of enjoyment.
Getting Started
Thank you for purchasing the Rotel RC-1090
Stereo Control Amplifier. When used in a highquality music audio system, it will provide years
of musical enjoyment.
The RC-1090 is a full featured, high performance preamplifier. All aspects of the design
have been optimized to retain the full dynamic
range and subtle nuances of your music. The
RC-1090 has a highly regulated power supply incorporating a Rotel custom-designed toroidal power transformer and custom-made
slit foil capacitors. This low impedance power
supply has ample power reserves, which enables the RC-1090 to easily reproduce the most
demanding audio signals. This type of design
is more expensive to manufacture, but it is
better for the music.
RC-1090 Stereo Control Amplifier
The RC-1090 has both XLR (balanced) and
RCA cable main output and CD input connections. The printed circuit boards (PCB) are designed with Symmetrical Circuit Traces. This
insures that the precise timing of the music is
maintained and faithfully recreated. The
RC-1090 circuitry uses metal film resistors and
polystyrene or polypropylene capacitors in important signal paths. All aspects of this design have been examined with the final goal
being faithful reproduction of music.
The RC-1090 has a superb phono preamp
stage, derived from Rotel’s finest phono preamplifier, the RHQ 10. The preamp stage can
be used with either a moving magnet (MM)
or a moving coil (MC) phono cartridge. This
shows our commitment to phono sound quality
and our interest in the recreation of fine music.
The RC-1090 is straightforward in its installation and operation. If you have experience
with other stereo systems, you shouldn’t find
anything perplexing. Simply plug in the associated components and enjoy.
A Few Precautions
Please read this manual carefully. It provides
complete information on how to incorporate
the RC-1090 into your system as well as general information that will help you get optimum sound performance. Please contact your
authorized Rotel dealer for answers to any
questions you might have. In addition, all of
us at Rotel welcome your questions and comments.
Save the RC-1090 shipping carton and all enclosed packing material for future use. Shipping or moving the RC-1090 in anything other
than the original packing material may result in severe damage to your amplifier.
Fill out and send in the owner’s registration
card packed with the RC-1090. Also be sure
to keep the original sales receipt. It is your
best record of the date of purchase, which you
will need in the event warranty service is ever
required.

Placement
Using the RR-969
Like all audio components that handle lowlevel signals, the RC-1090 can be affected by
its environment. Do not stack the RC-1090 on
top of a power amplifier. This will minimize
chance it will pick up hum or interference. We
recommend installing the RC-1090 in furniture designed to house audio components.
Such furniture is designed to reduce or suppress vibration which can adversely affect
sound quality. Ask your authorized Rotel dealer
for advice about component furniture and
proper installation of audio components.
To operate the RC-1090 with the remote,
activate the AUDIO mode, if necessary, by
. The AUDIO
pressing the AUD button
mode will remaine selected until another
DEVICE button is pressed.
Cables
Be sure to keep the power cords, digital signal cables and regular audio signal cables
in your installation away from each other. This
will minimize the chance of the regular audio signal cables picking up noise or interference from the power cords or digital cables.
Using only high quality, shielded cables will
also help to prevent noise or interference from
degrading the sound quality of your system.
If you have any questions see your authorized
Rotel dealer for advice about the best cable
to use with your system
RR-969 Remote Control
The RC-1090 includes a full-function learning remote control that can operate up to nine
other components, in addition to the RC-1090.
A separate manual, included with the remote,
gives detailed instrctions on programming and
using the RR-969 to replace all of the remote
controls in your system. To avoid duplication,
we provide only basic information about using the RR-969 to operate the RC-1090.
Most of the RR-969 functions duplicate the front
panel controls. In this manual the remote control functions are covered in the same section
as the front panel control operation. Numbers
indicate items on
in gray boxes such as
the front and rear panel control and connection illustrations. See Figure 1 on page 3. Letters
indicate items on
in gray boxes such as
the RR-969 illustration. See Figure 2 on page
3.
Controlling Other
Components
To control other components with the RR-969,
press the appropriate Device Selection button. See the RR-969 manual for more information.
Programming the RR-969
The RR-969 is pre-programmed to operate the
RC-1090. Should the AUDIO mode of the
RR-969 not operate the RC-1090, the programming may have been changed. To restore the original programming, press the
on the remote with
recessed Preload button
the tip of a ball point pen.
NOTE: Pushing the PRELOAD button will
erase all custom programming
and learned commands, restoring the
RR-969 to its factory settings.
AC Power and Control
AC Power Input
Connect the supplied power cord to the AC
Input receptacle on the rear panel. Do not
connect the power cord to the power outlet
until all the audio input and output connections have been made.
It is usually best to plug the RC-1090 directly
into a 2-pin polarized wall outlet. Avoid the
use of extension cords. A heavy duty multitap power outlet strip may be used if it (and
the wall outlet) is rated to handle the current
demanded by the components connected to
it.
Your RC-1090 is configured at the factory for
the proper AC line voltage in the country where
you purchased it (either 115 volts AC or 230
volts AC with a line frequency of either 50
Hz or 60 Hz). The AC line configuration is
noted on a decal on the left side.
English

