My old Kenwood amp finally gave up the ghost a couple of months ago and so the search for a new amp/system began. I really liked the idea of either the Arcam Solo or the Linn Classik. I auditioned the Classik a month ago and was very impressed. Today I went to Audition the Solo, have to say that the Classik has the definite edge in my opinion. Anyway, I ended up not getting a Classik or Solo – as after taking the advice of the sales guy I had a listen to the Rotel RA06. I found the Rotel to be excellent, very clear top and mid range with a tight bass, the Solo was impressive but I found it was a little ‘messy’ in the bass area when the volume was cranked up. The speakers that sounded best with the Rotel at the audition were the B&W 685’s which I am seriously considering buying…. My question is what other speakers would work well with the RA06 and would be worth auditioning? Anyone know what pairs particularly well with Rotel kit other than B&W? Also, seen a couple of articles claiming the Rotel RCD 06 is not great for price – any suggestions for a good CD player (£300 range) to pair with amp? Any help/opinion appreciated.
