    Hello, I'm looking at doing a 2 channel for the living room, and went to the "boutique" last night to check stuff out. I was looking at the rotel 1070pre/pro but the sales guy was really trying to steer me to the Bryston B60, which sounded better, but was playing on B&W CM4's as opposed to the rotel hooked up to 602's. Then there's the Blue Circle CS, which reviewed really well at soundstage! in that price but I haven't heard them.

    I liked that you could separate the pre/pro on the bryston, but apparently you can pre out on the blue circle for an extra $75.

    The rotel combo will have more power, but I probably wont use it all anyway.

    So what should I get?

    If I may, I'll give you a couple of other options you may want to consider. Not that I think that there is anything wrong with any of the stuff you're looking at. But, these are a couple of brands I personally prefer that you may want to try and listen to.
