    I ripped this off someone on the AVSForum.
    Rotel have not updated their online content (which reflects the 2001 series) however they do have a new 2002 PDF catalog with some *lovely* new products.

    Looks like they leaked the new catalog:

    Of note is their dead sexy looking RSP-1066 which has dpl2, ac3-ex and dts-es discrete and hdcd.
    There's no doubt that this looks a lot more aesthetically pleasing than the 950.
    Download, have a look and drool. There's a back panel shot as well but this is more a glamour catalog rather than a technical one.
    Looks like an interesting year all round.

    For those who haven't yet visited the Separates section of this forum, you can find a discussion of the new Rotel catalog pdf and the RSP-1066 pre/pro already in progress, on this Rotel Pre/Pro thread.

    Hopefully it "reviews better" than Rotel's latest pre/pro's. (the rsp-985 on www.audioreview.com)
    Got the Crystal DSP chip. I'll *bet* that's the same chip as the Outlaw.
    Wish it had more than one multichannel analog input (SACD/DVD-A).
    Gotta like the sub xover!
    But does it deliver 6.1/7.1 sound from 5.1 discs? [​IMG]
    Thanks for the links Tony!
