    Rotel introduces the RA-1592 Integrated Amplifier

    The perfect combination of engineering, power, and performance

    North Reading, MA—May 2016—Rotel Electronics, widely acknowledged for 50 years as a leader in affordable high-end electronics designed for serious audiophiles and home-theater fans, has introduced the RA-1592 stereo integrated amplifier built upon the award-winning Rotel RC-1590 preamplifier and RB-1582mk2 power amplifier in a sleek, single chassis design.

    While home theater is still in high demand for consumers, music is an integral part of our lives and Rotel believes that listening to music should be more than a secondary pastime. The new RA-1592 stereo integrated amplifier provides an optimal solution for hearing a musical performance the way the artist intended, whether its from modern digital sources or classic analog vinyl recordings.

    The power supply section is the heart of an amplifier and Rotel has not cut corners on its design.

    The RA-1592 It’s is a classic Class AB design with 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 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 speaker loads or dynamic signal transients.

    But the power amplifier section is only a part of the story.
    The high performance preamplifier section incorporates a superb 32bit 768KHz AKM digital-to-analog converter and analog stages of the highest quality. 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 is truly a contemporary audio component with all of the features, power, and reference music capability you have come to expect from Rotel.

    Seems like a good value IF it sounds good, but if its like a typical HT RCVR as far as sound quality goes, no bargain.

      I agree JC. I have read glowing reviews of Rotel electronics for years and once heard I have found them to be good mid-fi only.
