I upgraded to a set of B&W 703's about a year ago because I could not find any 803's in my price range. An upgrade to 803's was inevitable so in preparation I purchased a set of Rotel 1091 500watt monoblocks. Although I preferred Bryson's their...

Excellent imaging and detail but unfortunately in my opinion there is a harshness that prevails. Exposing weaknesses in non perfect recordings is a weakness in my mind. That takes out over half the music available. Even with excellent recording the...
