Separates vs Integrated, Help me decide…
please help me decide from these options, need a good all rounder listen to lots of different genres. Rock, pop, Rnb, classic, etc.
Difficult getting auditions at one dealer for all brands so have not heard most of these combos.
Your opinions please…
Audiolab CDQ + Audiolab 8200P – have only heard these separately, 8200P sounded very laid back
The 8200P was heard with a dedicated rotel pre-amp (didn't see which, was in a hurry) and then Audiolab 8000A, as pre-amp the 8000A sounded terrible in comparison to Rotel)
Rotel RB1572 + RC 1580 + VDACII – have only heard RA1520, liked the energy, does this combo have similar energy, concern is class D amps
Anthem 225 + VDACII – liked the clarity of the Anthem but did not have punch and wide sound stage of Rotel 1520
Naim Nait 5i + DACMagic – have not heard at all
Rega Brio R and Rega DAC or Audiolab MDAC
