    Own a Rotel, tried the Arcam (but bought the Rotel so that tells you my opinion) Can't stand the look of the NAD.

    I'd go for the RA-01, since it's the same under the bonnet as the 02 & £100 is a lot to pay for a remote.

    I can also tell you that the Rotel works well with a 630 for movies but you'll get itchy palms soon and want to upgrade your cd player. :D

    have got the NAD 320BEE and very happy with it

    Heard very good things about the RA-01/02 though... why don't you set up a demo of all three head to head - they will all have different tonal qualities so pick your personal favourite

    the RA-01 may be the one to go for (if you can do without a remote) as essentially it's a £350 amp (knocked down to £250 by exclusion of remote)

    Yeah, I'd take a NAD c350 for £219 (based on demos, lol). Anyway... enjoy. :cool:
