Featuring 7 channels of 100W power output, the new Rotel RSX-1562 AV receiver combines cutting edge video and audio technology with traditional pure audio performance, making movies and music equally satifying.
Rotel has over 50 years of experience in designing and manufacturing high performance electronics for home entertainment. Our latest advanced component is thenew RSX-1562, a 7.1 channel, surround-sound receiverthat can serve as master control and amplifier for all audio/video sources and speakers in a home theatre system. The RSX-1562 builds upon the excellence established by its highly acclaimed predecessor, the RSX-1560,but with the addition of new, improved circuitry and technologies such as HDMI® 1.4 with 3D. In addition, the advent of so many video sources such as a cable
or satellite box, DVRs, DVD players, and WiFi or Ethernet audio / video feeds from devices such as Apple TV® and Roku® etc., have necessitated adding more HDMI inputs. The RSX-1562 now has six HDMI 1.4 inputs and two HDMI 1.4 outputs, one with an Audio Return Channel (ARC). The ARC in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data “upstream” to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user
flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.
A USB front input for iPod/iPhone/iPad or other MP3player use is provided. The USB input provides a digital connection so that the RSX-1562’s advanced 24Bit/192K DACs can provide the critical decoding. Additionally, the receiver incorporates Bluetooth operation so that a physical connection of portable audio players (which have this capability), is not required. To provide even more audio versatility, the preamplifier includes a 10 band parametric EQ, and advanced bass management. Video signals are handled by the latest generation Faroudja® Torino FLI30336 Cortez Advanced Platform offering the most robust set of Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing technologies available. Torino combines unique analogue and digital processing to drastically reduce video noise without sacrificing image quality and sharpness. It also offers next-generation Faroudja RealColor, colour management technologies. The Faroudja Torino includes an integrated 3D video decoder. The RSX-1562 is designed to support 3D video signals, whether from Blu-ray players or set-top boxes. The RSX-1562 supports all traditional audio and video processing features with Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby
Digital Plus, DTS® HD Master Audio, DTS HD and more.
Dual 32 Bit DSP’s and 24Bit/192K audio DACs ensure high sound quality and performance. The amplifiers on board the RSX-1562 are ICE® Class
D design. The power output of the receiver is 7 x 100 watts into 8 ohms @20Hz - 20kHz and can double that figure at 4 ohms. Due to their efficient design, the surround sound receiver runs relatively cool even at higher levels of operation. As heat is a liability for all electronics, this feature benefits the longevity of the unit.
Multi zone outputs provide composite video and analogue audio for 3 zones. Zone control includes source selection, volume and on/off. The RSX-1562 front panel display shows current source, volume and DSP mode. The OSD is available for customer setup using the HDMI video output.
The RSX1562 is a superbly engineered, surround-sound receiver capable of delivering outstanding audio and video performances from all your music and movie sources.
