Welcome. That’s ridiculous, what you read. Amplifiers don’t listen to music to decide what style it is, they just make it louder!Unfortunately i I did't have an opportunity to listen them, relied only on recommendations.
As for the Rotel.. read on other forums that it doesn't perform well in playing alternative music (mids, distortion)
rubbish written about the Rotel I think.heya 🙂
i'm based in Mariupol, Ukraine
btw, chatting right now with the hi-fi shop assistant and he recommends to buy Advance Acoustic X-i50BT instead of Rotel a10 (the argument is better energy for the same price)
also wdyt about these models:
It's a cliche because more often than not the synergy is there, the fact that one reviewer didn't like it is neither here nor there.It's almost a cliche to pair Rotel and B&Ws, when a good number of other amps are available. And one reputable hifi reviewer explicitly cautioned against pairing the 606S2 with the Rotel A11 Tribute.
Why not try an Audiolab 6000A for example? Or any number of NAD amps too?
That's a big increase over what it costs in the UK, how much is the NAD that @manicm recommended, can you get that where you are?Audiolab 6000A a bit out of budget (almost $1300 here)
Arcam FMJ39 second hand selling for £500-£600 very good conditionHi everyone!
Recently got B&W 606 speakers, bought Pro-Ject Debut III turntable, collected 40 vinyls atm, but still can't choose amplifier
Mostly will be listen to metal, hardcore.
Budget: up to $700
Thanks a lot in advance for the recommendations!
I saw this video months ago - he thinks the 606S2 is a great speaker but emphasises amp matching and room placement.Here are som amps he might or might not use, the video's can help op by making him focus on the highs, making shure he get's an amp and speaker cable, the last thing before the speakers (in case he needs differenet,new speaker cable) with as less fatigue, sharp,pronounced highs as possible, something non analytic and bright
