      Good review on a great piece of equipment. Since I'm a Club Parasound moderator, what I found interesting is that they mentioned the Parasound Halo C1, with a 5000 Pound price tag. HOLY CRAP! That's about $8,000 USD, whereas here stateside the C1 retail price is $6,000 USD. I feel for our UK brothers!

        Chris,

        Feel even more for your Aussie mates. The Parasound C1 retails for $AUD 15,999 or $US 12,000 - talk about extortion.

        This makes the retail on the Rotel RSP 1098 of $AUD $4,999 a relative bargain

          Wow geoff, I thought we in Europe where screwed by the electronics companies, but you guys are screwed big time. 12000 USD for the C1 is just silly.

            No wonder... I'd go for the Rotel there, too!

                Yep, in the UK for the price of a C1 I could get TWO 1098's and have enough change for 100 DVD's.....

                C1 therefore never entered my 1098 buying thought process.

                  The C2 is a lot cheaper and still sounds the same as the C1. Sure you don't get the TFT, but who cares

                    Can't help my self, but I do think Rotel aslo have a cheaper version without TFT that sounds really great, 1066/1068

                        The 1066 is by far *NOT* a 1098 without TFT. However looking at what the 1068 will offer it could be the cheaper 1098 without TFT (and also without a few extra's).
