Product Description 

The RSP-1582 has been two years in the making and is a wholly new platform. Rotel engineers evaluated painstakingly every circuit design and feature requirement. It is built with a modular construction to facilitate upgrades of key internal circuit boards, and is software updateable over the Internet or via a simple USB download if a network connection is not available. 

The RSP-1582 is a home theatre preamplifier/processor, of course, but first and foremost, it truly shines as an audio component. For example, six Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz devices are arrayed as four independent DACs for Front Left, Front Right, Center and Subwoofer channels with shared stereo DAC's for the rear channels. This topology offers exemplary performance all around, but provides the absolute best quality on the most critical channels. In theatre mode, a Texas Instruments Aureus DSP high-performance decoder is utilized with 10-channel Parametric Equalization. A high performance Texas Instruments Analogue-to-Digital convertor is used to facilitate optimum conversion of analogue signals for playback in surround sound modes. Balanced XLR and single ended connections are offered, and the audio stages use premium components in all signal critical applications. For pure stereo playback of analogue sources, the RSP-1582 features an analogue bypass to obtain the cleanest path.

For video use, the preamp/processor incorporates eight HDMI 2.0 video inputs all supporting 4K video resolution, three with HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. Dual HDMI outputs both support HDMI2.0. The modular approach of the video board supports future updates if necessary.

Other features include one front panel HDMI input with 4K video pass-through, built-in aptX Bluetooth technology, a PC-USB input that supports 24-bit/192kHz audio, CD, Tuner and 4 AUX analogue inputs, along with a multichannel input and XLR input. It even has a phono stage!

There is a seven-inch TFT display on the front panel to provide easy adjustments to all audio and video parameters without the need to turn on an external display or video projection system – perfect for when the equipment rack is remote located. And the RSP-1582 comes with rack ears in the box to make such installations easy.

In addition to its unassailable audio and video performance, custom installers will find the RSP-1582 ideal for any installation application with RJ45 network connection, Internet or USB front panel software updates, three source independent trigger outputs, a wired IR remote input, RS232 and IP interface for automation system control, 2 x IR output connectors for IR pass-through and front panel setup navigation control.

All of these features and technology mean nothing, though, if the end result doesn’t meet your performance expectations. That’s why Rotel engineers spend countless hours measuring, listening and refining the circuitry. The end result is a surround processor/preamplifier that is worthy of the finest music systems and theatres at an unrivalled price.
