    Pristine and never used floor model RB-981. I have owned this amp for almost a year and never used it. Bought it from a store going out of business. I do not have the original box but I do have the manual. Double boxed shipped UPS ground for free at my asking price to the lower 48. $400 or best offer.

    I have one of these RB981 Rotels and it is a giant killer, IMO the finest sounding amp for music period, at any price. 130x2 is very conservative and bridged it puts out 360x1, I am using mine to drive 4 ten inch subwoofers(2 boxes/ 2 drivers in ea box) and it never runs out of gas.
    You will sell this guy, I have 1 if I could get yours and 1 more I would replace my Rotel 985 THX Mk2 5 channel and in my opinion have a better sounding system than I have now, which is great as it is. My speakers are NHT Super Ones and for a time I ran the 2 mains with the 981 for critical listening on 2 channel stereo.
    I will let you know, I am thinking as I write.
    I may trade or sell my 985 THX Mk2 5 channel as I would prefer using 3 of these 981s over 1 5 channel amp.
