Rotel RSP-1582


The RSP-1582 is a home theatre preamplifier/processor, of course, but first and foremost, it truly shines as an audio component. For example, six Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz devices are arrayed as four independent DACs for Front Left, Front Right, Center and Subwoofer channels with shared stereo DAC’s for the rear channels. This topology offers exemplary performance all around, but provides the absolute best quality on the most critical channels. In theatre mode, a Texas Instruments Aureus DSP high-performance decoder is utilized with 10-channel Parametric Equalization. A high performance Texas Instruments Analogue-to-Digital convertor is used to facilitate optimum conversion of analogue signals for playback in surround sound modes. Balanced XLR and single ended connections are offered, and the audio stages use premium components in all signal critical applications. For pure stereo playback of analogue sources, the RSP-1582 features an analogue bypass to obtain the cleanest path.

For video use, the preamp/processor incorporates eight HDMI 2.0 video inputs all supporting 4K video resolution, three with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. Dual HDMI outputs both support HDMI2.0. The modular approach of the video board supports future updates if necessary.

In addition to its unassailable audio and video performance, custom installers will find the RSP-1582 ideal for any installation application with RJ45 network connection, Internet or USB front panel software updates, three source independent trigger outputs, a wired IR remote input, RS232 and IP interface for automation system control, 2 x IR output connectors for IR pass-through and front panel setup navigation control.
