    Title says it all..what would you replace if you could?

    For me its a dedicated CD player like the 1072....or the 1090 power amp for my mains. I might be able to swing the CD player but the amp is a much bigger outlay of funds 8O

    I REALLY want to get into multichannel audio (ie both DVD-A and SACD). Unfortunately, Rotel doesn't yet make a universal player. (Rotel, PLEASE make a universal player!) Sooooooo, at the moment I shall be content with the 1055/1075 set-up, and try to ward off any upgrade-itis.

      Thats a very good question Andrew...one that is not very easy to answer :cry:

      I just got the 1075 yesterday and it is amazing for its rated 120 x 5. I tend to believe Rotel severely underrates their amps on paper, which is a good thing

      Umm... I'd have to say I'd replace my Pioneer Elite receiver with the 1066 pre/pro. My receiver does a decent job, but being 4 years old, I'd imagine the 1066 would blow it away in sound quality for sure.

      Next on my list would be the 1080 or 1090, to power the Def tech 7001S towers I am getting. Then the single disc cd player, and a Universal player from Rotel would indeed be on everyones list, as well as mine!

      Sorry, I couldn't stick wish just one. I am in the process of getting rid of all my Elite gear, and going the Rotel route!

        I would go with the RDV 1060, gets me quality DVD playback and maybe then I purchase a few DVD-A.

          I am replacing my Denon 1602 with a Rotel RSX-1055. Should be a nice upgrade :LOL:

              1066 -> 1098

              Would be nice to access all the setup menus for all the equipment without turning on the projector.

                I'm at the end of Rotels capabilities. I've got the RSP1098, I've got the RB1090 and I've got the RCD991 (till now still the best rotel cd player).

                So, my only choice is to go beyond Rotel which I will do by switching amps to Parasound.

                I would have liked a dvd player from Rotel, but my current universal player is good enough for my needs.

                  I think you already do...unless the 1072 comes out much better then the 1070 did

                    All my gear is Rotel. 1098, 1095, and 1080. I would like to add a dedicated CD player, but probably won't.

                      Oh thats easy.
                      I'd replace the wife. She goes loud enough but her tone is shrill and she hates the rest of my equipment.
                      Obviously I'm kidding. She likes the equipment.
                      I'd replace her with an RMB 1090

                          I guess the 1098, although I'm satisfied with the 1066 enough to live with it until even a next generation arrives.

                            Since my rack is all new now, can't have enough power, so a 1090 would do.

                              Still Waiting on a Universal Disc Player.... I guess that I would have to pick the RDV-1060 as my Sony S9000-ES is on the fritz.... the actual drive is clicking with about a third of my DVD's (anyone hear of that before?)?

                                    I would replace my Marantz AV560U DD/DTS pre/pro and RC5000i remote with a nice all BLACK 1098. Maybe one of us will get lucky and Rotel will be reading this thread and make one of our dreams come true. :righton:

                                      Wallacebw, Regarding you,re clicking noise from you,re dvd player, my Kinergetics KCD40 Platinum cd player had a clicking noise in it that was so bad that it made the disc skip. Thinking "basket case" I took it to a repair shop and to my surprize the transport was way out of adjustment. Payed the man and haven't heard a hiccup from it since.

                                        Easy...

                                        My first thought was immediately to swap my Pioneer 656A dvd player for the Rotel RDV-1060.

                                          I would also have to go for the RDV-1060 to replace my antiquated Panasonic DVD player. I contemplated the RMB-1080 or 1090, but with the 1098 and the RMB-1095 my music sounds fine in stereo mode.

                                          Regards,

                                            Is it? I would like to think my RCD990 is a little better.

                                            As for my equipment, my (analogue) stereo is Rotel and I like it the way it is. Combined with Marantz for HT I don't have any wishes in upgrading at this point.

                                                Well, I have had a 1075 amp for a couple of years and love it. However, I am using a Yamaha 995 as a preamp, and it is about 3-4 years old. I have a SACD player.

                                                I would definitely swap the 995 for a RSP-1066. The 1066 would be a good "fit" for the rest of the system (decidedly mid-fi), with the 1075 amp, 222ES SACD player, and GR Research DIY speakers.

                                                    Id have to go with the 1098 preamp.

                                                      Okay I've decided to refine my selection based on the fact my old one was rather broad... :LOL:

                                                      I'm already in the midst of replacing my Yamaha RX-Z1 with the 1066/1075 But if I already had them I suppose I'd want the 1098 and 1095 :P

                                                      Other than that I think I'd upgrade my Denon DVD-1600 with the RDV-1060. Especially if they updated it to include SACD.

                                                      A dedicated CD player would be nice too

                                                      Still too broad?

                                                        Hmmm, not sure I can answer this one. Everything I have is already rotel. 1098, 1090, 1095, and a 1080 dvd player. I don't see rotels new DVD as a worth while step up. So I guess I will say I am content, unless rotel comes out with a DVD player that will play DVD R discs. I will have to wait.

                                                          1066 to 1098 just because I could (that is if I had the funds).

                                                              I would definitely say I would replace my Yamaha RXV-995 receiver (used as a pre-amp) with the RSP-1066 (I have been drooling over this processor for a few months).

                                                              George King: If you make the jump before I do, please let me know how it works out for you (looks like we both have the same receiver - and aspirations)

Perhaps the 1055 to start with but I'll probably wait and get the 1066/1075 combo, unless of course there's something better by the time I have saved enough for purchase.

                                                                      I sold my RDV-985 and my JA-20ES minidisc.

Tomorrow I am putting a pile of cd's on the player and will compare CD quality between my trusted rcd-975 and the dvd-2900. If the 2900 is equal or even wins, I will buy one.

                                                                      Next is to save some money, get rid of the horrid denon 3801. This will fund a rsp-1066, or if saving takes bit longer the next generation 1066.

                                                                        I have been eyeing the 1066 for awhile. Unfortunately, I am willing to bet that you upgrade first. I built new speakers, and there went the HT budget. Plus we have had some home upgrade bills, so money is tight. The Yamaha/Rotel combination is ok for HT, but is lacking for music, and these days I am listening to a lot of music with the SACD player.

                                                                        Of course, if Rotel is reading this, and wants to donate a 1066, I will write a wonderful review :LOL:

I don't see rotels new DVD as a worth while step up. So I guess I will say I am content, unless rotel comes out with a DVD player that will play DVD R discs. I will have to wait.

                                                                            But I need to upgrade my job first, which seems to be taking a lot longer than originally anticipated. And a house upgrade is ahead of HT upgrades on the priority list as well.
