Product Spotlight: The Rotel RA-1592 Integrated Amplifier
High-End Audio Performance That Won’t Break the Bank
Rotel has always been a company that has flown a bit under the radar. Audio enthusiasts worldwide know of its excellent products, yet many others who delve in audio sometimes overlook this hi-fi company.
The name Rotel would not give away that this is a Japanese company, still family-run. The company got its origins in 1961 and has since acquired a reputation as a high-quality audio electronics maker with classic design and robust build quality. For many years, it was part of the Bowers & Wilkins group and was sold almost exclusively by B&W dealers like GHT Group. Today the company is independent again, not straying far from its mission to build beautiful, long-lasting AV electronic components.
One of those components is the RA-1592 integrated amplifier. Integrated amps are an excellent way to get into high-end audio for your Marietta, GA listening room without complexity but sacrificing nothing in performance. If you love music, the Rotel 1592 makes the perfect complement to drive hi-fi speakers available from GHT Group such as MartinLogan, B&W, Paradigm, Monitor Audio, and Klipsch Heritage.
Keep reading to see why the Rotel 1592 makes an excellent centerpiece for your two-channel audio setup.
The amplifier section always draws attention, as enthusiasts want the power to drive their speakers to their highest level of performance. The RA-1592 has power to spare, with 200 watts per channel into 8-Ohm loads at less than .003% harmonic distortion. Rotel designs and manufactures its own toroidal transformers for its amplifiers, ensuring high current reserves for the amp section. The amplifier in the RA-1592 comes from the award-winning RB-1582 MKII and features a dual mono-block Class AB design. It is carefully integrated into a single-chassis solution for this compact but powerful component.
Analog Preamp with Digital Convenience
The preamplifier on the RA-1592 sports the design and key components of the excellent RC-1590 preamplifier. As any good preamp should, it introduces no coloration and feeds a pristine audio signal from source to amplifier. Separate analog and digital circuits reduce distortion to virtually unmeasurable levels.
The preamp section features all the digital and analog inputs and outputs to enjoy all your music sources at the highest quality. There is a DSD-capable USB input for audio from a PC or streamer, three coaxial, three optical, XLR analog input, and three analog unbalanced RCA inputs. For the vinyl lover, a quality moving magnet/moving coil phono input covers your turntable. A high-quality 32-bit/768kHz AKM DAC handles digital to analog conversion, and further digital convenience comes through a front-mounted USB iPod/iPhone input and Bluetooth aptX support for lossless wireless streaming.
The Heart of Your Two-Channel System
The RA-1592 can easily be the heart of a powerful two-channel system that can drive all but the most power-hungry speakers. If you want more bass, dual-mono subwoofer outputs give you the option. Custom integration features like IP control, trigger inputs and outputs, and IR input make it easy to integrate into your home control system if you so choose. With its multiple digital inputs, it's also easy to have a high-quality two-channel home theater setup by feeding your TV's optical output into the RA-1592. This versatile integrated amp can do it all and is designed with just the right features and inputs that will make it the foundation of your stereo setup for many years.
