Rotel RC-1572 MKII Stereo Preamplifier

Affordable high-end begins with Rotel’s RC-1572MKII preamplifier including multiple acoustic upgrades and refinements processing your favourite analogue and digital sources to an even higher level of performance in stunning clarity with a natural, enveloping sound stage.

Manufacturer Details:

As an essential component in a Hi-Fi audio stack the RC-1572MKII’s precision engineering begins with Rotel’s ultra-low noise power supply including a large, in-house manufactured toroidal transformer. The transformer design reduces stray radiated emissions and feeds a bank of slit-foil, low ESR capacitors delivering stable current to all sensitive circuits reducing noise and distortion with an ultra-quiet noise floor.

A premium Texas Instruments 32-bit Digital to Analog converter (DAC) renders the digital sources supported by custom tuned, proprietary external output filters ensuring the audio is effortlessly presented with exceptional dynamic detail and musical expression.

Engineered With Care:

Analogue, Digital, XLR, aptXTM and AAC Wireless Bluetooth and Moving Magnet Phono Stage inputs ensure connection to your favourite music sources. Digital media files are supported via a 32-bit/384kHz PC-USB connection supporting MQA and is fully certified Roon Tested for graceful access to the near limitless catalog of online music.

The RC-1572 MKII is easy to operate using the included remote control and front panel display. Automatic power controls, signal sensing, fixed volume settings and tone adjustments optimise customisation settings.

RCA, XLR and subwoofer outputs are provided for installation flexibility. Ethernet and RS232 ensure simple integration with control systems and software updates.
