  3. Hi all Noob here. My current setup is a Rotel RA630 integrated amp paired to Monitor Audio Bronze 5 floor standing speakers. As I'm looking to purchase the Yamaha WXC-50 to use a streamer would it be possible to connect an active subwoofer to WXC-50 & then run it through the Rotel. Reading other queries here it seems that the WXC-50 can be used in "player" mode when connecting to an integrated amp but I'm not sure whether it will work when connecting an active subwoofer as well.
  4. Before I get started, this is not a sale post. Also if this post needs to be moved, go ahead, not sure exactly where to post. So my father has a set of paradigm s8's and the matching c3 center channel in piano black. He looking at the possibility of putting them up for sale. They are in immaculate condition, with extremely low usage, around 20-30 hours, center channel has even less run time, maybe 10 hours if that. They get used around once a month (blow the cobwebs out, and to remind the neighbours who lives there). He's always been into hifi, always looks after his gear and is in a smoke free environment (also the person I got the bug from) . He's had them running off a pair of rotel 980bxs bridged, 1 amp for each speaker. These will more than likely be up for sale as well, he's owned this since new when he brought them back around 1998. He still has the original boxing for the s8's, no boxes for the center or the rotels (they got water damaged, tuned to mush). There are another couple of things, such as the harman kardon receiver and a B&W sub along with a pioneer bluray player. Ideally he would like to move the paradigms and the rotels as a set, would more than likely do a deal for the lot if someone was interested. Now, the only draw back, he's located in Hawks Bay in New Zealand. So essentially this will limit potential interest. Attached you will find photos.

  8. Item: Rotel RX-850A Location: Gembrook or Knoxfield, VIC. Price: $20 Item Condition: Good physical condition apart from text fading around the power button. Amplifier section and AM reception in good working order, but FM reception is intermittent. Reason for selling: No longer required. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This was the heart of my garage system for a few years until the FM problem came along and it was replaced by a separate amp and tuner of similar vintage.

Happy to post at buyers expense. Can also deliver to Melbourne Outer Eastern suburbs for a small fee. Pictures:

  10. Hi, I've just purchased 2nd hand a pair of b&W 805s, i need advice on upgrading from Linn Classic cd/receiver to an integrated amp capable of biamping the speakers, adding hard drive (bluesound perhaps?) and a streamer. Yes a Naim all in one would be good however the price prohibits this, I'm looking second hand mkt. I may add a sub and another pair speakers for surround - BW cdm7 or 9s a preference at this time. I see Rotels come up regularly on 2nd hand mkt and Accuphase, mosty older models so there's a risk there. Rotel power amps are at low prices however trying to declutter but maybe for rear channels? I have a pair of bw 602.5 and 602s3 as well but likely sell these to fund the cdms'. My recapped/retweeted imf super compacts and linn receiver will go,to the bedroom. Would appreciate relevant advice. Thanks JH
  11. Hi all, im thinking is like to try a different 2ch amp at home. i currently have the Yamaha AS-1100 and am happy however curiosity has set in and an wondering if more power and a different signature sound will also satisfy me some might recall my adventure getting this amp and the fact I have a Matantz AVR still set up at home and utilise a Beresford to switch between amps for HT and 2ch listening. speakers are still KEF Q950 the Vincent SV237mk is still knocking at the door loudly and I see now the Rotel RA1592 is on sale at a lot of places for approx $2700. I know the Vincent is a tad warmer and more powerful but the RA1592!ivenot heard but see it to be more powerful- anyone have experience with this amp? being that I consider Marantz sound quite warm and smooth, the Yamaha sound is very neutral but still smooth (not as smooth), but not as “forgiving” as Marantz... To spend the money on anew amp I’m keen to look and listen to amps that have more power than the Yamaha as the KEFs like being driven to get the most out of them any suggestions out there to add to the list Vincent and Rotel? budget up to say $3500 but less if possible! Understanding I’ll get suggestions above and double that but springing to mind is Roksan, musical fidelity and I think Onkyo have one for about $3k also. Whatever I look at must have x4 analog rca options, digital inputs and dac not important as I have an Oppo 205 which I’ll connect to it for that purpose but it’s a full package like the Rotel that is fine also. thanks all keen to read your suggestions and any experiences
  12. Item: ROTEL RCD855 CD PLAYER Location: ADELAIDE Price: 220 Negotiable Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: EFT, Cash, Paypal, COD + Shipping at buyers cost Extra Info: Great sounding Rotel RCD-855 CD Player using famous Phillips TDA1941A Dac + SAA7210P decoder Open, detailed highs + deeper richer bass and great dynamics like in much more expensive, higher end players. Output: Rca Analog and Digital Coax In excellent condition , no skipping or dithering. All functions working. Very fast CD loading mechanism and fast play. NB : No remote. Only known issue : Tray opens & shuts quickly, but placing finger when open stops the tray from immediately shutting for Cd loading ( see pics ) . This is a common issue with these players and can be rectified easily by removing rubber o-ring stops inside the tray . Will pack securely with bubble wrap in box, for shipping at buyers cost. High quality build, heavy with excellent power supply. See review : https://www.head-fi.org/threads/proud-new-rotel-rcd-855-owner.163783/ Stereophile : "By now, it's no secret that one of audio's biggest values has been the hugely popular Rotel RCD-855 CD player; for only $400, it offered sound quality on a par with far more expensive gear, and provided countless tentative audiophiles with the perfect interim CD player during a period of almost daily digital breakthroughs. I don't know about you, but it seems to me like Bob Harley (in whose beard we trust) has been heralding a newest bestest digital processor in every issue of Stereophile for the past couple of years now! I'm not blaming my homeslice RH, though; the Mark Levinsons, Audio Researches, Thetas, Staxes, Wadias, and VTLs have been battling it out for the title of Supreme Digital Leader with more stubborn inbred fury than a hundred Hatfields and McCoys, churning out ever-better gear almost faster than the chipmakers can cut their dies. So when Lewis Lipnick called the $400 Rotel 855 "the steal of the century" in Vol.13 No.7, a loud chorus of HUZZAHS! arose from the foxholes; finally, there was a cheap CD player that could hold its own with the big boys. Pow-er To The Pee-pull! The Rotel was the right player at the right time; basically a standard Philips 16-bit machine with better parts and a beefier power supply, the 855 found a home in thousands of happy systems the world over.

