Rotel RC1572 Pre Amplifier

Each component of a separate stereo system holds the promise of fidelity, as it is specially optimized for its role in the sound reproduction chain. Improving over-all performance, a separate preamplifier is an integral part of the separate stereo system. Leveraging the design of the RC-1590 preamplifier, the new RC-1572 preamplifier is highly sophisticated engineering with a premium 32-bit/768kHz digital to analogue converter to handle the critical signal conversion. To maintain the integrity of the signal path for RCA, phono, and XLR inputs, the new RC-1572 amplifier is switched from IC based switch to analogue sources, which is one among the many refinements of the RC-1572.

Since today’s listeners enjoy legacy formats like vinyl LPs and have several digital sources, equal importance is given to both digital and analogue sources. A large toroidal transformer has been equipped to regulate power supply and ensure stable current and voltage requirements under dynamic conditions. After extensive listening evaluations, premium circuit components have been selected. Additionally, in order to ensure impressive signal to noise levels, scrupulous routing of all low-level signals is practiced, which has resulted in impressive details and effortless musical dynamics.

Extremely flexible, the RC-1572 stereo preamplifier features 4 digital inputs including 2 coaxes and 2 optical, which are especially designed for sources such as flat panel TVs, TV set-top boxes, or Blu-ray. The RC-1572 also comes with rear PC-USB handling digital sources up to 32/384 resolution which also supports DSD signals. Additionally, it is also possible to set an auto-on option or fix the level with digital inputs for use with devices that provide convenient hands-off with their own volume control.

In addition to four pairs of conventional RCA inputs, integrated Bluetooth aptX and analogue inputs are also provided. Analogue inputs include balanced XLR connectors which are perfect for connecting the Rotel RCD-1572 via its XLR outputs.

To control the on/off operation of the amplifier and other components, two 12-volt triggers are provided along with XLR and single ended outputs and a mono subwoofer output. The control options like RS232 on a standard DB9 connector and Ethernet port for software updates and IP control are also provided for custom integration. Is short, it would not be wrong to say that the new Rotel RC-1572 is a perfect upgrade for people who own older analogue-only amplifiers.
