Review: Rotel RCX-1500

30 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Rotel is a well-respected home audio brand known for making excellent amplifiers and CD players. But with the RCX-1500 , the 50-year-old company has built upon those core strengths and produced a stereo amplifier that not only handles CDs and terrestrial radio stations, but also plays digital music...
  • Pros: One box to play it all — CDs, radio, internet streams, iPhone audio, USB sticks, and lossless streams over Wi-Fi. Digital sources benefit from the Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz DAC. Surprisingly easy to set up and use. Austere design has plenty of Euro charm.
  • Cons: Slot-load CD player is slow to start and makes unsettling mechanical crunching sounds. Simple, 4-line digital display on the front feels like the ’90s. The price is high, even though you get a lot for your money.

  • Summary: Hele pointen med et alt-i-et produkt må være at forene alle lydkilderne på ét sted og få den bedst mulige lydkvalitet ud. I den henseende skuffer Rotel RCX-1500 en smule, for lydkvaliteten er langt fra lige så imponerende som den lange udstyrsliste.
  • Pros: Masser af funktionalitet i en kompakt enhed
  • Cons: Tynd og uinspireret lyd

  • Summary: Rotel RCX-1500 byr på et vell av funksjoner – CD-spiller, forsterker og radio i samme enhet. Den virker også pris-gunstig, men så var det dette med kvalitet og kvantitet.
