Question Fix or Replace


Novice Member
I currently have a Rotel RA-820A which I picked up at the absolute bargain price of £15.

It works OK but sometimes there are issues with the balance, a quick flick between the tone selections seems to fix it, while it isn't a major issue I'm considering sending to get it fixed.

I also have a chance to buy a Technics SU-V303 which I can pick up for £20 and is apparently in perfect working order.

Does anyone have experience of these amps or know which is the better quality sounding?

Rotel RA-820A specs (need to switch to A): Rotel RA-820 Manual - Stereo integrated amplifier - HiFi Engine

Technics SU-V303 specs: Technics SU-V303 Manual - Stereo Integrated Amplifier - HiFi Engine

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Tim
