Rotel RT-1084 HD Tuner Watertown NY

Usually, any multipurpose device is a compromise of the individual components. Not the case here. Taking up only one input on a standalone system preamp, this is the best sounding Sirius tuner I've yet to hear, and as good a high-definition and FM tuner as is available in Watertown.

My Pick: The Rotel RT-1084 HD Radio/Sirius/AM-FM Tuner
List Price: $899

What I Like About It: Usually, any multipurpose device is a compromise of the individual components. Not the case here. Taking up only one input on a standalone system preamp, this is the best sounding Sirius tuner I've yet to hear, and as good a high-definition and FM tuner as is available. It's great looking, has both a 12-volt trigger and RS232 control, will accept up to three Sirius tuners, and all for under $900. I expect this product will do especially well for my retail sales staff.

I Would Change: For standalone systems I would not change much. On the custom side, I might wish the Sirius tuners were not separate units. You have to buy separate tuners from Sirius for about $50 each. Then, without an active splitter, you could wind up with three antennas. More importantly, the Crestron feedback is not great. As is often the case when working with products that are not designed specifically for distributed systems, there isn't sufficient graphical feedback information.
