There has never been a better time to be a music lover. Today’s
source options provide limitless audiophile quality music. CDor-better quality streaming, high resolution download sites,
inexpensive mass storage devices, the still resilient CD and the
resurgence of classic vinyl are all providing a wealth of content
at impressively high fidelity. To hear all this music as the artist
intended requires an extraordinarily flexible, sonically capable
The RA-1592 Integrated Amplifier is exactly that component.
It leverages the strengths of our award winning RC-1590
preamplifier and RB-1582 MkII power amplifier in a sleek single
chassis design. With a powerful 200 watt per channel Class AB
amplifier using performance audio grade components, the RA1592 can effortlessly drive large speaker systems. The impressive
Rotel manufactured toroidal transformer is a key element in the
power supply design which also includes custom slit-foil storage
capacitors and a dual-monoblock topology. All of this helps to
ensure the amplifier performance stands up to even the most
complex music and real world playback conditions.
AKM premium 32-bit/
768kHz Digital to Analog
Balanced XLR inputs
To complement the amplifier section, the RA-1592’s preamplifier
incorporates the superb 32 bit 768kHz AKM digital-to-analog
converter (DAC) and analog stages of the highest quality. The
DAC and surrounding circuitry supports a vast array of source
inputs including DSD capable PC-USB (24bit/192kHz), 3 coaxial,
3 optical, integrated aptX® Bluetooth and front mounted USB
iPod input. In recognition of the faithful analog music lovers,
there is a phono stage input (MM), XLR balanced input and 3
analog RCA source inputs.
User selectable A-B speaker outputs with 5-way binding
posts, RCA pre-output and dual subwoofer outputs provide
the ultimate flexibility in installation. The amplifier protection
circuits monitor DC offset, overcurrent, short circuit and
temperature to protect both the electronics and attached
Custom integration features include RS232 and Ethernet IP
control, 2 trigger outputs, remote IR input and automated digital
signal sense power control for easy integration with streaming
sources and control systems.
The RA-1592 is the finest integrated amplifier yet in Rotel’s 55
year history of producing performance audio components.
