    Default How good can it get?!

    WOOOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Finally replaced the H/K being used as a pre/pro with the Rotel 1066 mated to the 1075. I really was skeptical when I purchased it whether it would make that much of a difference in sound quality. I used XXX as a comparison DVD and HOLY ****!! I don't have the lingo down yet and don't quite know how to describe the difference other than to say can it get any better!? It absolutely brought 5.1 and my RT25i surrounds to life. The scene where Cage steals the Vette made me feel like I was standing right there. Every subtle sound such as when at the begining of the movie the agent was wrestling with his lock pick to open the door was crystal clear. My abused ears at my age tend to miss a lot but I heard sounds and music tones that I am not familiar with. I also tend to have trouble hearing all the dialogue but I didn't miss a beat. What a freagin difference!!

    Thanks guys for the info and push towards Rotel seperates. Especially Mantis and polkatese. Mantis..Rotel all NIGHT.

    especially tonight..bbbbrrriiinnnggg..sorry boss I don't feel good!

    polkatese, thanks and I will enjoy..ALL NIGHT! Still waiting on the panamax..should have by wednesday to help clean up what is left of the snake pit. Think it is a lost cause though. The hell with it..as long as it sounds and looks good from the front. If nothing else I have the power cables separated from the A/V cables. By the way..money well spent and Pics coming soon.

    I like it! I don't know all the marketing terms either.
    Q:
    Do you think that a Rotel upgrade would be a good or bad combo with an Outlaw 770 Amp in my case?

    You matched a Rotel set which Mantis and most others agree should be a no brainer but also the Rotel has much better amps compared to h/k... high current Marketing hype IMO. So which had the greater impact?

    HBombToo,

    Absolutely the preamp made the biggest difference. It increased the bass (or cleaned it up or whatever) which just sounds rock solid even past the point of tolerable. Even the sub has new life. I could go on but you get the point. I can only make judgement by my one experience of replacing a receiver with a preamp but I say just DO IT. Your question regarding the Outlaw with the Rotel I really can't answer but I'm sure there are others on this forum that could. However, through my experience it would surely be a major improvement over using your receiver as a pre/pro!

    As far as the amp, there may have been a slight improvement over the H/K at normal listening levels but it really started to shine at greater volume. But after puting the two Rotels together the sound became incredible with the RT's. Just keep in mind I haven't experience any music cd's or DVD's so my comments thus far are based solely on 5.1 Dolby Digital video DVD's.

    Mx, if there is anyway you can swing it man..do it. Didn't you just buy an amp..Adcom I think..don't waste it. If you can't do it now take solace in the fact that you are half way there to much better sound.
