I'm able to audition Marantz, CA and NAD so I'll give them a shot...
No for that specific Rotel though, nobody imports the Rotel RA-04.
I've heard Harmon Kardon and Yamaha in that price range and I thought they weren't too bad, was just wondering if there was anything else worth a try?
I have heard a Rotel RA-05 and funny that you ask cause it was played through the iQ3's...and a matching Rotel CD player.
So far, that's the best combo I've heard.
They sounded pretty good compared to the Wharfdales and Tannoy's I heard played through other systems...
The standmount B&W 600 series wasn't launched then...unfortunately
