  1. Hi I have an old Rotel Ra211 from the early 80's I believe. I want someone experienced to have a look over it and give it a service. I really like this little amp and it seems to play nicely with some old B&W DM110's I have in my office. They also need a service but I might have a crack at that myself. Anyone know someone one here in the West that could have a look over the amp. It has been in storage for a bit but is in working order, except for the headphone output. Sometimes I hear a minor fuzz in one channel. Also very Minor distortion at medium volume but I guess that could be my speakers?? I am primarily using it for digital files via macbook pro through an Ifi Nano DAC. Any suggestions would be much appreciated Cheers Doug

  4. Hi folks, TL;DR: Any owners of the Rotel RA-12 who can share feedback on it? Specially if you're matching them with B&W 685s. Those of you in NSW: hope you're doing ok in the storm. I've been going back and forth between amp options to match the B&W 685 S2 I've set my sights on. So far I've looked at: Arcam FMJ A19 + standalone DAC Marantz PM6005 Rotel RA-10 + standalone DAC Rotel RA-11 Rotel RA-12 At this entry-level I'm operating at ($2k total), 50-70% of the budget should go towards the speakers, since that's where I'll get the most ROI. For that reason, I've ruled out the Arcam and Rotel RA-10, simply because with those options too much of the budget goes to the DAC, which is the 2nd least important part (after cables). However, I've found on eBay a Rotel RA-12 at a decent price ($739). It has built in DAC, 60w per channel...well enough to drive the 685s. However, I can't seem to find many reviews on it and the What HiFi review was a bit mixed. Anyone here using the RA-12 that has some feedback to share?
  5. Hi Im looking for some advice, after a recent post I have decided to upgrade my amplifier, for my system. Current setup is miniwatt n3 tube amp, project tube box ii, wharfedale 10.1 speakers and pro-ject debut with ortofon blue cart. Im just not getting the power i need to run the speakers to their full potential. I have narrowed it down to either the: rotel ra-10 rega brio r arcam fmj a19 If anyone has experience with either of these please let me know. Also is it worth paying almost double for the rega or the arcam over the rotel ? or should i buy the rotel and put the rest of the money into other gear etc ? If you have any other suggestions please also let me know. Cheers
  6. Hi folks, Come the next tax return time I am looking forward to adding my next component to my emerging stereo setup. I've just recently added a Rotel RMB 1582 mk2 which is presently tethered to my Denon AVR 3310 via the Denons preouts. My goal is to have my stereo system separate to my HT. Well that's not quite accurate as I plan to use the RCA and Balanced inputs on the 1582 to take a signal either from the Denon (RCA) or Pre amp (Balanced). Listening either to stereo or the HT setup will just be a toggle switch position change on the 1582. I've also replaced the previous floorstanders (Whatmough Audiolabs M30s) with the Whatmough P33i - yep - I'm a fan of their build/quality/sound. I've lusted after these puppies for many, many months and despite listening to other speakers in the price bracket, I just fell under their spell. Hence the addition of a power amp to give them a good dose of oomph. To keep the tonality of the new fronts in sync with the centre speaker, I've also lashed out on a new Whatmough centre that shares the same drivers as the P33s. Santa definitely came early this year. So with a good many months to go until Mr Taxman decides (hopefully) to throw some sheckles my way, I'm looking for ideas on a good Pre amp to buddy up with the 1582 with the option of also replacing my existing CDP - a Rotel RCD-06SE with a beastie one or two steps further up the quality ladder. Price wise, I'm looking between $1-$2K for the Pre and around $1K for the CDP. I am yet to be converted to the vinyl dark side and have instead invested in silver spinners with the last 12 months seeing many new additions attempting to slip past the admonishing gaze of my better half (well if I've got to give up riding motorcycles - I've got to replace one passion with another - that's how it works isn't it?). Digital music files might come into the mix at some point, but at the moment I'm happy popping jewel cases open. So the Pre doesn't necessarily need to be optioned up with every conceivable input. Your thoughts and suggestions will be much appreciated! Cheers, James
  7. Hello everyone, I am new to Hi-Fi but am just assembling my first (entry-level) serious system. I just bought a Rotel RA-1520 integrated amplifier and now I am on the lookout for a set of bookshelf speakers that would be a good match. This is for a 10m x 3.6m x 3m quite dead (mostly carpeted) open-plan space. The lady of the house has dictated that floorstanders are not an option. Ultimately I would also be looking to add a subwoofer to the mix to adequately cover the bass. At the moment I am just using a Pro-ject DAC box for input which I will also upgrade down the track. I was thinking to spend $AUD1000-1500 but could stretch to $2000 if there is a significant and justifiable increase in quality. I know that the only way to pick speakers is by auditioning them which I plan to do shortly. However, it would be very helpful to have a list of vetted options on which to focus. There is an incredible number of different options out there. It would also be helpful to get an Australian perspective given the different pricing and availability here. So far I've only listened to the Polk LSiM703 which I thought were excellent. A lot of people talk about B&W being a good match for Rotel (685, CM1, CM5). From other forums, KEF (Q300, R300, R100, LS50), Dynaudio (Excite X12, DM 2/6, DM 2/7), ATC (SCM11) and PMC (DB1i, twenty .21/.22) have also been recommended, though the latter are a little out of my league. If anyone could share their experiences with the above or suggest any other options, it would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Kind regards, Nick
