I have just created a thread in the integrated amps forum regarding this, and another amplifier matter. I am thinking of adding a Rotel RA-02 to my existing AV system of Yamaha 640SE amp and Mordaunt-Short Avant setup (906, 905c, 902). I am concerned whether the Rotel will be a good match for my speakers. I have been informed by Rotel that their amps tend to be 'bright' and 'up front'. Problem is, so are my speakers. So I am thinking this may be a bad match. Can anyone else advise on this please. Thanks!
