  2. Vintage Rotel - power on speaker pop!

    Two Channel Audio
    I have been ignoring this for awhile, just writing it off to my use of a vintage Rotel unit to power my desktop system (Mac Mini => optical out => Audioengine D1 => Rotel RV - 555 => high level out => Pinnacle Subsonic => PSB Image B4). When I turn on the Rotel, I get this hum/crackle that many...

    Hi, I need some help figuring out this processor. I looked at the manual but I need a second opinion as it is very confusing to me. http://www.rotel.com/content/manuals/rsp1068.pdf If I select Small options, it says it will apply a low pass filter to the subwoofer and to the main speakers...

  8. Rotel RSP 1066

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I have a buddy selling a "NEW" still in the box Rotel RSP 1066 for $275.00. I'm not sure if I need a surround processor and amp or just a decent A/V receiver. I feel at the cost of the 1066 and a decent amp I may be able to get more power then a receiver for the same amount of money? Any...

    Hey, anyone own or have knowledge of this particular Rotel 2 ch amp? I was about to purchase one and the only info I can find is a brief owner's manual that had only the most basic specs, and no maintenance info or otherwise. A picture of the innards shows a large toroidal transformer along...

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Hey guys, I have a Rotel RX-975 but looking for a cheap remote. Is there a list of compatible Rotel Brand remotes for this receiver? Or what remote would one recommend? Also I have a Sony Universal that is said to work but when programmed, it does nothing.

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hey guys, so lately my left channel has been not working but usually I can turn it off then back on or standby it and unstandby it and it would be ok. Well today it is not working almost entirely. Is there a likely component that is going bad for this to be happening?

  18. Should I get Rotel RMB-1066?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Used $200, Im assuming this is a good deal as they are going for twice that on ebay. Would this benefit me over using the onkyo 3007 internal amps? Is rotel a good name? Im a complete rookie at separates, any input would be great.

  20. Vintage Rotel RV-555 - Anyone familiar?

    Two Channel Audio
    I picked up this unit on ebay a little while back and while it powers on and plays quite nicely (very nice - in fact), it is pretty dusty and a little beat up. The main unit chassis is a little loose. I was thinking of having a qualified tech take a look at is and repair anything necessary (got...
