Hello and help (Rotel or Denon amp)

Hello everybody!

I'm new here and in hi-fi world. I'd like to ask you some advices for an amp upgrade.

A couple of years ago I made my first, very economic system: Nad 3225pe / B&W 685 s1 / Pro-ject Debut Carbon

I bought every piece as used. Now I want to upgrade and I found two interesting amps near me (Milan, Italy):

Rotel ra 12, new, 600€ (or maybe a little less)

Denon 1500r mk2, near mint, 450€

It's an investment for me and I want something durable, with a phono stage. I think the ra12 would be nice, it has an integrated dac too and I listen to vynil and mp3 (at the moment I plug my computer to the aux connection). But above all I'm searching for an amp that sounds good with my speakers (or bigger ones, maybe another upgrade in another couple of years).

I listen to all kind of music from jazz to rock and electro.

What do you think?

Thank you!

Post in hifi section, I don't think many people venture down here.

In answer to your question, I would go with the Rotel, it will work great with your B&W's.
