    Selling my silver RSP-1066. v2.25, 200MHZ video bandwith. Mint condition. Not a scratch. Bought on the 2002-10-19. Original box, manual, everything.

    Would prefer someone in the Montréal or Ottawa region because I had some bad internet selling experiences. Shipping in Canada or US. Paypal payment or COD.

    Asking 1500$ CDN. Buyer pay for all shipping costs.

    I just bought an Anthem AVM20, that's why...

    Lévesque,
    congrats on the new Anthem, just curious, did you end up auditioning the 1098? If I remember correctly, we had some discussions on the merit of 1098. I was at one point had decided to check it out, but Rotel kept delaying the roll-out, so I gave in and went with B&K Reference 50. I did audition AVM20 too, and decided I like the sonic quality of the B&K better than the Anthem, both are great though! I still have the Rotel 1065 and it powers my second system.

    Frances

    I went for the AVM20 over the Rotel for 4 reasons:

    1) I was tired of waiting for the RSP-1098.

    2) No balanced XLR outputs. Big low down for me (my house is full of ground problems and awful white noise...).

    3) The Rotel is a new product = bugs for sure... And the BM fix for the RSP-1066 took 1 year to come! So I'm a little bit afraid...

    4) The Anthem is a more "mature" product, with bug well identified and solve fast by Sonic Frontiers. I feel more confortable...

    reasons 1 thru 3 are right on! XLR is definitely has to be available as an alternative at that price point (and it is obviously a make or break deal in your case). I went with Ref50 and AV125.7 (125X7)and XLR connectivity between the two.