NOTE: Should you move your RC-1090
amplifier to another country, it is possible
to reconfigure your amplifier for use on a
different line voltage. Do not attempt to
perform this conversion yourself. Opening
the enclosure of the RC-1090 exposes you
to dangerous voltages. Consult a qualified
service person or the Rotel factory service
department for information.
If you are going to be away from home for
an extended period of time such as a monthlong vacation, it is a sensible precaution to
unplug your amplifier (as well as other audio and video components) while you are
away.

NOTE: The RC-1090 will be turned on
and in the normal operating mode as soon
as it is connected to the AC outlet. Be sure
to set the Volume control to the minimum
(full counterclockwise) position before connecting the power cord.
Auxiliary Power Outputs
(North American version only.)
Some high output moving coil cartridges are
designed to operate in the moving magnet position. If you are in doubt about the correct
setting, check the instruction manual for your
phono cartridge for information regarding its
output voltage and the expected input impedance. The Phono input has 47 kOhms input
impedance and 2.5 mV sensitivity in the MM
position and 100 Ohms input impedance and
0.25 mV sensitivity in the MC position. If you
still have questions about the proper setting
of the phono input selector switch, consult your
authorized Rotel dealer.
The RC-1090 has two switched outlets on
the back panel. Power is available from these
outlets when the RC-1090 is turned on.
Power to these outlets is turned off when the
RC-1090 is in Standby mode. These outlets
can provide up to a total of 400 watts. They
are appropriate for supplying power to signal sources, such as CD players, tuners, or
tape decks. They should not be used for
power amplifiers. Connecting components
that will draw more than 400 watts to these
outputs could damage the Standby switch
in the RC-1090.
Phono Input
and
Ground
Connection
NOTE: Do not connect the power cord for
a power amplifier to the auxiliary power
outlets on the RC-1090. Power amplifiers
often draw more power than these outlets
can provide.
Plug the cable from the turntable into the
appropriate left and right phono inputs. If the
turntable has a “ground” wire connect it to
the screw terminal to the left of the Phono inputs. It will help prevent hum and noise.
Line Level Inputs
Input Signal Connections
and
[See Figure 3.]
The RC-1090 has conventional RCA-type connectors for all inputs. In addition their is a set
of balanced XLR type inputs for the CD input
for use with high performance CD players that
have balanced outputs.
NOTE: To prevent loud noises that neither
you nor your speakers will appreciate,
make sure the system is turned off when
you make any signal connections.
Phono Input Selector Switch
The Phono input is for a moving magnet (MM)
or moving coil (MC) phono cartridge only and
is incompatible with line level components. Set
the Phono Input Selector Switch as appropriate for the phono cartridge you are using.
Leave the switch button in the out position for
a moving magnet cartridge; push the switch
in for a moving coil cartridge.
The CD, Video, Tuner, and Aux inputs of the
RC-1090 are “line level” inputs. These are for
connecting components such as CD players,
Hi Fi or NICAM Stereo video cassette recorders, tuners for audio or video, Laser Disc players or the analog output from a CD ROM drive.
The Left and Right channels are clearly labeled
and should be connected to the corresponding channels of the source component. The
Left RCA connectors are white, the Right connectors are red. Use high quality RCA cables
for connecting input source components to the
RC-1090. Ask your authorized Rotel dealer
for advice about cables.
Balanced CD Selector
Switch
and Input
If your CD player has balanced XLR-type
outputs, connect them to the Balanced CD
. The Balanced CD Selector Switch
Inputs
must be set to “On”.
NOTE: Use only one set of the CD inputs
and set the Selector Switch as appropriate.
RC-1090 Stereo Control Amplifier
Recorder Connections
The Tape 1 and Tape 2 inputs and outputs can
be connected to any record/playback device
that accepts standard line level analog input
and output signals. Typically that will be a conventional tape recorder.
When connecting a recorder to the RC-1090,
remember that the outputs of the recorder must
be connected to the tape inputs of the RC-1090.
