    Looking for a unit for my sons house with limited funding.Would you choose the Rotel 1066, the Sony E9000es,a Sony receiver,(4es or 5es),or the Denon 3802. I am not sure about the Rotel pricing except msrp, but I can get the Denon for $560, the Sony 4es for $540, the 5es for $649 or the Tae9000es for $729. Also the Sony 7es for $1229 but thats more than I want to spend.
    thanks as always for your input

    Of your listed choices.
    First lets toss out the Sony 7es for $1229,
    As you said (but thats more than I want to spend)

    Toss out the Tae9000es for $729, I had it for a few years,
    Nice unit but it's time is long gone. (outdated)

    Rotel 1066 Cost ? AMP? now are you still within your budget?

    With the remaining on your list, That would really depend on how you like your sound,

    Some-what laid back sound (Denon)
    A bit in your face, But exciting (Sony)

    If it was for myself or a close friend,
    I would say the Denon, Spend or save the extra cash
    toward speakers, or the next upgrade.

    Have fun,
    I really can't see you going wrong with any of the remaining.
