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.

      Why Buy?
      Built in 1999, with one main owner since then, this is a great example of a fantastically capable Rotel power amplifier.
      Featuring an inhouse-built, oversized toroidal transformer and easily configured for bridged mono mode, it has plenty of power for any speaker down to 4 ohms, and a lovely warm detailed sound to boot.
      Recently serviced and given a clean bill of health by Rage Audio (with only minor repairs needed), it is immaculate mechanically and electronically, with the only blemish being pitting and roughness on the top cover.

      Power output: 130 watts per channel into 8ohms (stereo), 360W into 8ohms (mono)

      Damping factor: 500

      Item Condition: Very Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Penshurst State: NSW Payment Method: Cash, EFT, Paypal Reason for selling: Cash Further information:  Great integrated amplifier which gets very good reviews.  It is a lot more powerful and punchy than specs suggest, have used them with 86 db speakers and never need to push the volume more than halfway, and has plenty of grip on the bass.  I am selling this as it for a second setup that isn't getting used much.  Includes all original manuals, box, and remote.  Priced to sell.

      I am the original owner of the pre and the 980.  The 850 was purchased of eBay years ago.    I kept them because I had always thought I would use the 980 (160W @ 8Ohms) plus the bridged 850 (similar power) would make a good trio of amps for the front three HT channels.  Turns out I just never used them.  I have been stirring them in the shed and so it’s time to go.  Cosmetic condition is conservative 5 out of 10.  Scratches and dust and a few scuff marks.  Actually look worse in the photos.  I broke the plastic cover on the speaker terminal on the 980 so replaced it with a nice brass terminal - much nicer than the plastic and I always meant to replace all of them.  The pre is missing a plastic knob.  You can swap the know around if you need to switch.  I doubt anyone wants the pre but it could be useful to someone - note it has a phono input.   I tested them all yesterday and they all work fine.   At this point I will not separate.  I have the original manual for the pre and the 890 but no boxes.   I work near Royal Melbourne hospital so could meet someone in central melb to hand over.
