Your dealer should have offered to come out and set it up for you. It wouldn't hurt to ask.

That's what I was talking about. Not just the connections, but actually getting the whole system dialed in. Rotel is picky about stuff like that. A dealer is expected to give you that type of service. In fact, most of the dealers I know will deliver the product to your house and set it up. That's one of the main reasons to use a B&M store. Take advantage of it.
For some reason, my dealer gives great deals but short on those types of services. It's a chore just to get it delivered. I get the old excuse I will see what I can do but no promises, you may have to come and pick it up. I traded in two Rotel power amps and we swapped out the items no problem before. If it's one piece of equipment it doesn't make dollars and sense I guess and they would have to have a few items to drop off in the area. I still use them but I'm not sure they offer that type of service. Never asked them either.
