How to get started building your Stereo or Home Theater system
Rotel has been pushing on the boundaries of affordable high-end performance with the introduction of two new products, the RSP-1582 home theater processor at $3499 and the RA-1592 integrated amplifier at $2499.
The RSP-1582 has been two years in the making and is a wholly-new platform. Every circuit design and feature requirement has been painstakingly evaluated. It is built with a modular construction to facilitate upgrades of key internal circuit boards, and is software updateable over the internet or via a simple USB download if a network connection is not available. The RSP-1582 is a home theater preamplifier/processor, of course, but first and foremost, it truly shines as an audio component. For example, six Wolfson 24bit/192kHz devices are arrayed as four independent DACs for Front Left, Front Right, Center and Subwoofer channels with shared stereo DACs for the rear channels. This topology offers exemplary performance all around, but provides the absolute best quality on the most critical channels. Further, the RSP-1582 features an analog bypass to obtain the cleanest path for analog inputs. In theater mode, a Texas Instruments Aureus DSP high-performance decoder is used with 10-channel PEQ (Parametric Equalization) and PCM1804 audio performance ADC (analog to digital converter). Balanced XLR and single-ended connections are offered, and the audio stages use premium components in all signal-critical applications.
For video, the preamp/processor has eight HDMI 4K video inputs (no scaling) with two HDMI 4K video outputs. It also employs a Silicon Image 2K/4K HDMI transceiver. There is a seven-inch TFT display on the front panel to provide easy adjustments to all audio and video parameters without the need to turn on an external display or video projection system. Other features include one front panel HDMI input with 4K video pass-through, built-in aptX Bluetooth technology, a USB input that supports 24bit/192kHz computer audio, phono, CD, Tuner, and four AUX analog inputs, a multi-channel input and a balanced XLR analog input.
The RA-1592 is Rotel's latest and best ever integrated amplifier. It is built upon the award-winning RC-1590 preamplifier and RB-1582 Mk II power amplifier but in a sleek single chassis design. It is a classic Class AB design with 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms. It features a rugged power supply with a massive toroidal transformer coupled to select T-network, slit-foil capacitors. The result is a power supply that won't sag and distort under complex loudspeaker loads or dynamic signal transients. The power supply section is the heart of an amplifier, and Rotel has not cut corners on its design. But the power amplifier section is only a part of the story. The high-performance preamplifier section incorporates the superb 32bit 768KHz AKM digital-to-analog converter and the highest quality analog stages. The DAC and surrounding circuitry support a generous array of source inputs including a DSD-capable USB (24bit/192k), three coaxial, three optical, an integrated aptX Bluetooth, and front-mounted USB iPod input, a phono stage input, a balanced XLR input, and 3 analog RCA source inputs.
Two sets of user-selectable loudspeaker outputs, an RCA preamplifier output, and dual subwoofer outputs provide excellent flexibility for your setup. The amplifier's protection circuits monitor possible faults such as DC offset, over current, short circuit and temperature to protect both the electronics and attached loudspeakers.
Thus, the RSP-1592 offers a remarkable combination of pure sonics and tremendous flexibility at a very fair price.
