It's all about control.

The RC-1590 stereo preamplifier has been engineered to the highest audio performance levels, and provides and incredible level of control and flexibility for the use. Starting with a high performance power supply consisting of two Rotel custom built toroidal transformers for maximum efficiency and low magnetic fields, these transformers provide low-noise isolation between the analogue and digital regulator circuits with custom-made slit-foil capacitors. These have very quick charge/discharge times and low signal loss ensuring tight bass performance.

Rotel engineers wanted to create a reference-quality stereo preamplifier to match with our new RB-1590 stereo power amplifier. Every aspect of component selection and circuit topography was designed and carefully evaluated during multiple listening sessions to ensure the highest fidelity. For example, analogue and digital circuits were designed separately, by specialised Rotel teams. Analogue inputs are all very low noise circuitry and include a high performance moving magnet phono stage. Digital inputs are fully isolated and feature a precision 32-bit 768kHz Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC).

The RC-1590 is fully feature.laden with Balanced XLR and Unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs, a TI precision volume control IC, a fixed volume line output, dual mono subwoofer outputs, digital outputs (Coax and Optical), digital inputs (3 Coax and 3 Optical), Aux, CD, and Tuner analogue inputs, Internal APTX Bluetooth with rear-mounted external antenna, a front USB iPod port with 2.1A charging supply, and rear panel PC-USB 24-bit 192kHz input supporting DSD (Windows) and DoP (DSD over PCM for Mac OS X).

Other essential features include a remote control, 2 x 12-volt trigger outputs, a dimmable display, an automatic power off function (configurable), RS232 and IP control for automation system integration, Internet based software updates, Rotel Link connection, a detachable IEC power cord, an external IR remote input, and a front mounted 3.5mm headphone output jack.

For music enthusiasts who won't accept compromise, the RC-1590 preamplifier is in a class of its own, at a price that belies its incredible performance.

If the power amplifier is the heart of the system, the pre-amplifier is the brains. Separate components are vital if you seek true high fidelity, and the right pre-amplifier can make all the difference.

In line with the facets of Rotel's Balanced Design Concept, Rotel pre-amps are products of detailed in-house engineering, high quality components and symmetrical circuitry to provide you with the best sound quality and greatest control.

Matching Rotel pre-amplifiers with one of their power amps is the trick to getting your hi-fi system to exhibit the crucial final details and deliver a thrilling performance.

ROTEL RB1590 POWER AMPLIFIER DESCRIPTION

Power - refined, detailed, and plenty of it. Rotel's new Class AB stereo power amplifier is rated at 350 Watts per channel into 8 ohms, both channels driven. That is a lot of power, but larger listening rooms or less sensitive loudspeaker designs require it to bring out the best possible performance and attain realistic audio dynamics.

The impressive capabilities of this amplifier begin with a solid foundation consisting of twin, massive toroidal transformers custom-made by Rotel. These transformers are just part of a rock-solid power supply that includes eight special British made BHC capacitors, known for their low loss and quick response times. These components will continue to supply all of the voltage and current requirements needed, even under the most difficult load conditions.

But power unrefined has never been a Rotel design goal. Every aspect of circuit design has been carefully considered and each component has been rigorously selected after extensive listening sessions. The circuit topography has been laid out in a true monoblock design ensuring maximum signal separation and improved stereo imaging.

Features include: XLR balanced and RCA input connections, two pairs of 5-way speaker binding posts, 12-volt trigger control, thermal protection circuitry, dual staged power-on relay to reduce surge current and extend longevity, and a detachable IEC power cord all in a 5U chassis with rack ears included.
