Reference audio systems deserve reference audio equipment. The Rotel RC-1590MKII is exactly that -- a reference preamplifier rendering analogue and digital sources with natural expression in a wide and open sound stage in stunning clarity.

Manufacturer Details:

The heart of the RC-1590MKII begins with the power supply featuring dual in-house manufactured toroidal transformers. The transformers are physically and electronically isolated supplying dedicated analog and digital supply voltages to all critical circuits through low ESR slit-foil capacitors eliminating unwanted distortion and an extremely low noise floor.

Digital source inputs are processed utilising an audiophile grade Texas Instruments 32-bit/384kHz Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) with custom engineered, proprietary acoustically tuned external output filter circuits rendering even the finest details with exceptional clarity and exact positing.

Engineered With Care:

Analogue signal paths feature DIRECT-PATH bypass modes eliminating unnecessary circuits maintaining signal integrity and further eliminating unwanted noise and distortion drawing you even closer and immersing you in the music. 

The RC-1590 MKII supports a full array of inputs ensuring connection to your favourite sources including a Moving Magnet Phono input for vinyl lovers, Analogue, Digital, XLR Balanced, high quality aptXTM and AAC wireless Bluetooth, and PC-USB (32-bit/384kHz) supporting MQA unfolding and rendering as well as certified Roon Tested. 

Dual RCA and XLR output connections provide the ultimate flexibility including bi-amplification installations. A subwoofer output is also included.

Rotel RC-1590 MKII Stereo Preamplifier

A solid starter preamp for HiFi newcomers and recent entrants. Has fully balanced xlr and rca inputs, features bass/treble tone controls, has MM phonostage. Sounds are full range, deep enough bass to solid treble. Has readable display (dimmable), fully functional remote. Comes in silver or black. The service and pricing by LENC are best in the market that I found, so buy with confidence. Eventually I will replace this with an Audio Research preamp classic but it will certainly do until then...
