Just order a pair of B&W 705+HTM7, thinking of getting pre/power to drive them. NAD T163+T973 or Rotel 1068+1075. Have anyone had experience or audition them with B&W705+HTM7? Thanks for your advices.

I have a similar dilema. I have a pair of Snell Type D speakers - these speakers tends to be bright.

I am looking at the Rotel equipment as well, but have not been able to find anyone that owns it to hear their opinion.

Also, what do you think of the Rotel equipment for
2-channel stereo-only listening?

I think their 2 ch is good, NAD too. I just order the Rotel 1075+1068 today, will be delivery to my place tomorrow, cant sleep tonight !!!

If your budget is tight and want good sound, Rotel is the way to go. They are almost as good or the same as parasound and around 4 timer cheaper in prices. Go for Rotel, you'll be a happy man. I've done almost 6 month of reading mags, internet forums and auditions came to a conclusion that Rotel is the way to go. Good luck.

kiki,

Wouldn't the 1095 be a better amp than the 1075? Did you decide on the 1075 based on budget? I was thinking of getting the 1095.

For sure 1095 have more power, but to drive 705 and htm7 is enought. I will get another 3ch amp to drive 2 front in future when I get 2 more speakers. If your budget allow, get the 1095, you'll be happy.

Having been an owner of a Rotel RMB-1095 and now a NAD S-250, I can honestly say either brand would be enought to power your speakers. My speakers are Paradigm Studio(v3)40/20/570 which are 91-93db sensitive. Both amps had no problems powering the speakers to ear blisterning levels, though I do find the sound of the NAD to be more pleasing to the ears.

I'm also for the Rotel. I have demoed the B&W 7 series with the Rotel and it sounds really good. Go with the Rotel, you won't be sorry.

Cheers
Mike
