Dang. I remember when you were selling them. Gutted i didnt have the money for a 360....I’d have to check but I believe the last H90 was sold in 2019. No more as the H90 has been replaced with the H95 also @ a RRP of £1500 btw. Besides which we’re also no longer supporting them.
If it's too dear, I think the CXN v2 has the same functionality. And also I'd look into other brands as well, before making any purchase.Thanks for your answer.
It's probably worth the extra money on a preamp / dac. Others are recommending it to me too. I'll check Cambridge even if it's a little higher than my budget.
Correct me if I'm wrong, it doesn't really matter how good the current is if the tonal balance isn't right then its no good for the PMCs.I've got a lot of experience with Rotel amplification and their watts are not their for a marketing show. They have current rich power rather than current starved wattage. In the RB-870BX you've got a rock solid engine. So my advise will be to hold on to the RB-870BX and look at adding a streaming pre amplifier such as Auralic's Altair. The Altair should offer an uplift in performance throughout the fq. range and regardless of the genre of music you listen to. You should be able to find a demo or a used Altair at or within your budget.
It's a two way street. With all things being equal it's preferable to avoid components where as the wick is turned and the system gets louder but not much else happens other than then system sounding lacklustre. It's akin to the lights being on but no ones at home. Anyway, like I've said before it's better to have current rich power rather then current starved marketing and brochure impressive but ultimately somewhat weedy 'paper' watts.Correct me if I'm wrong, it doesn't really matter how good the current is if the tonal balance isn't right then its no good for the PMCs.
Nice one. I've no experience with Quad equipment or Hegel. Presumably you use the Hegel with the actives as a preamp, or are they two separate entities?Hi PP
I use Kef Actives. With the Hegel 120 I used Quad S2's.
The H90 has a couple of analogue in's, the 120 also has a set of balanced ones.
you do realise it's about 3 times his budget?Good timing.
How about getting a demo of one of these?
I demo’d a much older amp and source from the same brand back when the GB1’s first came out. I thought it was a lovely combination, especially with classical
