    Hi all, I need a little advice. I'm currently "rebuilding" my ht setup. I have been given the opportunity by my local hi fi dealer to get a good deal on a Rotel RSP-1066 pre-pro (I love it, by the way!). I also have a good friend who is selling off a handfull of Marantz MA-6100s, with promise of a "good deal" here, too. I suppose I'm in good deal heaven, but does this seem like it'd be a good combo?

    My speaker choice is sort of up in the air right now, but probably some B&Ws.

    Thanks!

    Marantz would go well with B&W's and those monoblocks have a very musical sound. I think you should be happy with the combo.

    The MA 6100`s are very good.

    I have a 1066 and I've tried it with Marantz's MM9000 with B&W's CDM SE's and it sounds pretty good.It should be a good match...[​IMG]

    The MA6100's are great. I have a bunch of them. In fact I'm looking at doing the same thing with the 1066 so please let me know how it sounds when you get it.

    Shameless plug:
    For anyone interested, I have 4 Marantz MA-700's (THX Ultra rating) for sale in the classifieds section. They are the big brother to the 6100. Rated at 200 watts.
    Sorry for the interruption. [​IMG]
