Rotel RMB 1585 VS Elektra 5 Channel amp

Recommended Posts

the rmb 1585 is basically a re incarnation of the old rotel 1095

 

its a gutsy amp, plenty of power well made, good honest engineering and fantastic value for money. 

 

in my experience of it ... and its no different ot the 1095 i believe.... its quite a full sound. good dynamics clout

 

the elektra by comparison does all that ... but is more detailed particularly in top end. and better grip on the bass. 

 

id personally suggest go with the elektra ... but go the 7ch version. no real point going the 5ch... extra 2ch dont cost much more ...might come in handy down track and will get better resale as well.

Thanks @betty boop

Much appreciated your feedback. Will proceed Elektra.

 

Yes , I can see that as Elektra has damping factor>1000 vs Rotel 250 bass control is good in Elektra. That is good point.

 

But Elektra has only 40,000uf of capacitance vs Rotel has 12,0000uf . So the Rotel is high current?

 

Does high current matters or when does it matter?

 

Thanks again

Reason for selling: Upgrade Working Great, this refined and powerfull amp is made in New Zealand by the well known Perreaux, a renowned maker of high quality, high-end audiophile audio.
       
      There is only a small visual damage in the letter "R" (see picture), only visible if looking close. That is why the price is half of the same model on used market and 1/4 of a similar new one. 
       
      I may accept small speakers or DAC to trade.
