    It appears neither are available in the US yet. Europe has them though.

    Were the MSRPs listed anywhere? I didn’t see it on the website or I’m the video.

    I think the idea was that Ken believed in great sound at affordable prices and when they were putting this line together, it was that theme that was the overlying idea.

    I love my Rotel RCC 1055 CD player...so much so that I bought another one a couple of years ago to serve as a backup in case something happens to my main unit.

    Nice, I'll have to check out that integrated!

    I'm still searching for a pair of the Boston Acoustics M350 speakers that I think he had some input on. I missed out on a few ops... now they just don't show up any more....COVID-19 has not helped.
