Raidho C1.1 for metal/rock?
As a D series owner I would say for the sound you're looking for the XT series would be a better choice for the music you prefer. The XT3's are incredible and can rock. The C and D series offer more layers of resolution and are somewhat laid back.... 
What to do...What to do?

Have you ever changed speakers to expereince a different "soundscape" or presentation??
Yes it happened to me once. I was a super die hard Dynaudio lover (had C1 sig's). I thought they couldn't be beat as far as imaging - sound stage and detail. Then my local dealer took me to a clients home to hear a speaker he had on demo. That was... 
KEF blades 2 or Dynaudio C4?
@mountainsongAre the speakers going to be on the 12’ or 18’ wall? If on the 18’ wall I personally think either speaker speaker would be too much. On the 12’ wall either would be fine.Is there anyway you can demo the speakers? Both are really diffe... 
KEF blades 2 or Dynaudio C4?
@pdreher were your C2/4's the originals? I ask because I had the original C1's and later upgraded to the Signatures. The Originals did really need to be very loud to sound the best. The MKII/Sig's on the other hand sounded the best at mid levels. ... 
Anyone using a Class D amp w/ribbon tweeters?
I'm using an Aavik U300 with Raidho D3.1's. The highs IMO are spectacular.
