When it comes to receivers everyone talks about Denon, Yamaha, Marantz, Onkyo, H/K, etc. However nobody mentions Rotel. I was just browsing Rotel's site and I came across the RSX-1055. It looks like a pretty sweet piece. Here's the link: RSX-1055 It's a 5.1 receiver that decodes everything the RSP-1066 does. It's also software upgradable. And the feature I like the most is if you add a separate stereo amp for the mains, the onboard mains can be switched to power the surround backs. How cool is that? The price seems pretty reasonable too. Retail $1300. I was originally thinking about getting the Marantz 8200, but I'm definitely going to look into 1055 now.
