The RA-1592 is built on the company's RC-1590 stereo preamp and RB-1582mk2 stereo amplifier--a Class AB amp rated at 200 watts per channel into eight ohms. The RA-1592 has a variety of digital and analog inputs, as well as user-selectable A/B speaker outputs, an RCA pre-output, and dual subwoofer outputs. The integrated amp is available now for $2,499.

From Rotel
Rotel Electronics has introduced the RA-1592 stereo integrated amplifier built upon the award-winning Rotel RC-1590 preamplifier and RB-1582mk2 power amplifier in a sleek, single chassis design.

While home theater is still in high demand for consumers, music is an integral part of our lives, and Rotel believes that listening to music should be more than a secondary pastime. The new RA-1592 stereo integrated amplifier provides an optimal solution for hearing a musical performance the way the artist intended, whether it's from modern digital sources or classic analog vinyl recordings.

The power supply section is the heart of an amplifier, and Rotel has not cut corners on its design.

The RA-1592 is a classic Class AB design with 200 watts per channel into eight ohms, and it features a rugged power supply with a massive toroidal transformer, coupled to select T-network, slit-foil capacitors. The result is a power supply that won't sag and distort under complex speaker loads or dynamic signal transients.

But the power amplifier section is only a part of the story. The high performance preamplifier section incorporates a superb 32-bit/768-kHz AKM digital-to-analog converter and analog stages of the highest quality. The DAC and surrounding circuitry supports a vast array of source inputs including DSD capable PC-USB (24-bit/192k), 3 coaxial, 3 optical, integrated aptX Bluetooth and a front mounted USB iPod input. For analog music lovers, there is a phono stage input (MM), XLR balanced input and 3 analog RCA source inputs. 

User selectable A-B speaker outputs with five-way binding posts, RCA pre-output and dual subwoofer outputs provide the ultimate flexibility in installation. The amplifier protection circuits monitor DC offset, overcurrent, short circuit and temperature to protect both the electronics and attached speakers.

Custom integration features include RS-232 and Ethernet IP control, two trigger outputs, remote IR input and automated digital signal sense power control for easy integration with streaming sources and control systems.

The RA-1592 integrated amplifier is truly a contemporary audio component with all of the features, power, and reference music capability you have come to expect from Rotel.

Available: April 2016
Suggested Retail Price: USD $2,499
