Rotel have over half a century's worth of experience in designing, developing and constructing audio equipment to the finest standards, retaining an affordable price and impressive performance. Rotel design and construct everything from the core components to the finished products themselves, in their own factories under their own high standards of quality control. This category focuses on Rotel's range of highly capable 2 channel and 5 channel power amplifiers.

The RC-1590 has been engineered specifically to reflects Rotel's design philosophy of offering of the best possible performance at every price category. The RC-1590 offers the discerning music listener an intuitive and easy-to-operate hifi experience. The unit caters to a vast number of both analogue and digital inputs and is ready to be used with essentially any source component, so no matter where your tracks are stored, the RC-1590 is able to read and replay them with an unrivalled level of accuracy. 

The heart of any high quality audio component is the power supply. Rotel-specific toroidal transformers ensure an accurate and undisrupted signal process between both the analogue and digital circuits. These capacitors use a Slit-foil design, resulting in a quick charge/discharge time and low signal loss, ensuring a tight and controlled bass performance.
The RC-1590 is packed full of brains, too. All internal circuitry and componentry has been designed and meticulously evaluated over extensive listening sessions, ensuring the warmest and richest level of audio fidelity possible at this price point. Analogue inputs brag a phenomenally low-noise circuitry. A high performance phono stage is integrated within the RC-1590, capable of both moving magnet and photo stage turntable cartridges. 
The digital inputs are fully isolated and feed directly to a precision AKM, 34-bit/768kHz digital to analogue converter chipset that also supports PCM and DSD formats. Three coaxial inputs, three optical PCM inputs, a front USB and rear PC-USB are integrated within the RC-1590, as well as an internal Bluetooth apt X receiver for direct lossless, wireless audio transmission.
