How to get started building your Stereo or Home Theater system

Vol. 18, No. 1 Spring/Summer, 2015



Rotel has introduced two new flagship products, the RC-1590 preamplifier at $1749 and the 350 watt per channel RB-1590 power amplifier at $2999.

This new flagship stereo pair can power the very best speakers, yet maintains a remarkably affordable price point. They are beautiful to look at, simple to use, and, most importantly, thrilling to listen to. The heart of any audio component is its power supply, and the RC-1590's is extraordinary. It starts with separate custom-built toroidal transformers for analog and digital circuits, and it maintains individual reference-grade analog and digital regulator circuits with custom-made slit-foil capacitors. (Slit-foil capacitors have very quick charge/discharge times and low signal loss, ensuring tight bass performance.) The result is rock solid and exceptionally quiet power delivery to all audio stages and for all sources. Beyond the power supply, every aspect of component selection and circuit topography was designed and carefully evaluated during extensive listening sessions to ensure the highest fidelity. Analog and digital circuits were designed separately by specialized Rotel teams and then evaluated together before finalization of the design. The RC-1590 includes an extensive array of both analog and digital inputs, to accommodate the needs of a modern music system. Analog inputs boast very low-noise circuitry and include a high-performance moving magnet phono stage. Digital inputs are fully isolated and feature a precision AKM, 34-bit/768KHz Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) that supports PCM and DSD decoding. That's right, DSD capability is built right into this preamplifier!

Rotel RC-1590 preamplifierThe RC-1590 offers extensive connectivity. A pair of balanced XLR inputs and two sets of XLR outputs (for biamping, if desired) along with single-ended RCA outputs and three sets of single-ended RCA inputs, a phono input, plus a pair of buffered subwoofer outputs comprise the analog connections. There are also numerous digital inputs that include three coax and three optical PCM, a front USB for iOS devices, and a rear-panel USB for computer connection that supports up to 24-bit/192kHz and DSD signals. There is also an internal AptX Bluetooth receiver for wireless streaming from any Bluetooth-capable device. There are even coax and optical digital outputs. So now you can connect any source you want and get the best possible sound while doing so.

Rotel RB-1590 power amplifierThe impressive capabilities of the RB-1590 begin with twin, massive toroidal transformers custom-made by Rotel. These transformers are just one part of a rock-solid power supply that includes 8 special British-made BHC capacitors, known for their low loss and quick response times. these characteristics improve high-energy signal transients and dynamic bass performance. These components will steadfastly supply all of the voltage and current requirements needed, even under the most difficult load conditions. But raw power alone has never been part of Rotel's Balanced Design philosophy. Every aspect of circuit design has been carefully considered, and each component has been rigorously selected after extensive listening sessions to ensure that power is combined with nuance, detail, and overall musical performance. Circuit topography has been laid out in a true monoblock design, ensuring maximum signal separation and better stereo imaging. Features include XLR and RCA input connections, two pairs of 5-way speaker binding posts, a 12-volt trigger control for remote turn on, thermal protection circuitry, over-current and over-voltage protection circuitry, and a dual-staged power-on relay to reduce surge current and extend longevity. The result is a hugely powerful amplifier that delivers its 700 watts with great finesse and which is so reliable that it will perform flawlessly for many, many years.
