    My local Rotel dealer is asking for $2,615 for the Rotel RMB-1095 + Rotel RSP-1066 combo. Is this a good deal?

    If I'm correct, Rotel has a pretty slim profit margin (compared to other brands) for the dealer. The list price of the 1066 is $1500 and the 1095, I think, but am not sure, is $2000. So, if I have this right, the dealer is discounting from $3500 msrp to $2615, a roughly 25% discount. To me, that sounds like he's giving you a really nice deal. Again, I'm not sure of the retail price of the 1095. Anyone else?

    Also, you'd probably find the best feedback if you posted this over at Club Rotel at HTGuide.com. Here's the link

    The 1066 list price is $1,499 and the list price for the 1095 is $1,999. So total list price is $3,498. Many Rotel dealers offer no discount, but 10%-15% seems to be the norm. So I'd say you're getting a good deal.

    unless its open boxed, demo, or something, that is a killer deal...

    most rotel items get 15% at most, although, i have heard that the 1095 doesn't sell that well, so maybe you can get a bigger discount on it....

    I work for a Rotel dealer and that is a very good deal.You might also consider a RSX-1055 receiver.It is a RSP-1066 pre/pro, but also has a tuner and five 75 watt high current amps!!.The receiver is about $300.00 less retail.Check out this months "Perfect Vision " magazine for a 1055 review.

    Haris--
    I see you're not local (UAE - not even close!) Is that $2615 US and is it a dealer you can trust?

    Daryl RL,

    Yes, because he is listed on the Rotel website.
