The paradox of high end preamps. If I ever mysteriously encounter a lot of money that I can spend on audio, I'd probably do the receiver/amp thing, rather than the preamp/amp thing.

Thanks very much guys for your input - I'm going to go listen to the Rotel, but I suspect that I'll probably attempt to buy the Denon.

I say "Attempt" because I've discovered that I have a hard time buying things in Vancouver - the retail culture out here is bizarre.

Go with the Rotel the sound is great, and it will do all of the new hdmi formats. I just checked one out over the weekend.

I purchased my Denon AVR from Ecost.com instead of a local Vancouver area retailer. In the end I saved about $600.00

PSpee, I will say this I have done the receiver and amp thing. It is not the same as a pre/pro, the bass management on the per/pro is way better, the distortion at loud levels or at modrate levels is not there it is a cleaner sound. You could look at getting Rotel 1095 or 1075 to go with the 1570. If you have the means to go with the pre/pro amp combo over the receiver, the sound will be better.

The RSP-1570 sure is a sweet looking component, if I could get my Axiom brethern to collectively donate a couple of grand I'd kick in the remainder and order one. Anybody up for helping a forum member in need?

ARGH! And I thought I had my mind made up.

Thanks for the input - will have a very careful listen to them both....

The recievers out today are just as good when used as a pre, imo.

How many separate pre amps have you listened to Randy?
