If you say the name Rotel, I tend to think of cheese dip. Rotel is more than a tasty snack though; it’s also the name of a company that offers some nice audio gear for the music fan. The latest Rotel offering is the RCX-1500 and the receiver combines multiple sources into one device.
The RCX-1500 has a CD player that will let you listen to your music collection on disc. The device also can play internet radio and it has a FM/DAB receiver built-in as well. The 1500 uses a Wolfson 24-bit 192kHz DAC for decoding the audio. It has a class D amp inside with 100W per channel for powerful sound.
In addition to tuning in internet radio stations, the device works with services like SiriusXM and Pandora. The receiver can connect online via a wired Ethernet connection or 802.11b/g WiFi connectivity. Other features include a RS-232 port and support for most popular audio formats that are on the market today.Filed Under: Technology News
