Rotel’s RSP-1098 surround sound processor with second zone capability is a command center for the very best home theaters. Here, you’ll find outstanding performance coupled with startling simplicity.
In keeping with Rotel's Balanced Design tradition, our engineers specified high performance elements from several cutting-edge suppliers. For example, Cirrus Logic's CS49400, a 32-bit digital signal processor, decodes surround formats like Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic II, DTS ES (matrix and discrete), DTS 96/24, and DTS Neo:6. The CS49400 even has the number-crunching ability to process Rotel's own 7.1-channel Extra Surround mode for enhanced enjoyment of virtually any source. And, of course, HDCD and MP3 capability, too.
Instead of a jumbled array of controls and arcane symbols, you’ll find an integral LCD color monitor flanked by just a power switch, two knobs, and six miniature pushbuttons. These elements let even technophobes enjoy the RSP-1098’s exceptional performance, yet allow more sophisticated users a level of control, system customization, and convenience simply beyond the capabilities of lesser processors. Easy to use, but complete with all of the features and performance you would expect from Rotel, the RSP-1098 will form the heart of a superb home theater system for many years to come.
