    I am in the process of updating my gaff and am interested in the 1066 processor. Can anyone tell me if it has an audio delay feature - I am thinking of using an external scaler with my projector and plasma?

    If not, what are my options?

    Thanks

    Does nobody know for definite whether it has this feature?

    If not, how about the new 1098? When is this due and any idea how much it's gonna cost?

    Try asking Rotel themselves, either via their own website or the B&W website (B&W distribute Rotel in Europe). I asked a question of B&W concerning the 1066 processor and got an answer back within a couple of days.
    You could also try Club Rotel here.... www.htguide.com/CFBoards/index.cfm

    Thanks for that. There was a post outlining exactly my question and the Rotel answer is a definitive no and it is not fixable by firmware/software updates. I then looked at alternatives like the 1055 receiver but no audio delay either. :(

    The Rotel rep did mention that the 1098 will have this feature but no mention on definite price or release dates. Anyone know any info that is relevant for the UK markets?

    The 1098 is supposed to be out May / June time in the UK for around £1800 ... well that was the last information I had.

    As you've already found out ... there is no global delay on the 1066.

    Got a call back from Rotal delay confirming the audio delay issues that I had. None of the Rotel range have audio delay but he did say that the final spec sheet on the 1098 is still not finalised yet!!

    Release date is now end June/July so that'll be August/September before it hits the shops. Still difficult enough to get a demo of the 1066 so I guess it will be pretty much impossible to hear the 1098. I was thinking of hanging on but when I tried to get a price guesstimate, all he could confirm was that it will be less than...

    wait for it ....


    it's coming.....


    £3000


    Jesus, thats a pretty big price difference. That's into 'playing with the grown ups territory' so maybe I should start looking at 2nd hand TAG's. :confused:
