    To any fellow Canadian HT nuts, if you have a dealer in the area that sells Rotel could you find me a price on a Rotel RMB-1066 AMP(6x60W). Its repalcing the RB-976MkII. I only have one dealer in the area that sells them and he has given me a list price of $999CDN. What should I be looking to pay for it($850, $900CDN???). I'm really interested in this amp because it can be Bridged to 3x150W to power my Paradigm Mini Monitors and I figure I can add another down the road to get 6x150. Thanks for any help.

    Kevin,
    Do you mean bi-amping the Mini-Monitors (one channel drives the tweeter, one for the woofer)? Am I correct to assume that the Mini Monitors have dual speaker posts?

    Dave,
    Below is a link to the AMP in question. I am not talking about Bi-amping the speakers, but changing the power output of the AMP from 6x60w to 3x150W by flicking a switch on the back of the AMP. You just have to make sure the speakers being driven are 8ohms, which my Paradigms are. After doing some hunting for a 3 channel AMP in the 3x120+W range I've come to the conclusion that it would cost me $1200+. The Rotel RMB-1066 List Price is $999 and I was already told they will take 10% off, but I am trying to find out if I could do better. Any help would be appreciated.
