Anyone that has specific experience with this guy or even better with the combo please shoot away. I have a dealer who will let it go for $999 CDN here in TO!

My system is Front 60 still may upgrade to 80 not sure yet HELL of a time deciding if I should, QS8 side surrounds, 150 center, 350 sub and m3ti rears. Also would be interested to see what you recommend for connecting config of this system for the best output.

He also has a 1066 which is bridge capable but not sure that this one is as well> I mean the 1075?

Let me know what you guys think and if you have any better ideas I don't mind spending a couple hundred each way> not that it ever goes the (-) way

Oh and the receiver I am using is the yammie HTR 5760> yes a little bright (very clean and clear type of bright) and I do mean only a little which is great for all the stuff I listen to + it's a nice combo with all the Axiom speakers I just picked up. They seem to be in harmony together.

Your comments are appreciated, thanks in advance!!

Hey Paul there is a bunch of Rotel/Axiomites around here, I'm suprised they have not responded yet My understanding is that it is a great combination...

We do have a good bit of us that run Rotel equipment with our Axioms.I have no experiance with the model in question.I do know that the RB 1080 sure does a great job with the M80s.

The 1075 is the 5x120 wpc amp. The 1075 will be very capable of driving the 4 ohm M80 speakers with no problem.

*But*

If you'll be running a 7.1 system I'd almost forgo the 1075 and opt for a 2 ch 200 wpc (300 @ 4 ohms) 1080 to run the M80 mains and use the 120 wpc(?) Yamaha receiver to drive the surrounds. That would make a killer system! *But*, that's me!

I was thinking Spiff had a Rotel receiver? I'm almost sure Thyname does. I'm not familiar with the 1066, it must be the predecessor to the 1068?

I have Rotel/Axiom combo for my stereo and sound really, really great!!! See my sig below. Rotel multichannel separates would be killer as well, I assume. However, the latest pre/pro or 7 channel processor is RSP-1068 and not 1066 (older version). Or, if you have 3k you can get top of the line 1098 7 channel processor/preamp!

I almost forgot: I know you have got a great deal on 1075, but I would also suggest you have a look at RMB-1077 It has just come out recently, digital amplifier 7X100 wpc, and retails for USD 2500. I was a little bit skeptical on digital amplifiers, but then I read some great reviews from some people at Club Rotel, whose opinion I appreciate. Of course, never had the chance to listen to it myself. Check it out if you have the money.

One additional thing, do you guys think I will see the benefit of amplifying all the speakers except maybe for the m3ti I use for the rears?

And if so, I thought I read a thread or reply to one about how much watts ideal for feeding into different speakers or something like that about the ideal ratio of power (not volume) between main to center to surrounds and rears etc. I could be wrong not sure that it was here but maybe? You guys have been arounf much longer so I guess you will point me in the right direction if so be.

The discussions was not based only on watts but that's all I can recall right now.

Paul, since from what you say your 5760 has more than adequate power for your setup, you'll get no real benefit from adding a separate amplifier which will simply provide unused headroom. If whatever discussion you refer to wasn't based only on watts it may well have involved some overactive imaginations.
