Posted this in an old Roksan thread and didn't get much response - so here's hoping. Here's my newbie experience and a couple of questions for you. I am about to get into Home Cinema but want to take the opportunity to improve my stereo quality as well. This forum has been very helpful so far - so thanks to all of you. I am leaning heavily towards a solution comprising AV Receiver and separate stereo amp. I visited my local Sevenoaks, and this reinforced the benefits of specialist shops to me. They were very friendly and helpful and set up a couple of stereo amps for me to listen to: Roksan Kandy MK III and a Rotel RB-03/RC-03 pre/power combo. I preferred the Kandy - IMO it had better control and detail, and was more "involving". Question: Could the Kandy MK III owners out there give me their longer-term experiences with this amp. I listen to "heavy rock", classcal music and vocal artisits. With regard to the AV Receiver side of things. I am leaning towards combining this with a Pioneer D1011. Does anyone have any experience of this combo or comments?
