Choosing the right amplifier (Rotel vs Primare) 2018-08-09 13:40:38 At this moment I have a NAD C388 amplifier with B&W CM10 s2 (and B&W DB4S).The NAD has problems that NAD cannot solve, so after 2 repair attempts I have 3 options now.1. Get a new C388 (no extra money involved)2. Buy a Rotel RA-1592 (List price 2500 eur)3. Buy a Primare I25 with DAC (List price around 3100 eur)Both option 2 and 3 will probably cost me exactly the same according to my salesperson I spoke.The Primare is a quite new model. The Rotel is around for some time.I was already aiming towards Rotel, but I was pointed to the Primare to seriously consider.Now I have to choose which one is a better option for me. I mainly play music via my Windows HTPC via USB.I have absolutely no experience with Primare amplifiers. Only thing I know is the Rotel is twice as powerful (200wpc) class AB vs a (100wpc) class D amplifier. The salesperson told me this Primare amp sounds very good, so don't be fooled by the watts. Or should I?PS. I only play digital, so phono stage is not an issue.Anyone with some real experience with these amplifiers?Thanks in advance!
