SOLD: SOLD Rotel RA-840BX3 Amplifier - retro classic

Recommended Posts

Item: Rotel RA-840BX3 integrated amplifier
Location: Williamstown, Victoria
Price: $199
Item Condition: 7/10
Reason for selling: Too much gear... overdue purge
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra info: 
This Rotel is one sweet amplifier. From the 90's if I remember correctly.


Typically over-engineered in Rotel fashion, this amp has a beguiling sound that is just so easy to listen to all day... hallmark of a great amplifier. Its deceiving aswell - its small in size but very powerful with real current drive. Was very well regarded in it's day.


I've owned this since new, so its it very good condition. A few small nicks and scratches, and some of the lables are wearing off the facia slightly, but on the whole exceptional for its age.


This amp is perfect if you have a retro setup, or want to put together a really nice retro analog setup - just add a Rega RP3 (it has a good Phono stage to plug in your MM or MC cartridge/turntable), the Denon cassette deck and Denon tuner from my other listings, and a pair of nice standmount B&W or Dynaudios from the 90's


Please note that the Denon tuner is for sale on another page. If you want all 3 (this deck, Rotel amp and the Denon tuner), I'll throw in the tuner for free.

The first three 840's were very good for the time. Not a bad buy here.
