i just bought a rotel rsx 1057,2 klipsch floorstanding rf 63's and a center channel rf 62.i will be adding surround speakers later. for now i mainly listening to cd's. any ideas of a 2 channel amp that i could add for just for the 2 floor speakers? the rf 63's take 175 watts and the rotel in stereo mode gives out 100.it sounds great but i dont want to underpower them.

What's your budget?

I could rattle off name after name of amps that would work, but if they're all too expensive, doesn't help you much.

ART SLA-2 (or SLA-1)?

And when I'm drooling over something solid state, that's saying something :)

Jim, your posting very good links to audio sales. I'm starting to hate you for doing this. If you keep doing it my pocket book is going to hate you also.

I would say since you have Rotel stuff already, you should look at the RB-1080 or something of the like.... But since you only have a budget of $500 you should look around ebay and see if you can find something simular to it for around that price...


I have to say that link that JimJ put up would be a nice addition also....

DIY? $400 for a powered or non powered sub?

As long as you don't over drive the Rotel's internal amplifier you won't do any damage to the speakers. You say it sounds great so I say why spend more money on an amp that won't sound any better than the Rotel??

Doesn't look too bad, not much more than the cost of the plate amp alone :)
