    What are the main differences between the Rotel 1066 and the 1068?

    I am probably going to snatch up a 1066 because of thier low price now that the 1068 is out but I would like to know if there is any compelling reason that i should get the 1068.

    I am having trouble finding tech documentation on teh 1066 on Rotel's web stie.

    Thanks for the advise.

    Oh and also should i be conserned lack of DVI or resolution problems such as upconversion/downconversion of resolution?

    I am assuming that the 1066 is able to accept 720p HDTV "signal" and not just "EDTV"

    Thanks

    Check out the Rotel forum on www.htguide.com.

    Also, a review of the 1068 in the latest SUAV (the old SGHT). From both of those sources, I get the impression that the 1068 is closer to the 1098 re performance than the 1066.

    Ok so let me ask one more questions as i am some what new to this, is it better to get one large amp block to drive all my channels or say a bunch of stereo amps to drive my channels.

    I am thinging of going with the RSP-1068 and some RB-1080 for the from channels and the RB-1070 for the rest or i could just go with the 1095.

    Thanks for the advise.

    Patrick I'd suggest you go with a 1080 for the fronts and a 1075 for the rest. That combo is the most common setup and is the best mix for HT and music.
