TheFlash posted a topic in 2 ChannelI have vintage Rotel Michi RHC-10 pasive pre RHB-10 power and RHQ-10 phono which doesn't quite look as smart as this stock pure porn shot: The one that got away: What a man needs is obviously a matching RHCD-10. They're as rare as rocking horse droppings which is why I bid up to £400 for one described as having "intermittent" problems reading discs (that will be a backside-covering no-comeback description then). No idea how high I could have pushed the eventual sale price but it went at £410. In 2015 a mint one in Portugal went for £1100. It's superbly over-engineered like the rest of the Michi line, with two outboard transformers. At its heart is the Burr-Brown PCM-63P DAC (well, two actually) and PMD-100 filter; the mechanism is a Philips CDM 9 PRO. The more prosaic looking RCD-990 which followed this dropped some of the extreme engineering but kept the same DAC and mechanism. I've been keeping an eye out for an RCD-991 which kept the highly regarded PCM-63P DAC; uses a more reliable Sony drive mechanism; adds balanced outputs; and intriguingly also has variable dither settings. See HiFiChoice Review here www.rotel.com/sites/default/files/RCD-991%20Hifi%20Choice%20Sept99.pdf for the importance of this. I am pleased to report that my absolutely mint one arrived this morning, triple-boxed and from Germany, complete with equally mint remote and original double box. I've only had a brief listen, using Dither 4, and am very pleased; proper listening and dither experimentation to come. I'm actually more relieved than pleased! Advertised as "for parts or not working" and asking €585?? I checked: "yes it's working and absolutely mint, we just can't provide a warranty due to its age". I offered a low ball €450 and it was accepted. It looks and feels like a new player, and a superbly well-built one at that. Actual photos follow:
Rare appearance for this THX certified 3 x 200 watt amp for sale. £475 or nearest offer An affordable way to add serious, quality amplification to your centre and rear channels, this amp has been tested with my own rig and performed well against the NAD that normally runs my centre with a similar natural tone and good voice delivery, rears were well spaced and had good sonic positioning. Driving the Sonus Faber DOMUS centre it was originally paired with it sounded brilliant and you could pick that up in my other advert if you fancied an upgrade? Some scratches on the top but nothing serious. see pic. This Rotel was performing centre and Surround power duties in my good friends AV system until he passed away last year. His widow has asked me to oversee the sale of the bulk of his setup to help with her situation. The rest of the setup will be advertised over the coming days including Opus 2-3 mains, Monitor Audio RX6 mains, other power amps and so on. Dont seem to have a pic of the front for some reason so I will add one in due course thanks for reading.
