 The RSP-1582
For two years, Rotel engineers painstakingly evaluated every circuit design and feature requirement of the RSP-1582, challenging themselves to produce the very best audio/video performance possible for home entertainment. The RSP-1582 incorporates all of the functionality and video performance that any home theater enthusiast could want.

DACs featured in the RSP-1582 preamp/processor consist of six 24-bit/192kHz Wolfson WM8740 chips, four dedicated DACs for the Front Left, Front Right, Center and Subwoofer channels, ands shared stereo DAC's for the rear and surround channels. Also included is a Texas Instruments PCM1804 audio-performance analog-to-digital converter (ADC).

Multichannel soundtracks are decoded by a Texas Instruments Aureus TMS320DA808 DSP chip with a 10-channel Parametric Equalization (PEQ). Digital inputs include: optical (3), coaxial (3), PC-USB input supporting 24bit/192kHz audio, and an embedded aptX Bluetooth receiver for CD quality wireless connectivity.

The RSP-1582 has an analog Bypass function for relevant input signals, which circumvents the DSP section to obtain the purest analog signal path. The analog inputs include: Phono stage, Auxiliary (4), XLR balanced input, 7.1 channel input, and conventional stereo analogue inputs (6). The analog pre-outputs are presented on fully balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors, both with twin subwoofer connections.

The volume control permits fine adjustments of level in increments of 0.5dB.

Video Highlights

The RSP-1582’s eight HDMI 4K video pass-through inputs utilize a Silicon Image Sil9573 2K/4K HDMI transceiver. There are also two HDMI 4K video pass-through outputs (one ARC/CEC enabled). And a convenient front-panel HDMI input with 4K video pass-through.
