Yet another great find
Score. Amazingly, I picked up a Rotel RDV-1040 DVD/CD player complete with remote at the local thrift for. . . $8.99 today. I would give it an 8/10 (maybe 7.5 for the picayune) cosmetically, and I just had it playing "So What" on the Miles Davis Kind of Blue Super Bitmap CD and it sounded very, very nice. Haven't checked its video performance (although I really don't care) nor have I done any comparisons. Good deal no matter what. I'll try to get a picture or two up tomorrow. last thing I need is another disc player, but I've always really liked Rotel stuff. At one point I had a Rotel 1070 preamp driving an TA-N80ES amp, and that was a nice set up. More to follow.