  8. Match it with any of the power amps being sold here and you will have a killer 2ch system. Bought from Cleff Hifi in Melb in May 2013. Still under warranty (3 years), purchased in may 2013. Will provide receipt. Great sound. Wish I can find a HT receiver with a sound stage as good as this (have to take the risk!). Comes with original packaging and box, manuals, remote (never used), everything. Did not get to play it much due to watching movies instead of 2ch.\ RRP $ 850 Price $400 O. N. O. Photos speak for themselves. Pet, smoke, kids, free environment. Protective wrap is still on it. Small mark on top. Unnoticeable unless you put a very bright lamp pointing at it. Pick up in Ringwood (Victoria), I'm not a fan of shipping Hi Fi equipment but if you have a courier you trust we can organise something. Would prefer to sell it to a local buyer. My system has been slowly evolving from 2ch to HT and this preamp is now redundant. Need to sell to fund a good receiver. Specs can be found here: http://www.rotel.com/NA/products/ProductDetails.htm?Id=487&Tab=2&Pic=1 http://clefhifi.com.au/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=37&products_id=1184 Photos:
  9. I am chasing a Rotel 2 channel power amplifier. At this point I am open to suggestions re model etc.... Preference is for a black unit to match existing gear and smaller form factor. Also anything in the Perth area is good so we can avoid postage. Cheers
  10. I'm considering adding a power amplifier such as a Rotel RB-1562 to handle the front left and right channels of my 5 channel set up. Receiver is a Denon AVR-1313 and front pair of speakers would be either Kef LS50 or Dynaudio Excite X12. Would this be a worthwhile upgrade or should I head in a different direction?

  12. After reading many pages on the internet of Rotel's rcd991 getting the better of people with challenges to reliability, I took a stand and would not let it beat me. I have had the big Rotel for about 5 years and spent a fortune getting it from Greece to me in Malaysia. Why? because I Auditioned a Copland CD266 with dual BB pcm63p Dac chips and the controversial pmd100 filter chip. To this day I don't think I have heard a better disc player. So at the time I did not have the funds to buy and had to let it go. So armed with the knowedge of it's internals I scoured for a cheaper alternative with the same DAC chip and Filter. I came across the much unloved Rotel rcd-991ae in greece. I did pay way too much for it and the shipping but hey are we not all crazy when Hi Fi is concerned.? Once I got it home I listened to it for a few weeks and then decided I was under whelmed. At that point I decided to do something about it and Mod the hilt out off it. Enter Audio GD with 4 discrete op amps and a new clock, Jantzen entered the fray with some silver Output caps and Solen and Wima provided the added extras. After a few weeks of determined ignorance of a novice I finally had finished. Press Play and BINGO it was superb. I fell in love with this big chunk of Rotel metal and listened to it exclusively for weeks. I was 80% close to the Copland and I was a happy camper. After a couple of years of use It got pushed back off the favourites list by the modded duo of Marantz Cd5000's with the amazing Philips TDA1549 Dac chip and discrete op amp and New big Jantzen silver output Caps, and the Modded Marantz cd50 with Nos, discrete output stage etc.. The Audio GD NFB3.2 arrived and that was now the house favourite being driven by my Modded Pioneer DV989avi as a digital transport. Being the fair Hi Fi Father I am, I alternated between the players until my Rotel RCD991 started to behave like the petulant child it has been for so many people. I spent hours and hours inside it looking for why it sometimes would play CD's and sometimes would give me the finger with a "no Disc" message. Sometimes when it actually got going it would go into track skipping meltdown and then I would spend another full weekend of changing yet another laser and checking every capacitor and resistor there was. But to no avail it beat me.. Up until now. I have spent another day of research and discussions on this petulant child and read and read until I could read no more. Doing my best trouble shooting thinking on the Loo it Dawned on me. My enlightenment of the problem was a defining moment in my Amateurish attempts of days gone by. Armed with the soldering Iron and some spare parts pilfered from my now defunct Cambridge audio 540cv2, I changed the spindle motor and the laser motor and prayed that I had demonstrated enough determination to succeed. Load a disc, it reads the TOC straight up, press play and Music, beautiful music once more. Skip forward through a few tracks and tight and fast tracking once again!. I sit before you happily listening to my now Non belligerent Monster Rotel smiling and writing this little experience hoping that my Hi Fi Brothers owning this Player will not give up hope and not let this temperamental piece of Japanese mastery beat you.
