    I did it :-) ROTEL & B&W combi is on its way ...

    thanx guys for your help in finding a good configuration

    yesterday i bought my new toys:

    1x Rotel RSX1065
    4x B&W 603 S3
    1x B&W LCR600
    1x B&W ASW650
    with R&W CDC6 cables

    my only problem is - what SACD Player ? Rotel
    hates this format ? - no player available or planned :-(

    Anyone can help out ?

    bye,

    Thor:

    Why not consider a universal player (plays both dvd-a & sacd)? For example, a Denon DVD-2200, 2900, or if you've got a lot of bucks to spend, a DVD-5900.

      Thor,

      I have the Denon DV-2200 with a Rotel RSP-1098 and it sounds fantastic! I could not hear any appreciable difference between the DV-2200 and DV-2900, so I saved a little money and went with the 2200. Didn't audition the 5900 however as the dealer didn't stock it (special order only).

      I too wish Rotel had a universal player, but the Denons are a great substitue.

          thanx for your replies - kevin - how u think about the cd sound ? some people in other forums said that it is a little bit loud (spinning) and the cd sound is not as good as they thought ...

          so long,

          thorsten

          p.s.: a rotel multi player would be cool - but some salesman told me that
          he think the actual players were maybe bought from another company ... because quality isn´t as good as before ... but can´t anything about it - never had one ...

              Thor,

              I have not noticed any unusual noise when a disk is spinning, it as quiet as any other CD/DVD player I had in the past.

              Concerning CD sound quality it is good, but I still prefer to listen to CDs on my Rotel RCD-971 CD player which I still have. But I am trying to build my music library on DVD-A and SACD going forward. For the new hi-rez formats, I am very, very satisfied with the DVD-2200.

              The video quality is also the best I've personally had over an older JVC and Panasonic DVD players going back several years.

              Rather than purchasing the Denon DVD-2900 -- I recommend the DVD-2200 for video and multichannel DVD-A/SACD and then purchase a good used Rotel CD player (ie., RCD-971 Stereophile class-C rated, say on audiogon.com) - all total you'd spend about the same amount of dough, but then you'd have the near-best of all worlds.

              Regards,
              Kevin

                hi kevin,

                thanks for your reply, cool strategy - haven´t thought about such a thing - but would be a nice combi - right now - checking ebay and some internet shops :-)

                ciao,

                    I had a denon 2900 and returned it for the Pioneer Elite dv-59avi. The Pioneer is a better DVD player and I couldn't notice a difference playing SACD or DVDA or Redbook CD's so I went w/ the Pioneer for my 1098.

                    Hope this helps and doen't make things more confusing. I don't think you could go wrong with either player though.
