Rotel to Introduce its New RA-1592 Integrated Amplifier
Rotel Electronics is introducing its new RA-1592 stereo integrated amplifier. The RA-1592 is built on the Rotel RC-1590 preamplifier and RB-1582mk2 power amplifier in a single chassis design.
According to Rotel, the power supply section is the “heart” of the amplifier. It has a Class AB design with 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and features a rugged power supply with a toroidal transformer, coupled to select T-network, slit-foil capacitors. According to Rotel, this creates a power supply that won’t sag and distort under complex speaker loads or dynamic signal transients.
The preamplifier section incorporates a 32bit 768KHz AKM digital-to-analog converter. The DAC and surrounding circuitry supports a vast array of source inputs including DSD capable PC-USB (24bit/192k), 3 coaxial, 3 optical, integrated aptX Bluetooth and a front mounted USB iPod input. For analog music lovers, there is a phono stage input (MM), XLR balanced input and 3 analog RCA source inputs.
User selectable A-B speaker outputs with 5-way binding posts, RCA pre-output and dual subwoofer outputs provide the ultimate flexibility in installation. The amplifier protection circuits monitor DC offset, overcurrent, short circuit and temperature to protect both the electronics and attached speakers.
Custom integration features include RS232 and Ethernet IP control, 2 trigger outputs, remote IR input and automated digital signal sense power control for easy integration with streaming sources and control systems.
The RA-1592 Integrated Amplifier will be available April 2016 with an MSRP of $2499.00.
