    The new Rotel 1056 is coming out or is out and I thought maybe someone would know the answers to these questions:

    1. How many component ins does it have?
    2. Does it ship with Pro Logic IIx?
    3. Is it upgradable like the other Rotel products?
    4. Does anyone think I will be able to get it for $1,000(list is $1,299)?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    1) 3 inputs

    2) I don't think it has PLIIx

    3) ?

    4) Usually goes for less than MSRP

    Typically most dealers seem to offer 10 to 15 percent off..with most coming in at 10 percent or their abouts.

    Can anyone give me a rundown on what I'd gain by getting a 1067 besides the extra 2 channels of power? I can't imagine that is the only thing you'd get right?

    Edit: Does the 1056 have some form of multiroom?

    Yes the 1056 has multizone capabilities and as far as the 1067 goes IMO I'd rather see you get the 1056 and add a 1080 or 1075 power amp if you have the funds to get the 1067.

    I don't have the funds for that. I'm not 1000% certain I can squeeze in the 1056 with a 2 channel amp(cheapie) but I'm trying to make it work and wondering what I will be missing between the 2.

    shane for rear duty if funds are that tight just use any old receiver from a pawn shop etc...you can always upgrade that later if need be[​IMG]
