Summary: The Rotel ra-1520, this is an interesting amp - it improves with time, alot of time. You'll need to be patient though very patient. Out the box it looks lovely. I have the black model - its heavy and the fit is solid. All buttons/speaker terminals feel high quality, they feel built to last.
Summary: was looking for an integrated amp to replace my 1980's luxman integrated. the reason was that my luxman's buttons stopped working so i couldn't switch between sources. also, everytime i wanted to change the volume, i had to walk up to the unit....lol.
Summary: The Rotel RA-1520 has got to be the best integrated stereo amplifier I have owned, I have partnered my amp with B&W’s fantastic 684s, Marantz CD6003 CD player, QED silver anniversary bi-wired cables and audioquest interconnects.

Summary: I've had the RA-1520 for a month now and I'm loving it. It is running a pair of B&W CM7 towers with Transparent Audio cabling. The first few hours were pretty harsh. Give it some time and it is a beautiful sound. Bass is controlled and tuneful.
Summary: ROTEL DID IT AGAIN I really don't understand why people spend $10.000 on Amplifier. Is it just because they have money or because of bells and whistles. Recently I have purchased NEW line of Rotel Integrated Amplifier RA-1520, 2 x60W. After 60+ hours sound opened.
