I dont think Rotel is built any better than the NAD. From the outside the Cambridge wins hands down, but despite the plastiky look/feel of the NAD - its the internals which are more important and I dont think NAD are behind the other two in this regard.
dynamic turtle may have experiences with reliability issues with the mentioned items, heck you could buy a Rotel and still end up with a mechanical lemon!!!
The Rotel is clearly going to look the best with a Rotel amp, no arguments about it as far as I'm concerned. Although the performance of all is fair similar IMHO, the Rotel also edges it in the performance stakes... and I personally think the Rotel looks the best full stop.
