    Rotel RMB1075 or RB985 MKII

    Have the chance of a Rotel RB985 MKII for £525 or should I hold out for the RMB 1075 for £850

    Any thoughts?

      There is a difference in sound between them but it really is pretty small. The 1075 is definitely more impressive looking with it's added dimensions (IMHO). So I guess really what it boils down to in the end is whether or not the savings is worth any potential lost warranty coverage and support issues. Haveing said that the 985 mkII is a pretty solid unit in terms of reliability. Hoped that helps a little at least.

        According to one posting on audioreview:

        the 985 MkII still has a higher capacitance value and a higher damping factor (260 vs 180) than the new model.

        Does this mean that Rotel is like car manufacturers? They've been cutting corner at places where the average consumer cannot see to keep price constant. A new car is always nice. But sometimes when you drive an older model you just come to appreciate that it is just as good or better than a new one...
