I have a Rotel RB 1080 amp and recently a friend of mine and I did some comparing of amps. His is an old Mitsubishi DA-A15DC. Both amps sounded about the same through most of our testing, but on a few tracks, the Mitsubishi had much better bass slam(kick drum definition/pop). Now that I've heard that, i'd like to have that or better.
I could go out a buy a used Mitsubishi, but that amp is over 30 years old and I always worry about equipment that's that old. Does anyone out there know of a new or used amp that would provide nice bass slam/punch/definition?
I'm driving B&W 683 speakers and any suggestions would be appreciated.
