Bottom Line:   
I bought pre-amp 3 months ago. I had listened to several pre-amps in this price range, none of them had the control and precision over the music like the Rotel. The bass is more defined, drums and guitars sound very natural, but horns and piano are off the hook. I use this pre-amp with a Rotel Rb-1552 stereo amp, and I tried several sets of speakers and they all sound Great! If you can get tha chance, demo these against others in a similar or higher price range you will notice the difference. Trust me the demo is free!!!

Bottom Line:   
I bought this preamp to replace my old Citation, which finally ran its course. This preamp is wonderful. The transparency and clarity is better than my old Citation and the unit has all of the functions one would want. I have it hooked up to my B&W Active 1 speakers and the sound is smooth and natural with no coloration.

This is my first Rotel product, and I am very impressed. You don't have to spend a fortune to get great audiophile sound our equipment.
