    Need opinions on this.

    I was about to place an order for a Rotel 1075 amp for £750 but this morning I have been offered a used Tag 100x5 amp in mint condition for £1300.

    Which is better and why + what would you go for given 1. the Tag is second hand 2. The Rotel is £550 cheaper. I can stretch to the Tag but not without stress from the missus.

    The Tag amp does not have an R at the end of its model designation - is this a problem and what is it supposed to signify ?


    Thanks

    Answers to the original question would also be appreciated.

    Thanks

    It is only 6 months old - the only reason why I am selling it (even though I promised the wife I would never sell it!) is that I wanted to change my processor (MC-1) - sold on the forums a couple of weeks ago to Chips.
    Krell were doing a special deal that if you bought the processor and amplifier you get a discount - so I went for it! Hence I need to sell my amp!!

    Basically, it is in mint condition - infact it is considered as just run in. It can be used either single ended or balanced (this is rare on an amplifier for this price), silver, boxed etc etc. The rest of the specs can be found at:

    http://www.copland.dk/

    It was originally for sale at £1900, but I am now willing to take £1800 - that is £500 off the new price - and even at its new price it is considered 'cheap' in high-end terms.

    Hi - Sounds like a good buy bit to be honest I am going to struggle to meet your asking price. £1300 for the TAG was pretty top end for me - still need to purchase a processor and a new DVD player on top. Sorry but good luck.

    Please ignore this thread. I lost out on the TAG so the question has become irrelevant.
