Superb Rotel RB-1552 MkII

James from SPRINGFIELD, PA on 8/11/2021

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Upgraded from a Schiit Audio Vidar, which pales in comparison. Using with Sonus faber Lumina III tower speakers, this Rotel RB-1552 MkII has noticeably tighter and cleaner bass, as well as a warmer top end. The Rotel presents a non-fatiguing, enjoyable, and exciting sound with a wide soundstage. I can hear specific instruments with its exceptional spatial depth. Very satisfied with this exemplary amplifier and Crutchfield's service. Thank you!

Pros: Wide sound stage, tight and clean bass, warm top end, exciting sound signature.

Cons: None at this price point.

Powerful and clean!

Crutchfield customer from Guam,USA on 6/22/2021

I have the NAD Masters M33 integrated amp. Running it with Wharfedale Denton 85 bookshelfs, and two SB 1000 SVS subs. System sounds great (very quiet SNR 120) even at loud volumes. But, I want more slam and punch in my mids.. So I tried the Rotel RB 1552 MKII. (Using the M33 as a pre-amp) I am very impressed. So much so, I had to upgrade my Dentons to PSB Imagine X1T (small) towers. It was too much power for the Dentons. Funny thing is my M33 is rated 200 watts pers channel, the RB 1552 is only rated 130 watts per, and it is much stronger! Great thing too, is the RB 1552 has the same SNR (120) as the M33. What a great match up. Excellent build quality and beautiful aesthetics. This Amp is AWESOME! As always a pleasure doing business with Crutchfield! (best in the industry!!!!)

Pros: I have the NAD M33 sounds great but CLASS D amps inside, I found that I really love and prefer that CLASS AB sound like the Rotel RB 1552 MKII. It produces higher impact, and a visceral kick especially in the mid range.

Cons: I am using in a 12x10 room if your room is much larger may need the next model up. This amp gets HOT, I am using AC infinity (AIRCOM S8) fan for cooling.

Nice little amp

Crutchfield customer from NEW CITY, NY on 5/7/2021

Very nice amp. It runs cool even under heavy load. Best suited for high efficiency speakers or bookshelves speakers. I auditioned the amp for about a month and decided it wasn't right for my particular room/setup. I was driving Boston acoustics VR3 in a large living room. The amp struggled a bit when pushed under these conditions. Moving up to the the RB 1582mkii. Better dynamics and sound quality under load.

Pros: Size Runs cool

Cons: May not be right under all conditions.

Best Amplifier for B&W

Matt from Fredericksburg,VA on 4/14/2021

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Made my front left and right Bowers and Wilkins speakers sound significantly better than my Yamaha RX-A3080 ever did. This amplifier has plenty of power and I think the 130x2 rating is very conservative. One of the best upgrades that I have ever done.

Pros: Easy Setup

Cons: Cannot dim front power light