Similarly the tape outputs of the RC-1090 must
be connected to the inputs of the recorder. As
with other sources be sure to connect the Left
and Right channels of each device to the proper
channels on the associated components. Use
high quality connecting cables to prevent loss
of sound quality.
Output Connections
NOTE: The RC-1090 has both RCA and
XLR type output connectors. The two sets of
outputs must not be used at the same time.
Balanced Output Switch
When the RCA outputs are used the Balanced
Output switch must be set to the Off position.
Set the switch in the On position when using
the XLR Balanced outputs.
RCA Outputs
[See Figure 4 for RCA output connection illustration.]
Most power amplifiers have RCA-type input
connectors. With such amplifiers the Balanced
must be set to the Off
Outputs switch
position. Then connect a set of cables between
the outputs of the RC-1090 and the inputs
of the amplifier. As always, use high quality
cables and be sure to connect the Left and Right
channel outputs of the RC-1090 to the correct channels of the amplifier.
NOTE: There are two sets of RCA outputs
on the RC-1090. The second set of outputs
may be used in custom system configurations to drive a second power amplifier or
to supply a signal to a special signal processor.
10
Balanced XLR Outputs
[See Figure 5 for Balanced XLR output connection illustration.]
The XLR type outputs of the RC-1090 are “balanced” outputs. These provide the advantage
of allowing the power amplifier to be placed
a great distance from the RC-1090 without causing loss of sound quality or picking up noise
over the long cable run. Of course the associated power amplifier must have balanced XLRtype inputs in order to use this feature.
When using the XLR outputs the Balanced
must be set to the On poOutput switch
sition. Then simply connect a cable with XLR
connectors to the RC-1090 outputs and power
amplifier inputs. Be sure to connect the Left
and Right channel outputs of the RC-1090 to
the correct channels of the amplifier. If you
have questions about the proper type of cable
to use, consult your authorized Rotel dealer.
12 Volt Trigger Outlet
Some audio components can be turned on
automatically when they receive a 12V turn
on “signal”. The 12V Trigger Outputs of
RC-1090 provides the required signal. Connect the compatible components to the
RC-1090 with a conventional 1/8” miniplug
cable. When the RC-1090 is in Standby mode,
the trigger signal is interupted, so the components controlled by it are turned off.
IR Inputs and Outputs
External Remote Input
This 3.5 mm mini-jack (labeled EXT REM IN)
receives command codes from an industrystandard infrared receivers (Xantech, etc.)
located in the main listening room. This feature is useful when the unit is installed in a
cabinet and the front-panel sensor is blocked.
Consult your authorized Rotel dealer for information on external receivers and the proper
wiring of a jack to fit the mini-jack receptacle.
NOTE: The IR signals from the EXTERNAL
REMOTE IN jack can be relayed to source
components using external IR emitters or
hardwired connections from the IR OUT
jacks.
IR Output
The IR OUT 1 & 2 jacks send IR signals received at the EXTERNAL REM IN jack to an
infrared emitter placed in front of a source
component or to Rotel CD players, cassette
decks, or tuners with a compatible rear panel
IR connector.
This output is used to allow IR signals to pass
along IR signals from a remote control when
the sensors on the source components are
blocked by installation in a cabinet.
See your authorized Rotel dealer for information on IR repeater systems.
NOTE: The EXT REM IN jack located next
to the these jacks is for use with an external
IR sensor duplicating the front panel IR sensor and located in the primary zone.
Computer I/O Connector
The RC-1090 can be operated from a personal computer running audio system control
software from third-party developers. This control is accomplished by sending the operating codes normally sent by the RR-969 remote
control over a hard-wired network connection from the computer.
The COMPUTER I/O input provides the necessary connection on the back panel. It accepts standard RJ-45 8-pin modular plugs,
such as those commonly used in 10-BaseT UTP
Ethernet cabling.
For additional information on the connections,
software, and operating codes for computer
control of the RC-1090, contact your authorized Rotel dealer.

