Long been pondering...reciever or pre/pro/power amp combo. Had always wanted a Rotel RMB-1075, but a matching THX pre/pro eludes me. Got tired of searching, and eventually settled on an Onkyo 805. As a bonus, the 805 was actually more powerful than the 1075 based on professional lab measurements and reviews. Saved a bundle too! Hit two birds with one stone, so am now fully THXéd...except for my subs.

The Onk is rated a tad more but I would be willing to bet the Rotel has more usable power.

I'll side with Rick on that, but it sounds like you found something that's making you smile. And that's what it's all about!

That's why, everytime I'm trying to decide on a piece of electronics to buy, I ask myself, "WWJD"???

Looks like the Onk fared pretty good in the lab.

Nice to see another eD owner on the forum.

I like the separate amps myself and am also a proponent of the higher listening levels the sound is cleaner group ... seems like I just never listen to any higher levels too much anymore.

Ken ... the instigator. \:D

It's a winter amp. No need for heating system. In the summer... it might require a triple air conditionner!

Lol, this is similar to my living room. In the fall we don't even need to turn the heat on until it gets below 40 degree's outside. The heat generated by all the HT equipment while listening to music, as well as our track lighting, does the trick just fine. ;\)
