Damn this obsession! Well, I've convinced myself that I need another upgrade. I have a Yamaha RX-V1 currently, which is an excellent unit. I only paid $999 for it new a few months ago, & it still has warranty. With the remote, it will bring what I paid nearly. It is lacking in a few areas. #1 2 channel listening. It doesn't really sound warm, but it is detailed. I'm not impressed too much. #2 Useless modes VS. modes I need. I don't give a damn about 40+ DSP modes. I use DTS, DD 5.1, & 2 channel. I don't really care for all the effects. #3 I need Dolby Pro Logic II. I watch a bunch of "digital" cable, and regular PL is crap. I also have a PS2, and same as above. #4 Remote. I got the RAV-2000 off ebay, & I never use it. I am NOT a touchpad guy I've found. Here is my dilemma. I was super impressed listening to my current speakers with the RSX-1055 at my semi-local dealer. I'm not super impressed with the dealer though. Any Texas Rotel owners? His room was MUCH smaller than mine, & he had it sound dampened like a MoFo. My room is BIG, & is a sonic black hole. I'm wondering if I replace the RX-V1 with the Rotel, will I be giving up much sound quality wise? My Yamaha has more stated power, as in 110X8. 2 of those are effects channels. It does have 110 to the rear center. The Rotel is 75X5, add a stereo amp & you have 7.1. I COULD add a sweet 200X2 amp to the mains, I'm sure they won't mind! OR, I could do the 1066 & 1075 combo & make the move to seperates. Suggestions?
