Hegel Rost

Hi,
In an effort to downsize I'm thinking about integrated amps. I've read about Hegel but never heard any. I would use a pair of Polk 703 and a sub. The Rost looks about right. Anybody using Hegel with 703s?

    How exactly are you looking to downsize? What features are important to you?

    Since I moved from two systems to one there's lots of stuff. Now have a tv, tivo and the hifi. The hifi is 11 components plus the modem and the wifi router. I need to play flac files, have a great dac with xlr outs,use a Sonora Ultrarender. Play fm radio, tv sound, vinyl. Would like to have fixed outputs for the House amp. The Rost can do all but fixed outs. Just thinking better WAF. I need to use 2 power conditioners plug everything in to ac! Its a lot.

    Integrated 2.1 with room correction and dac. This one has all the optional boards hope it sounds as good as the bat combo

    Let me know how you like it. It gets a lot of talk on the audiogon forum.
