    Buying a Rotel Amp 991 and 993????

    Hi folks -
    This is my first post and I just bought a used 993 3x200 amp through ebay after saving for a while. Since I listen to music as much as HT I needed something to take my Denon 3803 to a place it couldn't handle by itself.
    First off - what's the general impression of this unit and how does it compare with the 991-2x200 which I've seen great reviews for? It seems that the only real difference is the Damping factor- 260 for the 993 and 500 for the 991, What does this difference mean?
    Has anyone compared the 991/993 to the 1095???? Other then the 12v trigger what's the difference?

    Thanks for any help- Amras

    Basically the 993 is just as good as the 991. Only it has 3 channels in stead of 2.

    The damping factor is slightly lower, but that does not matter. More than 100 is enough to drive almost any speaker.

    As far as the 1075 comparison. I would go for 2x a 993 anytime over an 1075. Quality of the 993 is mutch better, but on the other side: what in the h*ll do you need 6 * 200 watts for

      200 watt is not enough for speakers like B&W 803 and higher, so if anyone has 6 times a B&W 803 in his set then better get bigger amps :P

      The 2 (or 3) channel amps of Rotel are quite good indeed, bit better than the 5 channel ones.
