I strongly agree with greg on this point. Pre/pro's drop in value as each new step in technology arrives, spending more money on one that doesn't do HDMI switching, much less the new audio codecs is just throwing good money after bad. Buy the Integra and sell your Rotel for whatever you can get for it, and be current until the dust settles. Then down the line when you do upgrade players, you're ready for it and won't have to (then) upgrade the pre/pro as well!!!
