ROTEL RA-1570 Integrated Amplifier

Okay kids here you go. You want to buy an integrated amp for a thousand bucks, and there’s some nice ones. But what if you could buy a $1600 integrated with FULL WARRANTY for $1099. Hell yeah! That’s what I’m talkin’ about! The Rotel RA-1570 is one of the most popular integrated amps ever produced. Amazing quality with a REAL output stage. Not some mamby pamby B.S. amp. They know how to build it robust! It will drive any speaker we sell. Stunning to look at, too!

When you have a product this popular a manufacturer like Rotel will end up with some open units. They are in generic boxes, beautiful condition, and are 100% perfect functionally. And the best news is this: They have a 5-year Factory Warranty parts and labor!!!

Here's a description from Rotel:

Long recognized as a central component in superb yet cost-effective music systems, the integrated amplifier’s job has evolved substantially as many music-lovers have migrated to digital sources. The RA-1570 is one of the best examples of melding classic analog design with contemporary digital circuits to bring all of your sources to life with surpassing fidelity.

As typical of Rotel amplifiers, the RA-1570’s circuitry draws on a high capacity power supply based on a Rotel custom designed and in-house manufactured oversized toroidal transformer. In addition to providing an abundance of voltage and current for all operating stages, the transformer’s toroidal shape helps prevent stray radiation patterns from corrupting audio signals as they pass through adjacent circuit stages.

Subsequent power supply segments built with tight-tolerance parts including T-Network capacitors provide the exact voltage and current requirements to ensure stress-free signal reproduction. The RA-1570’s input section is substantially more flexible than that found in most integrated amplifiers. In recognition of the growing popularity of digital sources, this amplifier provides a front panel USB input for easy connection of a wide variety of music storage devices including Apple iPods, iPhones, and iPads. A rear panel asynchronous PC-USB input supporting up to 24-bit/192kHz is also provided. In addition, two each coaxial (RCA) and optical (TOSLINK) inputs provide easy connections for LPCM music sources including popular streaming devices with up to 24-bit word lengths sampled at 192kHz. Importantly, it is possible to fix the level on these sources for use with devices that provide their own volume control. Analog inputs include a pair of balanced XLR connectors in addition to conventional RCA jacks.

A Wolfson WM8740 stereo D/A converter handles critical conversion from digital data to continuous analog waveforms. The Class AB output stage uses discrete devices to ensure precise reproduction of all signals regardless of origin with virtually any loudspeaker. The power output, a robust 120 Watts per channel into 8 ohms, is substantial as it is a continuous “both channels driven simultaneously” rating fully in keeping with real-world requirements and Rotel’s tradition of providing extraordinary value. User conveniences include separate pre-out/main-in connectors, a highly visible VFD display for set-up, and a precisely calibrated electronic volume control.
