To say that the Rotel RB-1582 mkII is an in-store favourite would be an understatement, whether we're looking to set up a quality Pre/Power system or add a little more depth to an AV set-up the 1582mkII is always high on the list. When set-up with a quality pre-amplifier such as the Rotel RC-1590 (Link here) The amplifier handles itself brilliantly, being neither too bright and harsh nor overly bassy. What I have always appreciated about Rotel equipment is that it never seems to add anything to the sound, it only gives out what it is given which is what all good HiFi should do
The RB1582mk2 is a heavily revised and re-worked version of the original and highly regarded RB1582, offering even greater musical enjoyment than it's previous incarnation. With 200 watts power channel on tap and huge current reserves, the RB-1582mkII is capable of driving very low impedance speakers very effectively. Any great power amp is only as good as it's power supply, and the 1582 mk2 has a very high current toroidal transformer at its cure, supported by over 60,000 uF of slit foil capacitors, which are able to charge and discharge very rapidly, allowing it to produce high dynamic peaks needed by the music.
Both balanced and unbalanced inputs are provided on the rear panel to suit your pre-amplifier. Each channel of the power amplifier is constructed as a dual mono amplifier, sharing the power supply only, and care taken to provide a very low noise star earthing arrangement to ensure low noise and hum. Ten pairs of high current bipolar junction transistors per channel can easily cope with the dynamic demands of this amplifier, ensuring long-term reliability.
