Yamaha A-S700 is buyable for me but are you sur these are more interesting than cambridge amplifiers?Not a fan of the Cambridge audio CXA60 or 80 or higher then theses models with any Dali speakers as the Cambridge audio amplifiers are not a great match on a sonic level .
As the Cambridge amplifiers sound plain and boring with Dali speakers as i have had a demo with the CXA60 ,CXA80 and the top of the range amplifiers .
Yamaha is a better shout as you get the involvement , detail and sound stage but not sure how good the lower Yamaha models are but i would look at the Yamaha A-S700 , 800 but save the money to get theses models before wasting your money on second best because if you have a good amplifier it will really get the best out of those speakers on a sonic level .
I would say the Yamaha would be a better choice and you get 3 years warranty if you buy any Yamaha products but everyone's choices on what they think is good is different to everyone's personal choice .Yamaha A-S700 is buyable for me but are you sur these are more interesting than cambridge amplifiers?
You're welcomeMuch appreciated, the Rotel sounds hard to beat for the money even considering it's about 15 years old.
Expect my opinions soon......
Silver finish.You're welcome
The amp was released in August 2003 and i had first stock in Europe. I hate to state the obvious however please try and ensure you get an amp which is working fully to spec. right across the board. When all the ducks are in a row then boy can this amp sing
Btw, Black finish or Silver/Black finish please?
