Rotel vs NAD
 
Hi.I would like to take one of these amps:
Nad c-350
Rotel RA-840BX3
Rotel RA-940BX
Help me make the right choice, which one is best, what are the differences? Speakers are KEF coda 9. Which amplifier suits him best?Thanks.Sorry for the bad writing, I'm Hungarian.

Hello,

I had the Coda 9's and I've also owned NAD gear. The Coda 9's were "bright" to me and the NAD was also bright. Although I didn't own them at the same time, my guess is NAD and KEF would be quite heavy on the high end to the point of irritation to me. I have no experience with Rotel but have heard good things. I would lean towards Rotel anyway....NAD gear has a weird look to me.

Never liked rotel amps they sound anemic,gray,midrange dominated,weak soundstage.
I think you could find better amps than rotel or nad.

Eeek..... maybe I don't want to hear Rotel

I had an integrated Creek amp I wish I would have never let go....they pop up here from time to time.

Yes Kef is a bright speaker. I would recommend Gainclone amp.Not too expensive nor bright.
