ROTEL - RMB1585
The RMB-1585, Rotel’s new flagship theatre amplifier, provides both the massive power and sonic sophistication required by the finest home theatre systems. With five channels, each capable of producing 200 continuous watts each into 8 ohm loads (a full kilowatt of output power!), the RMB-1585 masters any A/V system regardless of speaker load or room size.
But it isn’t just pure output power that distinguishes the RMB-1585. It’s the ability to reproduce both the dynamics of a Hollywood blockbuster and the musical nuances of acoustic instruments that sets it apart. Where does this balance come from? It’s a direct result of Rotel’s celebrated Balanced Design Concept in which circuit topology and parts selection meld in the pursuit of sonic excellence.
Beneath the clean lines and user friendly fascia of the RC-1570 lies highly sophisticated engineering. Both analogue and digital sources have been given equal consideration as today’s listener often has several digital sources, and while it still accommodates vinyl, it’s a perfect upgrade for owners of older analogue-only preamplifiers.
Separate components hold the promise of the best possible fidelity, since each device is optimised for its role in the sound reproduction chain. Rotel has been designing and manufacturing high performance components for dedicated enthusiasts for over 50 years. Those decades of experience, along with precise and efficient in-house manufacturing, are fully evident in Rotel separates. As countless reviewers have testified over the years, they rival and frequently exceed the performance of much higher priced offerings. The new RC-1570 stereo preamplifier, a blend of cutting edge digital circuitry with on-board Digital-to-Analoguen conversation and classic analogue stages, is the latest example.
Beneath the clean lines and user friendly fascia of the RC-1570 lies highly sophisticated engineering. Both analogue and digital sources have been given equal consideration as today’s listener often has several digital sources, but may also enjoy legacy formats like vinyl LPs. A large toroidal transformer and regulated power supply ensures stable current and voltage requirements to all stages under dynamic conditions. Premium circuit components have been selected only after extensive listening evaluations. Careful routing of all low level signals has been practiced to ensure impressive signal to noise levels. The result is effortless musical dynamics, impressive detail and scale.
The RC-1570 stereo preamplifier is also extremely flexible. Four digital inputs (2 co-ax and 2 optical), plus the rear PC-USB handle digital sources up to 24/192 resolution. The 4 inputs are designed for sources such as TV set-top boxes, flat panel TVs or Blu-ray players for stunning playback. The PC-USB input makes use of audio playback software such as iTunes or Windows Media Player to replay music from your computer digital library. A Bluetooth dongle is provided to be used with the front USB input. A premium Wolfson stereo D/A converter handles critical conversion from digital data to analogue. analogue inputs include balanced XLR connectors (perfect for connecting the RCD-1570 via its XLR outputs) in addition to four pair of conventional RCA inputs. A moving magnet phono stage rounds out the source capability. XLR and single ended outputs are provided, as are two 12-volt triggers to control on/off operation of an amplifier and/or other components and RS-232 on a standard DB-9 connector. In short, the RC-1570 is a tremendous value and the perfect upgrade for owners of older analogue-only preamplifiers.
The RSP-1572 is Rotel’s latest 7.1 surround sound preamplifi er. Its advanced design builds upon a progression of outstanding home theater processors that have received critical acclaim around the globe. The RSP-1572 features important new technologies such as HDMI 1.4 with 3 D capability. It offers six HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs with one HDMI output having ARC capability (Audio Return Channel). The ARC in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data “upstream” to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user fl exibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.
No longer do you need to purchase several large amplifiers to obtain a high performance multizone audio system. The RMB-1512 features an advanced Class D design that provides plenty of power (12 x 100 watts into 8 ohms) for the most demanding multizone audio systems, but never runs the danger of overheating itself or other electronic components placed in the same vicinity. The RMB-1512 features everything needed for remote operation and custom installation including 12 volt trigger signal sensing, input bussing, sum-to-mono, buffered link output, front panel attenuation control, five-way binding posts and screw terminals.
*Note – all Rotel 15 series components may be rack mounted and remotely controlled via RS-232, IR, or 12 volt (depending on model) for complete stealth operation.

FLAGSHIP UPSAMPLING DAC, CD PLAYER & PREAMPLIFIER
Our finest CD player and DAC, the 851C uses our extensive digital knowledge to become the cornerstone of your digital hub. No matter the source of your digital music, twin DACs in dual differential mode and 2nd generation Adaptive Time Filtering make the music sound as the original artist intended – extraordinary.
To make the 851C we used all our hi-fi know-how. So it has a toroidal transformer and audiophile components, and a signal path that’s been revised and tweaked for the cleanest route possible. It’s built to connect with as many sources as possible, with optical and co-axial digital in and outputs, XLR and RCA outputs, plus a USB audio input for your PC.
That the 851C is an exceptional CD player is beyond doubt. It has our high performance S3 Custom Servo for remarkable error-free data retrieval, while the twin DACs upsample data to 24-bit standard. But the 851C is also a pre-amp, so can be directly connected to a power amp or active speakers for further sonic benefits.
