North Reading, MA–January 2007–Rotel Electronics, well-known for their affordable high-end audio and home theater components, plans to introduce a new five-channel surround-sound receiver at CES 2007 that offers a home-entertainment solution to those who demand a high level of performance and functionality without the expense of separate, multi-component home theater and multiroom audio systems.
The RSX-1058 features 5×75 watts per channel, a high-performance video scaler for outstanding picture quality, four HDMI connections and the ability to play music simultaneously in four different rooms of the house.
According to Mike Bartlett, Rotel’s Vice President and General Manager, “The new RSX-1058 is based on the proven design platform of the highly successful RSX-1057 receiver. The introduction of the RSX-1058 adds yet another level of sophistication and functionality, which makes it the perfect one-solution receiver for a whole-house entertainment system.”
Important features integrated into the RSX-1058 include a high-performance video scaler that upsamples and optimizes all video sources (including, satellite, cable VCR and DVD players) for startlingly lifelike picture quality at up to 1080i resolution. Four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output provide advanced connections for newer source components and TV monitors.
The RSX-1058 also has multiroom audio capability for homeowners who want to add music to up to four rooms of the house. Optional keypads and a power supply are available to remotely access the most used features of a FM Tuner, CD player, or other source component. Volume, mute, and on/off can also be controlled from anywhere in the house. In addition, the RSX-1058 incorporates a RS-232 interface to provide for software updates or remote computer control of the system in custom installation applications. An IR input can also be used as an alternative control option.
