Product Description 

The RCX-1500 CD player is the most versatile component we’ve ever offered. Although it is an “all in one” model, compromise is not part of the design. In fact, the RCX-1500 has been engineered using components that you would find in more expensive separates. The DAC is the high-performance Wolfson with 24-bit/192kHz decoding. The amplifier uses our innovative Class D design that is highly efficient, runs cooler than older Class AB designs and provides plenty of voltage and current to easily drive lower impedance speakers down to 4 ohms.

With 100 Watts per channel available, feel free to hook up large floor-standing loudspeakers to the RCX-1500. The RCX-1500 is also a very high quality CD player, based on our outstanding RCD-1520. A front panel USB input for direct digital connection of an iPod or other USB class 2 devices is provided, too.

The receiver’s tuner section includes both terrestrial FM and Internet radio, plus access to premium music services* like Pandora, so your listening options are virtually limitless! There are presently over 15,000 Internet radio stations listed. And in order to help keep your favorite stations handy, the RCX-1500 includes 30 possible presets for instantaneous access to both FM and Internet broadcasts.The RCX-1500 supports both wired and WiFi Ethernet connections.

The RCX-1500, like the RDG-1520, supports UPnP technology and has been optimized for use with Windows Media Player 11 and 12. UPnP devices are “plug-and-play” in that when connected to a network they automatically announce their network address and supported device and services types, enabling clients that recognize those types to immediately begin using the device. Supported codecs include RealAudio®, WMA, MP3, AAC & AAC+ (non DRM), AU, WAV and AIFF.

As if all that isn’t enough, an RS-232 port provides system control and bi-directional feedback. The RCX-1500 is without doubt, one of the most flexible, high performance, single chassis stereo components available today. It may be the only stereo component you will ever need.
