Rotel RA-1592 MKII: Flagship Integrated amplifier

The Rotel RA-1592MKII integrated amplifier combines the RC-1590 preamplifier and RB-1582 MkII power amplifier into one package. The circuits of both devices are mounted in such a way as to eliminate crosstalk and operate from independent power supplies. At the same time, the monoblock design of the Rotel RA-1592MKII simplifies its placement and also eliminates the need for additional connecting cables.


The amplifier has wide functionality and is capable of working with almost any signal source in a home audio system. Digital-to-analog conversion uses a premium Texas Instruments DAC chip with precision-tuned output filtering to achieve unprecedented acoustic detail, wide soundstage, and precise positioning.

The Rotel RA-1592MKII features a built-in MM phono preamplifier, line-level analog inputs (including one balanced XLR), three optical and three coaxial inputs (capable of receiving signals up to 24-bit/192 kHz), and a rear The housing panel has an asynchronous USB port capable of receiving signals in MQA and MQA Studio formats (up to 24-bit / 384 kHz) when connected to a computer.


In addition, the device is equipped with a Bluetooth module with support for the aptX audio codec, and on its front panel there is a USB connector for connecting an iPhone/iPod. You can control the operation of the amplifier using a large display, the information on which is easy to read from a great distance. The final amplifier in the Rotel RA-1592MKII is built on the principle of dual mono, operates in class A/B and develops an output power of 200 W per channel. Its power supply contains proprietary toroidal transformers as well as high-quality foil filter capacitors that can discharge almost instantly, which provides the widest dynamic range of sound.


Output stages built on discrete elements provide a high load damping coefficient (damping factor), which allows the Rotel RA-1592MKII to confidently cope with even the most complex speakers. You can connect two pairs of speakers to the amplifier, for example, if necessary, provide sound for another room.

To integrate the Rotel RA-1592MKII into smart home systems, RS232 and Ethernet interfaces are provided, as well as trigger outputs and an input of a proprietary remote control system. The amplifier is Roon Tested, providing the best possible Roon software experience so you can simply enjoy your music.
