    Maggies 1.6 and Rotel RA1070

    I am going to go with the maggies 1.6....my advisor is recommending the rotl ra-1070....anyone out there with that combo? wondering if it would be a bit under-powered or not?

    That depends on how loud you want to listen to them and if you have a subwoofer? I used to run my maggie 1.5's with a 90 watt HK power amp that wasn't nearly as strong as the 1070 is and it did fine at the levels I played..then I upgraded to a nice 125 watt musical fidelity amp and things improved a lot. Given the Rotel has about the same wattage as the MF I'd say that's a pretty good place to start. If you can afford the 1080 though I'd say that would be a wiser investment (in other words you'll keep the 1080 longer then the 1070 which might be a stop gap until you upgrade)

      i have magnepan 1.6's, and i was using one RB-1070, but it wasnt enough, so now im bi-amping with two 1070's, one for each speaker. that is good, but if i could do it over, i would use two 1080's instead. but i do have a pretty open room. not big, but high ceilings and its open.
