Hi, I'm about to spring for a 5-channel LSi system: the LSi15 towers, LSiC center, and LSiFX surrounds. I want to power them with a dedicated 5-channel Rotel amp. I plan on listening to them at "normal" levels for TV and even music most of the time - my wife and I are pretty mellow. But we will probably crank up the sound once a week or so.
I am trying to decide between the Rotel 1075, which is 5x200 at 4 ohms and costs $1000; and the Rotel 1095, which is 5x330 at 4 ohms and costs $2000. My questions is, do I need the 1095, or will the 1075 be enough? Secondly, even if the 1075 is enough, will the 1095 simply give it a better quality sound at a given level of volume? In other words, if the extra power of the 1095 benefits quality just as much as volume potential, then it may make the 1095 worth getting.
Thanks for any comments.
