Rotel RC1572

The new RC-1572 stereo preamplifier leverages the design of our flagship RC-1590 preamplifier including its 32bit/768kHz AKM stereo digital-to-analog converter to handle critical signal conversion. Among many refinements, the RC-1572 utilises relay switching for analog sources instead of an IC based switch to maintain the integrity of the signal path for RCA, phono and XLR inputs.



• Based on the flagship RC-1590 design
• DSD capable 32-bit AKM DAC
• aptX Bluetooth built-in
• XLR in and out
• MM Phono input
• RS232 and IP control
