Buy Rotel Online?

Does anyone know of some sites to price and/or buy new Rotel gear online? I've searched and searched and there are very few places that even carry Rotel in the US.

I picked up an RCD-1070 the other day. I have to say it's nice, and I did a sidy by side comparison with my H/K and the Rotel sounds much better other than some minor interferance that I'm getting from the analog ICs. I'll figure that out later though.

The only problem I have with it, is I just can't justify the cost. I mean, it's only a CD player! So it's going back soon.

So does anyone know where to look for late model Rotel stuff? Has anyone used/heard the RCC-1055? If so can you tell me how it compares to the RCD-1070?

Thanks.

    Phuz:

    Rotel has a very strict policy on on-line sales in order to protect thier distributors and pricing. The Rotel.com web site does provide retail pricing (drop down menu on the top left side of home page) but I have never found any on-line retail sites in the US that will quote Rotel.

    Audiogon.com will have some used Rotel gear...I think I saw a RCD-1055 for sale a week ago and someone had recently sold a RCD-1070 that they claimed was only 9 months old for $450.00. Also a RCD-991 (older model with balanced inputs and dither control) was for sale on the site.

    Sorry for the additional post but I forgot there is a site, audioemporium.com, that does list descriptions of the various models in the Rotel line and some opinions on the differences between models. But the pricing is strctly per the Rotel suggested retail.

    Get out of my head, Phuz!! ;) I spent yesterday morning with a google search looking all over for Rotel online, and the audioemporium was the only place I found. Would you mind shooting me an email if you come up with anything?
