I'm upgrading my cinema setup from a Yamaha RXV 1800 to Yamaha RXV 3800 and Yamaha DVD player to Yamaha Blu Ray player. Due to the new amp being capable of driving my speakers i won't be needing the power amp, Rotel RB 1070. What do i need to get to start the stereo setup. A preamp partnered with the Rotel power amp, i'd like to stick to the same components, Rotel. Would i be wasting my time and money by setting up my stereo sytem by getting another Rotel RB1070 power amp and connecting up in monoblock configuration? I'm a Paradigm speaker fan and would like to use bookshelf speakers. Any advice would be appreciated.
