I'm currently flip-flopping between the receiver route and the separates route. As of right now when I upgrade my receiver I'm planning on going with separates. I'm 99.9% sure that I'm going to go with the Rotel RMB-1075 amp. I was wondering how Rotels pre/pro's are? I seem to remember some time ago reading about some problems with decoding DTS. Does anyone use Rotel pre/pros or have suggestions for other brands in the 1-1.5k range? I'm aware of Outlaw and I'm watching the 950 issues closely. I'd love to get a pre/pro from Cinepro, Citation, etc. but they're just too far out of my price range.
