Just wondering if you can tell me the big difference(details)between these two pre amps. Is there a HUGE difference in the sound quality if you hook them up to the rb 1080? The rc 1090 does look nice with the LCD display but it does cost quite a bit more........would you be satisfied with the rc 1070 for your own sytem or will have to upgrade and get the rc 1090. (my main concern is definitely sound quality and it will only be used for 2 channel cd listening)
I called a Rotel dealer yesterday for some general prices because I not planning to make the big purchase yet.
rb 1090 3000.00(lunder)
rb 1080 999.99 (under)
rb 1070 699.99 (lunder)
rc 1070 499.99 (under)
rc 1090 1199.99 (under)
all these prices are in $cdn...........and also if you purchase a combo pre/power amp at the same time there is a rebate from rotel/5yr warranty........sounds very nice and very tempting but no cash on had will have to sweat it out for a while.
....if money wasn't the issue I would go out today and pick up the rb 1090 and the rc1090........too bad!
