WTB: Rotel RC-1070 or RC-1090 Stereo Preamp

Recommended Posts

I've decided to sell the power amp.

 

Item: Rotel RC-1070 or RC-1090 Stereo Preamplifier (pref black, pref with remote)
Price Range: Up to $200ish, but the lower the better.
Item Condition: Used

Location: Melbourne
Extra Info:

 

Basically I have an unused RB-991 power amp and I'd like to find a matching pre. At least, I'm toying with the idea and want to see what's out there. Really I'm open to any stereo preamp at all, but, as we all know, matchy is best.

 

Alternatively, if you have the pre, and want to buy the RB-991 from me, I might be open to that, too. I'm just not a fan of orphaned components - either it gets a pre or it goes.

You might struggle to get a 1090 at that price range. I've got one and it's a great pre - I certainly wouldn't part with it for that sort of money. Suggest you look at Shark hifi to get an idea of what they sell for around the world. You could consider an RC995, although they also tend to go for around $450 - $500.

There is a very nice Musical Fidelity pre on Gumtree for $300 that might do the job for you.

 

Good hunting.

I appreciate the heads up. I'll admit, it's hard for me to tell what holds its value and what doesn't.

 

I'm beginning to think I should just sell the RB-991, if (according to hifishark) it really is worth $600-800. I'm just not using it.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Canberra State: Australian Capital Territory Payment Method: Direct Deposit, Cash on Pick-up, PayPal (+3%) Reason for selling: A change Further information:
      This unit is in excellent condition functionally and cosmetically. This unit has the original 4x HDMI 1.3b board with its latest firmware. I have used this unit for movies, high resolution surround (SACD, DVD-Audio, Blu-ray) and 2 channel audio application for the last 8 years with very satisfying results. Main reason for my purchasing the unit was the sound quality.
       
      The Classe SSP-800 represents the pinnacle of Classe performance and quality. The sound is smooth and detailed. 
       
      I am the second owner and have the original receipt, box and manual. Price is negotiable
       
      I would prefer local pick-up or buyer to arrange freight/shipping.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Carlingford State: New South Wales Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: no longer required Further information: I intended using this with my Manley Mahi power amps, but never did, so it has been in storage for a number of years. It was an ex demo unit when I acquired it, so has very few hours on it. It is in its original packaging, with original valves, with owner manual.
      'Tis a thing of beauty and needs to find an owner who will love and appreciate it.

      HI all.
      I have a stereo Setup (Denon DRA-375RD and Wharfedale Diamond 9.5) which i am relatively happy with for the time being (with the little one running around).
      It is mainly used for music but is also plugged into the TV for when we watch movies. The room is around 20sqm
       
      I was thinking of adding a smallish sub to compliment the system using high level inputs as the amp does not have a sub out.
       
      What would people recommend for a sub $500 sub, i dont mind purchasing second hand as i will eventually do proper HT when the little one grows up a bit.
       
      I would predominantly want it for music but also be able to perform when watching movies (that is more important than sounding good with movies and poor with music)
       
      Cheers,
      Luke
