    DVD-A only review of RDV-1060

    Hi-Fi News this month did a DVD-A only review of various players ranging from a £170 Panasonic to a £2000 Toshiba. I think it safe to say that they loved it.

    ''This is clearly the classiest player so far', remarked one listener, pre-empting the final decision of the panel.'

    'Described variously as 'gorgeous' and 'luxurious', the RDV-1060 drew us further into every DVD-A in our selection.'

    'Toshiba's £2000 SD-9500 ...... .Here is a player that sounds very close to the very best but, as if to prove the last step is often the furthest, not close enough. That step was only taken by the new RDV-1060 from Rotel...'

    'This is DVD-A at its very best.'


    Shame there was no video review as well. However Rotel appear to be on a bit of a roll recently. In Hi-Fi Choice's System Builder section last month they chose the RA-1062, describing it as 'The cream of the current integrated crop'.

    Looking forward to a review of the 1098, particularly if it was stacked up against the likes of Arcam, Meridian, Tag and Bryston.

      Thanks for passing that along. What amazes me most is how well Rotel always seems to do in these face-to-face competitions, especially against very notible and costly competitors. Almost too good to be true.

      As an example, the Rotel 1066/1075 held its own against some very esteemed products costing, at times, considerably more. Wonder how the 1098/1095 combo would have fared? It seems to me that would have been a knock-out punch and it still would have been less expensive than some of the competition. Good going Rotel.
