The Lexicon RT-10 Disc Player is a reference-quality universal disc transport designed to play virtually any of the 5" optical media discs available today. It supports CD (including CD-R, CD-RW, Video CD, S-VCD, and MP-3), DVD (including DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-R, and DVD-RW), and SACD (stereo and multi-channel). Combining leading-edge audio and video technology, impressive analogue circuitry, and an ample array of rear panel connectors, the RT-10 is at home in the finest music and cinema playback systems.
Designed to match the industrial design of Lexicon's award-winning home theatre products, the RT-10 is the obvious choice when contemplating a source component. The front panel is crafted from a 1/2" thick piece of solid aluminium, which is carefully machined and finished to create the unique look that distinguishes Lexicon's new home theatre line. The uncluttered front panel provides basic controls and a blue LED display. A single piece of aluminium covers the top, then wraps around the sides to the bottom and is coupled to the chassis with flush mounted machine screws. All of this results in a clean appearance that elegantly combines form and function. For systems utilizing an equipment rack, an optional rack mounting kit is available.
Video performance of the RT-10 befits a reference quality product. The RT-10 features pure cinema, progressive scan component video output, 12-bit/108MHz digital-to-analogue converters, and professional grade BNC-style component video output connectors. Pure cinema automatically converts the frame rate of film sources, which are recorded at 24 frames per second, to 60 frames per second for better picture quality. Progressive scan component video output converts interlaced video signals into progressive video signals, which doubles the amount of video information being sent to a compatible display device. The result is a more stable, flicker-free image with fewer video artefacts. And the video digital-to-analogue converters ensure that the pristine digital video image does not degrade during the conversion to analogue. Comprehensive video adjustments and memory locations complement superior video performance, allowing the RT-10 to be fine-tuned for any type of display device. In addition, the RT-10 features a component video output with RCA connectors for compatibility with products that do not accept BNC connectors, two composite video outputs, and an S-video output. With virtually any display device, the RT-10 is capable of stunning video performance.
The RT-10 features three S/PDIF digital audio outputs. One AES/EBU, one coaxial, and one optical connector allow for external decoding and processing of Dolby Digital®, dts®, and PCM sources. The RT-10 also has built-in 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analogue converters for all six analogue output channels to allow high-bandwidth formats, such as DVD-A and SACD, to be enjoyed in full resolution without any reduction in the sampling rate or digital word length. The result is pristine, high quality audio from any disc.
For optimal performance, the RT-10 is equipped with an extensive array of controls and adjustments. To make setup easier, the RT-10 includes an intuitive, graphical user interface with colour on-screen display providing convenient access to menus. Set up is further simplified with an on-screen setup navigator that provides step-by-step guidance through the entire process. When the setup navigator is activated, a series of questions appear on the screen. Just provide the answers and the RT-10 configures itself automatically to output the correct audio signals, video signals, and language settings. For more in-depth configuration, the menu can be set to the expert mode, which provides access to all of the RT-10 features and options. The RT-10 will also allow you to designate frequently used features into a favourite memory location that allows access without having to enter the menu.
At the touch of a button, the video outputs can be turned off, eliminating any possible interference to provide the cleanest possible audio signals. The back panel of the RT-10 has a trigger input, allowing it to be powered on and off by an MC-12 or MC-8 digital controller. The back panel also features an IR input, so the RT-10 can be easily integrated into an IR-based control system without an IR repeater attached to the front panel.
With the ability to play virtually any type of 5" optical disc, the RT-10 represents a solid investment. Whether watching the latest blockbuster on DVD or enjoying a SACD re-mix of an old favourite - the RT-10 is sure to please. Even the most demanding enthusiast will be impressed with its unbeatable combination of performance, flexibility, technological sophistication, and ease of use.
