    Rotel Amplifiers with Totem Forest Speakers

    I am considering a new HT system using Totem Forest Speaker for fronts and rears. Which multichannel amplifier would be the best to power these very inefficient speakers to see their best performance.

    No center channel?

    All movies, no 2ch or multi-ch music?

    No budget?

    Hard question to answer.

    I normally recommend getting the best 2 ch amp you can afford for the front mains, and build from there.

    OTOH, those who concentrate on HT might suggest the best 3 ch amp you can afford for your front left, right & center, though I would never for speak others.

    As always, IMHO & YMMV

      Yes there will be a center - a Totem Model-1 Signature Centers speaker.

      I am trying to decide between the Rotel RMB-1575 or some of the older Rotel A/B amplifiers, or possible other brands. I am trying to keeps cost down so I am considering purchase used from someone like AUDIOGON or someone local.

      Thanks,
