Rotel RAP1580 Processor

The Rotel RAP1580 Processor is the ideal space saving solution for those without the means to store multiple separate components, providing all you could possibly need in a home theatre system without ever compromising on performance. This processor is an ultra-high-performance multichannel-integrated amplifier with surround processing that will bring to your music and movies a level or starkness and vividness that would otherwise not have been achieved. With the latest HDMI 2.0a support, DTS:X and Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 processing, this processor's amplifier section has been built upon a powerful class AB design with 7 x 100 watts per channel, all of which are driven into 8 ohms and anchored by a massive Rotel- made toroidal transformer.

Digital-to-Analogue Converter

The Rotel RAP1580 Processor will utilise high performance Wolfson WM8740 digital-to-analogue converters for all channels. The end result of extensive research and real-world testing, this DAC was originally designed for use with high resolution sources. The WM8740 DAC will process digital signals up to 24-bits in length at sampling rates from 8 kHz to 192 kHz. These low noise, audiophile quality DACs are supported by premium-grade audio parts in circuits that have been tuned by Rotel's acoustic engineering team right here in the United Kingdom.

Inputs and Outputs

This processor provides 8 x HDMI video inputs with 2 x HDMI video outputs, all of which support 4K video. Three of the eight inputs and both of the outputs are enabled with HDCP 2.2. The seven inch TFT display that can be found on the front facia of the RAP1580 provides easy adjustments to all of the audio and video parameters without the need to turn your TV or video projector on, making this processor ideal for setups where the equipment rack is separate from the video display.

On the front panel of the RAP1580 Processor can be found an HDMI input with 4K video pass-through, front panel iPod USB input with 2.1A charging, and integrated aptX Bluetooth technology, delivering higher fidelity. This processor also includes a PC-USB input that supports 24-bit/192kHz audio, a high quality MM phono stage input, CD input, XLR balanced input, tuner input, AUX analogue input and multichannel input.

Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos technology is based on audio objects rather than – more conventionally – channels. This means that filmmakers are able to decide where the sounds should originate from and where in the room they should move to as the scene progresses. In order to deliver the full object-based soundtrack to your home theatre, Dolby has developed new home authorising tools and new encoding methods that will allow all the audio objects created for use within a cinema to be used within the comfort of your own home.


The next generation in audio codec from DTS, DTS:X leverages object-based audio to enable immersive and interactive audio experiences. This technology is able to automatically adapt to the existing channels and speaker systems already in your home theatre setup, meaning no specific speaker layout is required. DTS:X will allow you to experience an immersive soundscape with incredibly rich and life-like audio.
