drew, wid and others:

I went to the rotel website and there was something about rotel not selling over the internet and through e-tailers.

How/ where did you buy your rotel equipment?

Just curious.

The Rat.

Only authorized stores for Rotel, no online dealers whatsoever!!! Check Rotel website for authorized sellers near you. You can buy used as well, through audiogon and ebay, but of course have to take the risk associated with used items too.

Hey! I bought THYNAME"S Rotel RX-1052!!! (Thanks again, Skerdi!) It's a sweety. Built like a cement block and sounds great. If you can afford it, get it and enjoy!

Not gonna' happen. I usually don't buy anything big on line. The 60's were the biggest purchase that I ever made on line, sight unseen. With the new addition, I will buy locally. The top two contenders both have dealers in my area. More time on the phone today, and I have it narrowed down to two:
NAD C372/C422 or Rotel. Will decide this weekend.
Thanks for the advice!

No on line Rotel dealers that I could find. Had to buy local, well 300 miles away local. But this is Alaska, nothing is close by.

My preference is for the NAD set-up. Again 50 more watts is 50 more watts. I think the NAD sound, which I like better is "creamy smooth & rich". The Rotel is like that but not quite, maybe a little electronic on the top end. I don't particularly like my C422 tuner ONLY because you have to twist the big dial to select a station instead of pressing buttons.

I guess that in Alaska, 300 miles is "close?" LOL!!

Turns out that there is a Rotel dealer here in town. Went by there yesterday afternoon.

Anchorage is the hub where rural Alaskan residents go to shop for things not found in smaller town stores. It's about 300 miles away from Valdez (where I live). But Valdez is probably the most beautiful place in Alaska. It's like living in a national park. Plus, I hate traffic, but enjoy the ability to leave from my driveway on my snowmachine or dirt bike to go play. And we don’t have to worry about locking doors, or keeping a real close eye on the kids here either.

The power thing has definitely got my attention, even though it is probably overkill. Their tuner is VERY expensive. They don't even stock them. They recommend just getting a Yamaha, which will save about $150.00.
Don't you just have all your stations preset? I thought you could just push a button, or use the remote?
