ROTEL RB 1070 Amplifiers

4.4/5 (25 Reviews)


Product Description

The newest interpretation of a classic Rotel award-winning power amplifier design, the RB-1070 continues the tradition of oversized toroidal transformer and high capacity power supply. In addition, Symmetrical Signal Trace circuit topol-ogy assures the precise interchannel timing clues necessary for pinpoint stereo reproduction. At 130 watts per channel (20 Hz to 20 kHz @ 0.03% THD into 8 ohms), the RB-1070 is more than capable of meeting the challenges of even the least efficient loudspeakers. An internal bridge option provides truly prodigious 390 watt out-put capability. Front panel LED status indicators show power, protection, and bridged mode for instant system analysis. And a separate input and output for 12 volt "trigger" signals increases flexibility by allowing the amplifier to be totally integrated into even the most complex remote-controlled systems.

Bottom Line:   
Just bought this amp today attempting to add more power than my RB-970mkII has. Hooked up the 1070 and immediately noticed a difference. Unfortunately it was worse, much worse. Put the 970 back in and am willing to part with the 1070 if you are interested. I rated this amp one star because it doesn't sound good in my system consisting of a Mac 220 pre amp and CDM9NT speakers. It may very well be a great amp with other components, just not mine. The 970 is very musical, was hoping the 1070 had the same character but just higher power. Owned the 1090 several years ago, which was pretty good. Believe it or not the best sounding Rotel I've heard so far is the little 930ax. More power doesn't mean better sound all the time.

I have had this amp for four years, never any problems what so ever. Got it new at Audio Visions. It sounds outstanding, movies and definitely music compared anything in its price range and above. I would not sell or trade it. Thanks Rotel youve done it again!!!!

finally, an amp that can drive B & W speakers! i could never understand why the music sounded 'not good' on B & W speakers with Marnatz or any other receivers... finally got the rotel combo of amp and pre amp and behold, awesome!!! these can drive B & W like a horse..and no fatigue with speakers because Rotel delivers pure music every itme according to the recording!

If possible, and if time permits, I'd like to thread 4 yellow rubberrings around my husbands erect manhood and walk naked through the streets of an high-income neighbourhood. In summer of course, or else the rubberrings might fall off.
