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.

      Item: Conrad -Johnson CA200
      Location:Adelaide
      Price: $2,800 + postage.
      Item Condition: Excellent. Presents as new.
      Reason for selling: Not quite my tempo
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
      Conrad Johnson CA200 in perfect condition. A credit to it’s previous owner, presents as new.
       
      185 Watts, Solid State Integrated with a plethora of inputs including theatre and EPL ins and outs. Also pre out for subwoofers.
       
      Fantastic remote control, finally a remote fitting of a proper amplifier, machined aluminium, not some plastic junk.
       
      Rich, full sound with robust sweet midrange. Excellent vocal reproduction.
       
      Just purchased, selling at same price. Why? I am extremely particular about exactly what I am seeking and this is not quite my flavour. It joins another dozen quality amplifiers, most far more expensive, that have not meet all my criteria. It will however be perfect for many, many systems.
       
      Lots of reviews online.
       
      All original packaging, owners manual and remote.

      Being new I’m not sure if I’m supposed to start a new topic or tag onto an old one, so here I am.
      We have a wonderful, if not old, stereo set-up with Rotel AMP and pre-amp, Yamaha multi CD player, an old turntable and Dali bookshelf speakers. I love using it, but the rest of the family just grabs the portable Bluetooth speaker and connects to their phones! In an attempt to use the digital technology and get a better sound than a portable Bluetooth speaker, I purchased an audio pro Addon C10. Much better sound – may need to get a second one!
       
      Anyway, the point of all this, apart from lamenting my old system, was to see if anyone knows of a sound bar for the TV that is compatible with audio pro gear. I cannot seem to find one. Audiopro have a gadget called a’Link 1’ but a person at one particular  store was not sure it would connect to a soundbar or a TV.
      Any ideas welcome! Maybe it’s as simple as using the Link 1?
