Rotel RB-1590 Stereo Power Amplifier NEW

Rotel’s new Class AB stereo power amplifier is a powerhouse rated at 350 watts per channel into 8 ohms, both channels driven. That is indeed a lot of power, but larger listening rooms or less-sensitive loudspeakers require it to bring out the best possible performance and attain realistic audio dynamics without compression. The impressive capabilities of this amplifier begin with a solid foundation consisting of massive, twin, toroidal transformers custom made by Rotel. These transformers are just part of a rock-solid power supply that includes eight special British made BHC capacitors, known for their low loss and quick response times, thereby improving high energy signal transients and dynamic bass performance. These components will continue to supply all voltage and current requirements even under the most difficult load conditions. 
But Rotel’s philosophy of Balanced Design has never been about raw power alone. Extensive listening sessions have been used to carefully consider every aspect of circuit design and to rigorously select each component, to ensure that power is combined with nuance, detail, and overall musical performance. The circuit topography has been laid out in true monoblock design, ensuring maximum signal separation and improved stereo imaging. 
Features include XLR balanced and RCA input connections, two pairs of 5-way speaker binding posts, a 12-volt trigger control, thermal protection circuitry, over-current, and, overvoltage protection circuitry, a dual stage power-on relay to reduce surge current and extend longevity, and a detachable IEC power cord—all in a 5 U chassis with rack ears included. 
The RB-1590 has been designed for the most discerning audio enthusiast and will provide the highest levels of audio performance.
