Exactly. Why would you want an integrated when you can go with separates for the same price and getter performance.

I'm the one that turned Arinoth on the Emotiva because there is no better price/performance option in the stereo world right now. Plus you can always ask them if they have any B stock which will save a few more bucks. So not only will you get a system that is better than Rotel (IMO) but you also have more options later on if you want a bigger amp etc you don't have to replace the whole thing. Emotiva also sells a great DAC as well. At the current prices you can get the USP-1, XPA-200, and the XDA-2 DAC for $1267. Obviously there is taxes and shipping but with the opportunity for B-stock you wouldn't be too much over your $1250 and possibly below.

Create something idiot proof and they will make a better idiot.