  13. Item: Rotel RA-1520 Integrated Amplifier Location: 3130, VIC Price: Sale pending...$500 + Shipping Item Condition: Excellent, owned since new. Reason for selling: Move to a slightly different direction (tubes) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: I've had this amplifier since new and it has served me really well. It comes with original box and packaging, as well as the remote. I have a soft spot for this amp, as I've grown accustom to its sound. What Hi-Fi gave this amp 5 stars. It produces a solid sound, with a fairly wide soundstage and puts the listener in the middle of a concert hall. It has driven speakers from Usher to B&W to PMC without any complaint. I think its best partner will be speakers on the warmer side of neutral.

  16. I have an old Rotel RSX-1056 which is doing the DAC duty with incoming digital signals from Apple TV, Telstra T-Box and a cheap Blu-Ray player. The Rotel started struggling to identify the digital input (coax or optical) some time ago and now is failing less often than not. So, I'd like to upgrade to something that can handle the DAC duties for both 2.0 and 5.1 duties. I'm currently thinking of either: A. Oppo 105 into the analogue section of the Rotel RSX-1056, or B. New AVR for approximately the same price as the Oppo ($1200-$1500, e.g. Rotel RSX-1550) My main priority is two-channel sound quality. I'm currently running old Mission 734 floorstanders, looking to upgrade to something in the $3K range such as PSB Imagine T2. Some of the features of the Oppo 105 appeal, but really I can do everything I want at the moment via Apple TV and the crappy Blu-Ray player (I don't even own any Blu-Ray disks). I like the sound of the Rotel RSX-1056, and would hate to retire it just because of the digital section failing. I have been reading quite a bit on DACs lately and appreciate the difference they can make in a system so don't want to skimp there. Obviously I could add a stand-alone DAC later but this makes for a complicated living room arrangement. Music is generally ALAC files played (currently) via the Apple TV. I guess the main question is: Would the Oppo 105 DAC section thoroughly outshine a $1500 AVR DAC section, or would a one-box solution sound just as good? Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Item Condition: Used, but all in immaculate condition with no scratches etc., except for 1 ding to the corner of the rear wall speaker’s housing (not very noticeable) happened when installing . All amp gear is about 1.8 ish years old, the speakers I bought from my old man I am the second owner all ways been respectably powered and not trashed. Reason for selling: Life throws us some bumps in the road… And I am needing the money over the audio nirvana. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bankcheque etc. Extra Info: As all ways it would be nice to try sell it to someone as an entire kit to get them started in the world of Hi-FI & Home Cinema but I am keeping an open mind so for now I will float it as an EOI to test the waters on the off chance someone out there would buy the lot. Everything can be demoed still setup in my listening room I swear if someone was keen on an entire system and had the money to out lay at once I can guarantee one sit in the room and they would be sold! The Audiolab M-DAC needs a special mention if you’re in the know you will know its received a lot of hype and if you know more the guy that created and designed it all split away from audio lab and started his own company ‘LakeWest’ my M-DAC was sent to his workshop and he modified it to have a Home Theatre bypass and paid to have all resistors in the analogue audio stage replaced with Vishay Naked Z-foil’s as it was later apparent by John at lakewest the that china manufacturing process substituted resistors from the original design scope which degraded the sound quality, even though it was still awesome the replacement with the Z-Foils and re-worked power supply rail’s has taken it to another level!. The H/T bypass is great as I can have the M-DAC connected directly to my power amp and play music back in its purest form without any data manipulation (all bit-perfect) and the M-DAC its self really brings the music alive!, the modifications were not cheap as z-foils are expensive !, details below. MDAC L1 “MDAC internal PSU section upgrade (this upgrades 6 of the PSU supply rails around the ESS DAC, reducing modulation spurie by up to x1000 (40dB) around the ESS DAC).