    For me I would go Rotel all day. Between the two just go listen you have two very good contenders there.

    While I have no experience with Adcom, my buddy has a Rotel front end and loves them.

    I owned both the Adcom and the Rotel at the same time. Kept switching back and forth to test. Convinced myself I preferred the Rotel so I sold the Adcom.

    I own both at the moment, and really like both, but my nod would go to the Rotel in the long run, for both SQ and longevity.

    Great, So Rotel seems to be the way to go. What about the $300 is that a fair price?, of course I'm gonna haggle a bit but I have no Idea what its worth.

    Same here. Actually at the moment I own both the 991 and 993 HT/ set-up. have the 993 for sale in the FM for much more than $300 because it's great shape and 200 w x 3 channels. So $300 is great price for that. $300 is about the going rate for the 991. If they are in good shape, I would pay up to $350 for the 991 and $400 + for the 993

    Rotel makes great sounding amps IMO
    PS: I'm still kinda new in the hobby, but my wallet has been around the block a couple of times.

    I missed the boat on the rotels, they sold before I could get an ear on them. I purchased a ATI 1202 this morning. Thanks for the responses.