FL Display Control
Turning FL Display On/Off
The Remote Sensor is located to the right of
the Phones jack on the front panel. It picks
up the infra-red signals from the remote control.
Do not cover or block the sensor. It must be
clear of obstructions or the remote control will
not work properly. The operation of the Remote Sensor can also be affected if it is exposed to bright light, particularly sun light.
In addition remote control functions may not
work reliably if the batteries in the RR-969
are weak.

When the display is set to off, the Listening
Selector Display and Recording Selector Display will light for 5 seconds when a new source
is selected.
Customizing FL Display
You can program the RC-1090 to display
custom names, up to 5 characters long, in the
Listening and Recording Selection Displays.
For example, if the Aux 1 input was connected
to a Digital Satelite Dish, you could program
it to RC-1090 to display “DSS” when the Aux
1 input is selected.
Example:
1 Select Aux 1 as the listening input so AUX
1 appears in the display. Press and hold
button until the characters
the Display
in the display change to blinking solid
blocks.

2 Use the RR-969 t/u buttons
through the character set. (See page 3 of
the RR-969 manual for a listing of the character set.) When the character you want
to confirm it
is displayed, press Enter
and go to the next character.
3 Repeat the previous step to select the remaining characters. After the last character is selected and confirmed the new name
is saved automatically.
Once the Listening input display is customized, the new name also appears when that
input is selected as the Recording input. (The
exception is the Tape 2 input since it cannot
be selected as the recording source.)
When an input that has a customized name
is selected, the original input name is displayed
for 2 seconds, before the customized name
is displayed.

Clearing FL Display
Customization
Standby Power Indicator Is
Not Lit
To clear all customized displays, turn the
RC-1090 on. Then press the Listening Selector Phono button together with the Recording
Selector Off button. This will return all displays
to their original settings.
The Standby Power Indicator should be lit
whenever the RC-1090 is plugged into the wall
power outlet. If it does not light, test the power
outlet with another electrical device, such as
a lamp. Be sure the power outlet being used
is not controlled by a switch that has been
turned off.
Troubleshooting
Most difficulties in audio systems are the result of incorrect connections, or improper
control settings. If you encounter problems,
isolate the area of the difficulty, check the control settings, determine the cause of the fault
and make the necessary changes. If you are
unable to get sound from the RC-1090, refer
to the suggestions for the following conditions:
No Sound
Check the signal source to see if it is functioning
properly. Make sure the cables from the signal source to the RC-1090 inputs are connected
properly. Be sure the Listening Selector is set
to the proper input. Check the power amplifier for power and proper operation. Check
all the wiring between the RC-1090 and the
power amplifier, and the power amplifier and
speakers.
Fuse Replacement
If another electrical device works when plugged
into the power outlet, and the Standby Indicator still will not light when the RC-1090 is
plugged into the wall outlet, it indicates that
the internal power fuse may have blown. If
you believe this has happened, contact your
authorized Rotel dealer to get the fuse replaced.
