So here's the deal. I decided to do a change for the sake of change. I sold my Adcom GTP 450 and bought a Rotel RSP 960AX pre/pro. It received some good comments at Audioreview so I figured WTH.
Bass response has gone south and what was a light hiss from the bridged M1.0 amps has turned into a very audible hum. It doesn't get louder with volume increase but is pretty distracting.
Maybe these components just don't get along? I don't think I can keep this thing in my rig. Any suggestions for a more compatible pre?
I have heard the M1.0's will generate some noise when bridged, and they did have a whisper of noise before, but.....
The Adcom did a pretty good job but I was just ready for a change. I was wanting something with surround potential but will consider anything with a remote for under $300.
