which rotel for rti10

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello everyone
I am looking for a suitable amp for my polkaudio rti10 towers(300 w rms,8ohms,89db)
I'll be usin it primarily for music.so please suggest me the rite amp.
My choice in order of preference is
1)RA 06 -int amp-70 x 2
2)RA 1062-int amp-60 x 2
3) RX 1052-receiver-100 x 2
which of these amps drive the rti 10s well?
is a 60/70 watt int amp better than a 100 watt receiver for music?

Hi ,

I have not heard the rotels with polk audio speakers but am using them with B&W s and i think they are great in every way. U can do better than rotel but at a much higher price.

If the speakers u are intending to buy are big floorstanders with a max power rating of 300 w why would u buy an integrated amplifier. Both the RA 06 and the RA 1062(have one with small 601 s in the bedroom)are sweet amps but not for the speaker u mention. when u crank up the volume they wont manage. AS for the stereo receiver its just the integrated plus tuner. Have not heard rotel receivers so cant comment.

To my mind the best solution is an RC 1070 pre and RB 1080 (200 watts per channel)power or if u want to spend more then the RC 1082 pre(just launched) with the RB 1080 power amp.The RB 1080 has a dampning factor of about 1000 as compared to most integrateds which are about 300/400(NAD is 150) and will control most speakers. I think its a cracking power amp.If u must have a rotel integrated then the minimum would be RA 1070 which is 100 wpc but sounds more powerful than the rating.

Anyway please hear all the amps with ur speakers and check if u are satisfied. I am running the 1070/1080/B&W 805 combo and i like it.
