Bottom Line:   
This is a £400 pre power combination. Auditioning this against other more expensive amplifiers such as Arcam alpha 9 showed how good this Rotel is. While cheapest in the group it showed a very confident, clean and punchy sound compared by others costing twice as much. The only argument here is that others might prefer a more relaxed sound, not that the Rotel is harch or dry. Infact it is warm, tight and clean sounding. One big advantage is the possibiliy of upgrading either by biamping or bridging. For only about £200 more you can bridge with another power amp resulting in a total of 180Watts.