†MDAC L2 - which includes the L1 upgrade which my unit has. “Full rebuild (redesign) of the CROSS analogue stage, over 56 components changed in the Analogue section + MDAC L1. Major leap in sound quality. Vishay Naked Z-foil resistors (Toy/Fusion) During development/testing of MDAC L2, results have shown that certain components (resistors) can have a significant effect on sound quality when used in a feedback loop. This upgrade further enhances MDAC L2. Originally, only 4 resistors were considered to be critical, but the revelation around resistors itself led to the idea of replacing all "important" resistors in direct analog signal path by the Z-foil resistors.†You can no longer get your M-DAC modded by John because he's commenced work on the MDAC2 and does not have time to upgrade any more units. The Marantz has not been used for amplification just as a pre-amp, HDMI switcher and other features like AirPlay (overkill I know but I was going to use the on board amps to power other external room speakers) Summary: In summary, this might not be the best of the best but to me and I am sure many others if they had this system, it is the first audio setup I have had that I now say Movie Cinema's are a waste of time because the audio sounds appalling. When I am playing any form of music in 2-Channel playing live LP's for example, I get goose bumps imagining my self there because of the atmosphere and stage it recreates and how real it feels.. I quote from Wikipedia with the key words underlined. "Goose bumps, may involuntarily develop when a person is cold or experiences strong emotions such as fear, nostalgia, pleasure, euphoria, awe"... surely if your system is recreating this you have a good combination of components regardless of price point or brand, and I am not easily impressed.

  18. Hi All, I'm currently building a system and have a pair of dynaudio dm 2/6 speakers, I was just wondering what would be a good amp to match these? I'm on a bit of a budget so the two I was considering was the Marantz PM6004 or the Rotel RA-10. Does anyone have any views on these or is there something else I should be looking at? Cheers
  19. Hi again guys.

Im looking to eliminate the onkyo receiver from my system and get a nice pre/pro to compliment my system. Pre/pro's that have cought my eye are: MARANTZ AV 7005 MARANTZ AV 7705 MARANTZ AV 8801 ROTEL RSP 1580 (WHICH I CAN GET FOR $2500, RETAIL OF ABOUT $4500) I dont know much about Marantz model numbers so it gets a little confusing, and is there Denon pre/pro's that are up with these ones i have listed that i should consider? Im looking to spend roughy around $1500-$2500 on either a new or used unit i dont mind either way. Im sure the Rotel would blend in with the rest of my system like a glove, but how would the likes of Marantz/Denon/Parasound etc be? * Would like all of the latest decoding and room correction etc/ The best audio and visual possible for my budget/ Any help very much appreciated, thanks guys.

  24. All, Anyone out there using the Rotel RA-05SE? I auditioned it last week (it was driving a pair of 685's), and I was mightily impressed with the sound. The local hi-fi store is offering it new in the $549 price range (hopefully I will get them to knock that down a bit). Am keeping my eye on eBay bargains in the meantime but I would like to sort out the new amp before Christmas. I am taking back in my 686's this weekend to see if they will sound as good, and if they do will be very tempted to buy. Would be interested to hear from anyone who has had it for a while and what their impressions are. Ultimately, I will probably sell the 686s and upgrade them to a bigger speaker. So would also be interested to hear from people using the Rotel with a floorstander setup? I have a $750 (circa) budget (mentioned in a previous WTB post) for an Amp and CD player. But the CD player is less important now as I will use my MacBook as a music server (with HRT Streamer II DAC), and will prob spend the bulk of the budget on the amp. Any feedback is welcome. Cheers, Neil
