Selling because way too powerful for my tiny home, especially since the arrival of our first child! This is a SERIOUSLY POWERFUL audiophile quality amplifier and pre-pro which deserves a home where it can be unleashed in all it's incredibly high fidelity (low THD, high SNR) power. American quality you would expect from the highly respected Rotel! Both in excellent fully working condition, including original heavy-duty packaging, manuals & remote control. I have recently had this unit cleaned, serviced & electrically inspected. Note this is a USA powered model so will require a transformer to use in Australia. You can buy an one here for approx $150 (eg http://www.tortech.com.au/step-down-transformer-australia/usa-step-down-transformer/1000w-transformer-economy-step-down). Have already taken $200 off my asking price to allow for transformer cost to buyer! Rotel RMB-1095 (1000W RMS, 5Ch.Amp): (Brand new RRP in 2003 was US $2000) You won't find many of these on the market anywhere in the world because they are so good that people hold onto them & snap them up when offered for sale. EVERYWHERE you look your will find OUTSTANDING reviews of this amp - here are some examples: * http://www.audioreview.com/cat/amplification/amplifiers/rotel/rmb-1095/prd_123774_1583crx.aspx * http://www.excelsis.com/1.0/entry.php?sectionid=16&entryid=33 * http://www.audioholics.com/amplifier-reviews/rotel-rmb-1095 * What Hi*Fi gave the RMB-1095 a FULL 5 stars! Here is the official product page with all the important details + more reviews: http://www.rotel.com/NA/products/ProductDetails.htm?Id=2&Tab=1&Pic=1 200 Watts RMS output/Channel into 8 Ohms, all Channels Driven, 20 Hz - 20 kHz Two Rotel toroidal transformers Â· Balanced and unbalanced inputs Â· British slit foil capacitors THD: < 0.03% Frequency Response: 15Hz - 100kHz +0.5dB, -3dB Signal to Noise Ratio: 116dB MFR: 15 Hz - 100 kHz +0.5 - 3 dB Dimensions (W x H x D): 432 x 237 x 410 mm Weight: 34kg (that should give you an idea of the build quality!) Use all 5-channels for an incredible, immersive multi-channel experience, or use 4 channels in a quasi-bi-amp configuration to drive difficult speakers. Each amplifier channel has both an RCA unbalanced input and an XLR balanced input for audiophile quality signal input. The 1095 performs well with demanding speakers & difficult loads. The sound is smooth & never harsh, even at very loud volume. It has a slightly laid back high end, which is very appealing, since not only are many movie sound tracks relatively bright, but many CDs & digital files are as well. Regardless of how sibilant voices are in the source, the 1095 handles them with ease. Rotel has taken into account the probability that the consumer will listen at quite loud volume, so their laid back high end characteristic makes high volume more tolerable. Rotel came into the high power amplifier arena late, so they had to keep the price lower & performance higher than other audiophile models to break into that category - this unit outcompetes many higher priced ones from the same era (circa. 2000).
