Well I have had my new Rotel 1075 in house for a couple of weeks and thought it was time to share my experience’s for both the amp and the Denon 3803 as a pre/pro. Speakers Fronts- CDM 9NT’s Surrounds- CDM 7NT’s Center- CDM CNT Sub- SVS 20-39PC+ CD/DVD- Denon 1600 Let me first state that I had always felt the Denon by itself sounded pretty decent especially in movies but 2 channel I felt was lacking something, not loudness just depth. So enter Rotel 1075 beast. (I was contemplating the 1080 as well but that was in a previous thread but decided to get the 1075 now and the monster 1090 later this fall) First impression- This amp is a monster and heavy I scurried to hook it up and did a quick cal with the internal test tones (to lazy for Avia at this point) Switched the Denon to PD, Sub off, and tossed in Steely Dan. Wow I am thinking what’s that noise, wait a minute that is the sound of guitar strings and tight bass, and normally I would leave the SVS on! I was hearing things I have never heard before, no kidding no hype just deep full sound, Okay lets turn it up a little and it wasn’t getting louder just sounding better. Before at this level with the Denon it felt loud and a bit fatiguing after awhile. Right away my wife was sitting at the bar and said that sounds great! Ok time for some multi-channel…..DSOTM…Hell yea now my 7NT’s and CNT are getting into the act. My wife and I sat and listened to all of our favorite music over a bottle of wine that evening. To be honest I used to listen to a lot of music and movies but recently it has been music I just can’t get enough, my wife will come downstairs for a beer and I will be sitting in the sweet spot with big grin on my face. I am not sure what I am more happy with the Amp or the CDM’s no really it is as if I upgraded my speakers too, I had no idea what I was missing and really thought it sounded great before and it did all my friends thought so too. As far as the Denon as a Pre/Pro I once again think it sounds tremendous, I bought the 3803 knowing I would getting some off board power. The features that the Denon has fits into my needs right now but will soon be bringing a 1066 home for an audition I can’t imagine that it will provide a such an improvement actually I am looking more forward to the 1090 this fall….I may have to push that up a bit. But what do I know I am clueless!
