Integrated Amp for harsh sounding mp3 playback?


Hiya all,

Got Mission M51s and a el cheapo mp3 cd player. Got a 30 RMS Marantz PM4000 amp but I think I should upgrade.
Mp3 files generally are harsh sounding, should I go for Rotel RA-02 or Denon 1055R?
Which would work best?

Thanks in advance

You might want to consider buying a good CD/DVD player and seeing how much that affects the sound. MP3s can only sound so good, but some player/receiver combos do better jobs than others.



Forgot to add- I already have a dedicated system with NAD components. This set up is for the bedroom only.

Well, if your Marantz PM 4000 is already too bright sounding for you (with MP3 files) then a Rotel RA-02 should not be on your list.
Try a NAD C320BEE or Arcam diva 65 which are really smooth sounding amps.
