SOLD: FS: Rotel RB-991 Stereo Power Amplifier

Recommended Posts

Item: Rotel RB-991 Power Amplifier
Location: Melbourne (Northern 'burbs)
Price: $500
Item Condition: Cosmetically, pretty much spotless. Electronically, given a clean bill of health by Philatronics (after a minor gain calibration). Will make a bit of a 'whump' when you turn it on, as do most power amps of this era, but no complaints otherwise.
Reason for selling: I bought it to use with an AVR, then got sick of the AVR and its issues and bought a brand new 200w p/c Rotel integrated instead. This has sat idle ever since.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash
Extra Info: 200wpc into 8ohms - possibly more if you read the Stereophile review. Bought from a meticulous owner who used it with a Rotel AVR and an RB-993 to power his Miller & Kreisel surround system, who in turn bought it from another meticulous owner. As far as I know, I am owner #3, and have used it a total of maybe 20 hours at sub-reference levels with some KEF Q700s.

      Item:                                                  ROTEL 1080 POWER AMP
      Location:                                          LONG BEACH,  NSW.
      Price:                                                 $700 neg
      Item Condition:                               VERY GOOD.
      Reason for selling:                         NLR.

      Extra Info:
                                          Hi Guys,
                                                             I had planned to use this as part of a 7.2 surround system.
                                                            Middle speaker placement proved to be a massive pain, so I gave up on the idea.
                                                            When I bought it I found that one of the XLR inputs wasn`t working,
                                                           I sent it to rage audio, who found that the balance switch was dirty, cleaned up, presto on good amp.
                                                           The case has a few small marks, the front is fine as is the rear, just the top.
                                                          I`m heading to Sydney tomorrow morning I can head back through Canberra in the afternoon.
                                                          As always audition is welcome.
                                                                                                                            Cheers.             Ian.
