    Hi All,

    I've recently sold my Onkyo 676 and have decided to go seperates for my next upgrade.

    I live in a 2bedroom unit which is quite open and large, I have a set of B&W 603 S3, 601 S2 and LCR600. I'm considering the following upgrade

    Rotel RSP-1066 pre/pro
    Rotel 1075 5ch amp

    I've heard the B&W are wonderful mates to the rotel line up, I would consider the 1080 later to run my mains for a 7.1 setup. I've read the bass management issues, most threads are from 2001/2000, can anyone confirm these have been addressed?

    Also, where is the best place to obtain Rotel gear in Sydney? I generally deal with Len Wallis for all my audio gear, is Silver a hard finish to find in Sydney? Anyone know some good prices for the above? I'm looking at grabbing the 1075 first next week with the pre/pro to follow..

    Source at the moment is a Denon DVD-1600. I'm on 60% music, 40% home theatre..

    Suggestions, ideas?

    Hi Kris,
    So you're feeling neglected? [​IMG]
    I can't speak to the bass management correction directly though it should be fixed by now or at the least shortly due to be. Can't your local dealers confirm?
    Sounds like a wonderful system. The 1075 doesn't look much bigger than the 1066. Should make for a streamlined setup.

    Ill speak to my retailer next week, they could confirm. I have a SoundStyle XS310 rack, Im hoping I can fit the 1080,1066 and 1075 in it ALONG with the Denon. But I like having the B&W center on the 2nd shelf, i dont think its going to fit [​IMG]

    Try the HT forum there KrisK. The Audio one is a bit quiet.

    Melbourne.
    My HT system is basic at the moment but ramping up soon.
    Try posting your query in the HT section - you'll get some responses, I'm sure. Lots of Rotel fans (not so many B&W) on the Plaza.

    I'd be interested to know what you find out about the 1066.

    Can you update the thread if you find somewhere here that sells it?
