    Sonus Rotel combo?

    Looking into the possibility of a Rotel 1055 + 1080 amp with Sonus faber speakers combo. Specifically the Sonus Cremona Auditor or Sonus Grand Piano Home.

    Anybody used a Sonus/Rotel system here? How is it?

    Cannot audition the gear together so I have to ask for your opinions. My first option is Rotel with B&W and we all know its a match (Rotel's dark sound + B&W bright sound) but the mids of the Sonus are just WOW! :LOL:

    I personally wouldn't describe Rotel as dark, perhaps a tad to the warm side, but relatively neutral overall. What Rotel does provide is clean power which should match up well with either speaker.

    That said, I'd say go for the Sonus Faber. No knock, of course, on the B&W's, but I once heard that you know you found the right speakers when they reach out and grab hold of you. Sounds like the Sonus Faber did just that for you.

    The only consideration I'd give is whether you power supply can handle the Sonus Fabers. I honestly don't know how sensitive they are, so don't let this dissuade you. Just make sure you can give enough power to comfortably drive them in your listening environment at levels you like to listen to.
