I have been trying out an Integra 7.2 to match my Paradigm speakers (monitor 7, cc-370, mini-monitors, pdr-10 sub), but I feel it is too bright for my speakers. Things sound good in THX mode for movies, but music and playstation 2 games can make the ears bleed! Unfortunately, all I can do is exchange for store credit so I have a choice of Denon or Rotel. I had the Denon 3802 previously. It was great for music, but a little dull for movies. I guess I would rather have the dullness than listening fatigue. My other choice is going seperates. I can either add a Rotel RMB-1075 120*5 watt amp to the Integra or return the integra and add a Rotel Pre-amp. I'm looking for a warm, but detailed sound. Is the Rotel sound warmer or brighter than the Integra? Is it worth the extra $500 for the Rotel pre-amp? Thanks for any help!!!!
