    Rb-1572+rmb-1077 ?

    Hello There !

    Happy new year to everyone, by the way

    I just sold my RMB-1075 and got a 1077 (really impressive change !)

    I wanted to know what you would think about adding a RB-1572 (for the front) to my current 1077 (center + rear).

    Would you think my Monitor Audio GS20 would benefit from such an amp or is it overkill ?

    Thank you for your comment !

    Cheers,

    Len

    I replaced my 1075 with a 1077 a few weeks ago. I was surprised at the upgrade in sound quality! Wow.

    If you are using a subwoofer with a crossover engaged in the processor, I would think you wouldn't really hear the benefits. However, if you are driving your speakers full range, if would be something to consider for sure.

      The RMB-1077 is IMO still one of Rotels best sounding amps. I would enjoy it for a few weeks... if you think then that the fronts are lacking a bit, then by all means consider a RB-1572, but the 1077 is very very capable - I used one to drive a pair of 802d's for almost a year.

        Thank you so much for your fast answers.

        To tell the truth, I am very surprised by this "little" amp (size). I do not feel the mains to be underpowered at all.

        I have gained a lot in bass tightness and general definition. Moreover, the mid and highs are much more smoother.

        I will wait a bit more and maybe consider getting a second sub.
