    Thinking on finally purchasing the Rotel 1075 amp today for $850. What do you think? Will be driving the Polk LSi series with this guy. Enough amp for these 4 ohm speakers?

    I love my 1075, but am driving 8 ohm speakers.

    Go here and click on *Contact Rotel* and ask them the same question.

    Ditto what Geoff said.
    I paid $1k for a silver one, for $850 I'd JUMP on it!
    Good luck.

    Thanks guys for the feedback.

    Yea is good for 4 ohms...200 x 5. LSi's are 88 sensitivity but should be no problem. Find out shortly.

    Amps deliver more power into lower ohms. A possible problem is that the lower the ohm rating, the more difficult the load on the amp. Most decent quality separate amps are stable into 4 ohms though. Should not be any problems driving those speakers.

    Everything you need to know about ohms is right here.

    Its 120w x 5 at 8ohms and 200w x 5 at 4 ohms so he was correct in his statement.

    Nick V, interesting read. Thanx for the thread. Funny how speakers and related electronics work. Not too long ago I used to think doubleling the amp's wattage output would double the volume. It would only be 3dB. Really not much at all.
