no problem intercepting, it's all good sharing. 1065 is rated 100 ROTEL watts at 8 ohms, or it's about 150 watts/ch. at 4 ohms, all channels driven (which LSi demands to run them adequately) I've been very impressed with the Rotel, especially in conjunction with LSi. I don't believe Integra is certified to drive 4 ohms load, that might be part of the reasons, and Rotel has a much more finesse and warmth compared to Integra (just IMO).I run the LSi15, C, Fx, and 7 on one (along with REL Storm III sub), and 9 on my 2 channels. I really like LSi, such a brutally honest speakers! I never run into any issue with the Rotel (on multi channels SACD running at reference level, it gets a bit hotter, but then it could also because of being inside a cabinet.) All in all, I am very happy with the 1065, glad that I went with it rather than the 1055. It has a lot more oomph. The buttons duplicate about 90% of the remote, you can download the manual from Rotel website, I don't find them to be intrusive, and I found them to be useful if I happened to sit in front of the cabinet, tweaking the gears. And the two lines display also very nice, better than the 1055. I have not clipped the Rotel, since it gets very loud, beyond reference level, and it gets there with ease...no distortion whatsoever. If I were you, I would consider the separate routes (rsp 1066 and rmb 1075) or the 1065. Either one of these options will make your LSi sing! Personally, I am not a proponent of mixing Integra with Rotel, since I found Integra sonic signature to be a bit harsh on the high octaves, and the LSi WILL expose those quality as is. BTW, on multi channels source, the Rotel and LSi are very nice and sweet...hope my rantings help..
