    New to Forum

    How's it going everyone? I'm new to the forums and not quite yet a full fledged Rotel member yet(but will be as soon as I figure out if I need the 1065 or the 1055 will do.) Just wanted to introduce myself and ask what is a fair-good price for either one. Im upgrading from a very old state of the art... pro-logic based HT setup and just picked up the final piece of my speaker set(paradigm sub.) I am from Houston if geographical location is of importance or helps.

    Welcome to the forum DigitalTexas,

    Generally speaking, people are able to talk the price down around 10%, but that really varies. For some, the dealer won't come down at all; some dealers have even tried to jack the price up a bit. Other dealers are more liberal. It would help if two or more dealers offered Rotel in your area. That would allow for your shopping for the best price.

      Welcome to the forum! Good luck with the purchase. As for the price Keith's 10 percent seems to be about the norm but there's other issues at play as well such as trade in policy's and future support. Sometimes too your first purchase at a dealer might not get a large percent off but the next ones might as you build up a relationship with him...sometimes a purchase now is like an investment in an upgrade later

        Welcome to the forum Digital.

        It seems that the price percentage can vary from 10-15% off MSRP, however I recall someone in the forum stating that in Houston, they did not do very well in the negotiating process (a furniture store which sells electronics, if I recall correctly), they went to a surburb of Houston to get a better deal. Perhaps that forum member will elaborate. In essence be sure to check various locations for pricing, trade-up policies, customer relations, etc.,

        I had a trade-up policy on my speakers for one year, and on my pre/pro for 90 days (which I used to update my pre/pro), however I didn't receive a large percentage discount due to the trade-up policy, but it sure is nice to have the option.

        Hope this helps,
