A surround sound processor with classic Rotel audiophile quality for exceptional theater performance.
The RSP-1572’s advanced design builds upon a progression of outstanding home theater processors that have received critical acclaim around the globe. The RSP-1572 features important new technologies such as HDMI 1.4 with 3D capability. It offers six HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, with one HDMI output having ARC capability (Audio Return Channel). The ARC in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data “upstream” to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user flexibility and eliminating
the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connections.
A USB front input for iPod®/iPhone®/iPad® or other MP3 player use is provided. The USB input provides a digital connection so that the RSP-1572’s high quality 24-bit/192kHz DACs provide the crucial decoding. Additionally, the preamp/processor incorporates Bluetooth operation via a wireless dongle that is included, allowing streaming audio playback from tablets, phones, computers or other Bluetooth enabled devices.
To provide even more audio versatility, the preamplifier includes a 10 band parametric EQ and advanced bass management.
