    Rotel amps as a pre-amp

    Yes, never thought of such a combination myself, but was an opportunity too good to pass to try it. Yes, the B&W are the original ones. Was made in England and so much nicer looking too with the little dome outside the box. Ended up making a little shelving rack too:

    Rotel amps as a pre-amp

    Just for anyone's information. I ended up with a second-hand Linn Majik Kontrol as a pre-amp to the Rotel RB 1552 Mk ii power-amp hooked up to B&W 703 Speakers and I must say this is an excellent combination!

    No longer combination sale and a price drop!
  5. @a_recording I think you're right. I have the A-35 as well, but only the A-40 can be used as a USB DAC.

    Combination discount with the Dali Blue Series speaker set (see my other post): $1000 for the whole set.

  8. Found the manual: Dali blue if that helps.
  9. You can tilt the tweeter slightly for a small adjustment, but that is up to around 20 degrees. You might be right if you use the rear on a book shelve with the tweeter upwards, it affects the sound imaging.
  10. When placing the rear speakers on the wall, the tweeters will be facing downwards, projecting towards ear-level. You can use these rear speaker in a book-shelf but then you would put them upside down with the speakers facing upwards and with the grill mesh flipped. I've only taken a picture with them upside down such I would not damage the tweeter.

    Rotel amps as a pre-amp

    @stereo coffee Thanks for the message. Now you got me really excited about LDRs. Seriously considering the DIY kit!

    Thanks, @sillygogo1, you probably see something familiar back in the photos 🙂 Works a treat! I've also put a Dali 5.1 speaker set for sale, and I can probably do a combo deal if anyone is interested in both.

    Rotel amps as a pre-amp

    Hmm, that's an idea. Perhaps a passive pre-amp might work for me then, like a Khozmo Acoustic? No tone-control (as pure as the artist intended), just a basic source selection and attenuator.
