I just got my latest issue of Home theater July 2003. I was suprised to see the Rotel RSX 1065 as the best mid level receiver! Quote "At $1,999 it matches or surpasses the $3,999 receivers in everything but features and is now my referance receiver" Mark Fleischmann Sept 2002 HT. Again I say thanks to the Polk Club Members for the great advice! I knew the 1065 sounded awsome but after seeing the 2003 awards I know even more serious audiophiles concider this as a good reciver! I had a lot of friends tell me why didnt you buy Onkyo or Dennon your a dealer, Why buy Rotel? All I could say was I had he best advice I could get being in the middle of the ocean & not being able to demo the receiver. Like I said the Polk Club has the most help full & knowledgeable members!
