Hi all, I can get a Rotel RC-1570 preamp for quite a good price and I like the sound of it. With this combination I still need to buy a power amp. I have heard very positive things about pro-amps such as Crown. I am a bit on a tight budget for this so I wonder whether the RC-1570 + Crown XLS 1002 power-amp will sound just as good as the integrated amp Rotel RA-1570. The Crown has 215W and the int. Rotel amp 120W. Probably the Pre-amp + pro power amp solution will be the cheapest but will I later regret this because the RA-1570 int. amp maybe sounds better? My speakers will either be the B&W CM8S2 or XTZ 99.36 FLR (haven't decided yet but I listened to both and I like both). I currently live in China so I can't try out the combination and return it within 30 days if I don't like it since they don't have that kind of buyer protection rules over here.