  14. Rotel RMB-1095, 5 Channel Power Amp Price: $1800 Producing a full kilowatt (1000 watts!) of output power, Rotel’s RMB-1095 is a stunning realization of Rotel’s capabilities in amplifier design. It is, for all intents and purposes, a multi-channel version of the RB-1080 stereo power amplifier, already recognized as one of the finest amplifiers available at any price. Rated at 200 watts per channel (all 5 channels driven into 8 ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz, less than 0.05% THD), the RMB-1095’s power supply is built around two Rotel made 1.2 kVa toroidal transformers. Eight British-made BHC Slit Foil capacitors each with over 15,000 μf of energy storage, combine with thirty 150 watt, 15 amp output devices for uncompressed reproduction of the most dynamic source material. A sophisticated “over current” protection circuit with front panel LED indicators guards against potentially harmful operating conditions. Special “current absorbers” minimize turn-on surges while gold plated balanced XLR and single-ended RCA inputs provide easy connection to a variety of controller / preamplifiers. Heavy rear casters assist in placing the amplifier. RMB 1095 High Current Five Channel Amplifier Specifications: Power Configurations: 5 x 200 watts Watts/Channel all channels driven, unbridged, 8 ohm load, 20 to 20k Hz, 0.06% THD 200 watts THD (20-20,000Hz) cont. rated power 0.03%, maximum IM Distortion (at rated ower, 60Hz:7kHz = 4:1) 0.03%, maximum Damping Factor (8 ohms) 400 Input Sens. / Impedance 1.5V / 33 kohms Frequency Response 15-100 kHz (=0.5, -3dB) S/N Ratio (IHF A) 116dB Power Consumption 800 watts Dimensions (W x H x D) 433 x 237 x 380mm 17 1/8 x 9 3/8 x 15" Front Panel Height 221 mm, 8.7" Weight (net) 34 kg / 75 lbs Location: The Audio Experts, 03 9545 5152, 2065, Dandenong Road, Clayton, Vic 3168 Price: $1800 Item Condition: Used, in perfect condition slight mark on top see photos (customer trade in), Item can be demonstrated before purchase if desired located in Clayton.

  20. Hello, Not sure if I've posted this in the right forum possibly should be in the DIY section. I recently bought a second hand Rotel RA-12 to use as a pre-amp. The Rotel randomly relay clicks and drops sound for a split second which seems to become more and more frequent over a couple of hours of use. I am guessing it is heat related. It is also gets quite hot towards the back right of the amp. I removed the monoblocks I was using and used the Rotel as an integrated thinking maybe it doesn't like having no load even though the speaker switch is off. And that seemed to reduce the clicking considerably but then I didn't use it for as long so who knows. I have taken the lid off after letting it run for quite a while with no speakers connected and found 2 transistor heat sinks (Q905, 906) under the location where it was getting quite hot. The heat sinks are untouchable for more than a second, they're that hot. Is this irregularly hot? Does anyone know what would cause this? Thanks for any help.

Item: Rotel RA-1570 Integrated Amp (Price Drop) Location: Brisbane Price Drop: $1100 Price: $1400 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded gear Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Approx. 12 Months old from Aussie Hi-Fi in Brisbane. This has been a great amp mainly doing Vinyl duties, but I've recently moved to a more powerful amp and so is now no longer required and looking to send it on a good home rather than sit in storage. Has a good MM phono stage but requires a phono amp for MC. Still current generation from Rotel, and full details can be found on the Rotel site - https://www.rotel.com.au/products/ra-1570-integrated-amplifier Have all manuals, remote, Bluetooth USB adaptor and original double boxing so can ship at buyers expense if interested, but would prefer local. Any other questions please feel free to ask - thanks for taking the time to look! Pictures:
  22. Hi I'm looking at buying a cheap Rotel RA-12 to use as a pre-amp. But I do not know if the pre-outs are variable or fixed? I've looked everywhere for the answer! Does anybody know or able to find out? I have found out that the RA-12 is almost exactly the same as the RA-630, if that helps giving the answer. Thanks for any help.

  25. Item: Rotel A10 Integrated Amplifier Location: Carlton North, Melbourne 3054 Price: $400 Item Condition: Excellent - Like New Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: This class AB amplifier has been hardly used - it's probably only seen about 50 hours of playtime. Bought brand new for the retail price of $649 and used with a Rega turntable. It has a great moving magnet phono stage built in and the slimline design makes it very compact. It's rated at 40 Watts per channel but honestly it packs quite a bunch despite it's slim design and has driven my Proac Super EBTs with ease. Comes with original box, cables, and all of the leaflets that came inside. All specs found in the link below. https://www.rotel.com.au/products/rotel-a10-integrated-amplifier Pictures:
