    Thinking about buying Rotel RSX 1055 this week.
    What do you guys think? Any opinion would be appreciated.

    Hi Sleeper_red

    I have auditioned the RSX 1055 extensively. An amazing piece of equipment. An excellent buy IMO.

    Rotel makes good performing equipment, and as far as I know - fairly reliable to boot. However, in this case I don't think that it's worth $500 more than the Yamaha RX-V1400, and it also lacks the YPAO feature (automatic speaker calibration) that sets the 1400 apart from most all of it's competition.

    I seriously urge you to check out the Yamaha before you decide.

    From what I know I think it is a great piece of equipment. I am curious as to how much you are paying for the reciever, and where you are buying it.

    It also lacks Component OSD,DPL2x,Video Upconversion, and a GEQ for all channels.But the Rotel does have the double bass issue...(unless they have provided a fix for it in the last 6 months).
