RE: Rotel RB-1582MKII Amp

I owned the RB-1070 of maybe 125 or 135 per side into 8 and found it incapable of properly driving my panels.
In looking thru the specs prior to my selling it (owned for <6 months) I found NO mention of 4ohm power. Though Rotel did rate the amp for 'bridged' into 8 ohms.
Ideally, bridged power should represent 4 ohm per channel power but the 'bump' from 8 ohm was minimal. I think bridged power was 330 watts?

Sorry, not for me.

Had I bought the upline RB-1090 with lots more power? Maybe that was the keeper?
Too much is never enough
