    Hi Guys,

    Could I get some thoughts and comments about one over the other?
    They'd be running Paradigm Studio 60s, CC, and ADPs using a Denon 3802 as a pre/pro.

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    I can't comment on the Rotel but I can on the parasound. I added the 1205 to my setup and demoted my HK 525 which is 70 x 7 to a pre/pro. The differnce was really astonishing. I was driving some Boston VR35's and a V14 which are fairly efficent. I didn't exepect to hear much of difference because I originally bought the amp for some future speakers at the time. I was pleasantly surprised. My 1205a may be up for sale in the next week or two.

    They are both excellent amps and you wouldn't be able to find a great difference between the sound of the two. The Parasound might be a tad more laid back. If I were deciding between the two my criteria would be price as they both would make you very happy.

    Best of luck.

    Aaron,

    I'm thinking $725 plus shipping. The amp was purchased brand new less than a year ago with receipt. Comes with all materials and packaging and a full warranty card that has not been filled out. I just got a B&K 7270 and I have a friend that wants to demo the 1205 with his setup before I decide to sell it on the open market. I will know for sure if it is available next week.

    Just curious Terry, but how did the 1205 stack up to the 7270. Could you please elaborate on why you decided to change amps? Sorry Aaron as its slightly off topic. Terry you can reply me in PM if you like.
