RAP-1580 is the ideal home theater solution for those who don’t have space for separate components, yet still desire uncompromising performance. It is an ultra-high-performance multichannel-integrated amplifier with surround processing that brings music and movies to life in a startlingly vivid way. Sporting the latest HDMI 2.0a hardware, DTS:X and Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 processing, its amplifier section is built upon a powerful class AB design with 7 x 100 watts per channel, all channels driven into 8 ohms, and anchored by a massive Rotel-made toroidal transformer.
The RAP-1580 utilizes high performance Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz Digital-to-Analog Converters for all channels. These low noise, audiophile quality DACs are supported with premium-grade audio parts in circuits tuned by Rotel’s acoustic engineering team in the U.K.
Inputs include 8 x HDMI video inputs with 2 x HDMI video outputs all supporting 4K video with 3 of these inputs and both outputs enabled with HDCP 2.2. There is a seven-inch TFT display on the front panel to provide easy adjustments to all audio and video parameters without the need to turn on the television or video projection system. This makes it ideal for set-ups when the equipment rack is located separately from the video display. A full suite of custom integration features is on-board.
Other features include a front panel HDMI input with 4K video pass-through, front panel iPod USB input with 2.1A charging and integrated aptX enabled Bluetooth technology for higher fidelity. The RAP-1580 also includes a PC-USB input supporting 24-bit/192kHz audio, a quality MM phono stage input, CD input, XLR balanced input, Tuner input, AUX analog input and multichannel input.
Rotel's RAP-1580 is simple to operate, powerful, flexible and refined. It is a state-of-the-art single chassis audio/video component that outperforms most separates. In stereo or surround sound, this is a serious audio component.
