Home Theatre Review - Rotel RC-1590 and RB-1590



"The Rotel RC-1590 preamplifier and RB-1590 amplifier are an impressive duo. The more time I spent with them, the more I grew to love them. The RC-1590 has a comprehensive set of modern inputs, supporting digital sources of both the wired and wireless variety. I could easily grab my MacBook Pro, log into Tidal, and instantly enjoy an incredible array of music. Streaming from my iPhone via Bluetooth was flashy and fun to demonstrate to friends. It's like having a Jukebox in your hand. All of this input flexibility and convenience, combined with the duo's excellent performance, comes with a price tag that's tough to beat. I learned quite a bit about Rotel during this review, and all I can say is that the company has made a fan out of me."

Technofile.com – Rotel RSP-1582 and RMB-1585

"One of the first things I noticed in my listening tests was not just the beautifully clean and lifelike sound emanating from the Rotel, but also its incredible sound stage and channel separation. When I fired up the 5.1 DVD-Audio mix of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's "Brain Salad Surgery," which throws stuff from speaker to speaker all around the room, it was almost as if it were the first time I'd heard that version - instead of perhaps the 100th."

"The stereo soundstage is so broad and deep, and with such pinpoint placement of instruments, that when I played a stereo SACD of an album I haven't listened to in a looong time the music filled the room so beautifully that, at various times during the album, I found myself getting up to check and see whether the surround and/or centre speakers were on, since the processor can convert two channel stereo to various surround modes and I thought I might have activated one by mistake."

S&I conclusion – An undisputed badge-winner in our books, Rotel promises a great deal for the money and delivers... Coupling the two components together creates the best current Rotel-powered setup one can get - it's an awesome package.
