Sorry, This product is no longer available



Ex-display Bowers and Wilkins Rotel RA-1570 available at a discounted price while stocks last. Great condition with all original documentation, packaging and accessories supplied. Includes the same manufacturer's warranty as a sealed unit.

 The Rotel RA-1570 is a new high end stereo integrated amplifier with integrated digital to analogue converter designed to appeal to music lovers who own both analogue and digital music sources, and who insist on the best quality sound reproduction at the price. With 120W per channel power output on tap, it can drive the largest of loudspeakers with ease to high levels, with very low distortion, thanks to the over sized custom transformer in the power supply and highly efficient class AB discrete component power amplifiers.

Five line level analogue inputs are provided to give ample connection options for CD, Tuner, Aux 1 and Aux 2 plus a balanced audio input on XLR connections for the best possible analogue connection to the matching RCD-1570 CD player. A high quality moving magnet phono input completes the source inputs.

The high quality on-board DAC has three inputs to accept SPDIF digital audio on two coax or two optical inputs, plus a USB-B input ideal for connection of a PC or laptop. The front panel USB-A socket is suitable for connection to your Apple iDevice, supporting the playback of WMA, WAV and MP3 files. The Wolfson WM8740 DAC can handle 24 bit music files with 192kHz sampling frequency.

The preamp and power amplifier sections can be split to allow an AV processor to be included into the system, or even to permit an additional power amplifier to be added. Eight high quality binding posts take the audio output to speakers A and speakers B connections, ideal if you want audio on a second pair of speakers in an adjacent room, such as kitchen.

Two trigger outputs and Rotel IR link enable a variety of custom installation automation options. Black or silver brushed aluminium fineshes give the product a quality, understated appearance which will compliment any other audio products in your system.

Note: Most ex-showcase/ex-display units are mint condition. Occasionally, minor aesthetic marks or blemishes may be present. While the unit may not be 100% perfect aesthetically, the sound and performance remains uncompromised.
