Rotel Introduces New 1080p DVD Player

North Reading, MA–January 2007–Rotel has been widely acknowledged for more than four decades as a leader in affordable high-end components designed for serious audiophile and home-theater fans. Now, in its 46th year, Rotel is proud to introduce their new flagship DVD player, the RDV-1093.

According to Mike Bartlett, VP and General Manager for Rotel, “The RDV-1093 is a 1080p (progressive-scan) DVD player with a built-in scaler and HDMI output, to ensure that the very best picture quality is delivered to late-generation video-display devices. At 1920×1080 pixels, the picture quality is nothing less than stunning, revealing in startling resolution even background details that, in the past, were often simply vague images. Even if your TV monitor is not 1080p now, the advanced video scaling in the RDV-1093 will deliver a better picture quality whether it be 480p, 720p or 1080i.”

The RDV-1093 provides all the disc-reading flexibility you could want: DVD-Video for movies, DVD-Audio for superb high-resolution audio, and even recordable discs, such as DVD-R and DVD-RW. SVCD and JPEG photo discs aren’t left out, nor are conventional music CDs or CD-R/RW discs–even those encoded with MP3 and WMA music files.

Any audio/video product’s performance begins with its power supply, and the RDV-1093 has been given special attention in this regard. A switching power supply with an advanced pulse circuit and individually regulated supply stages generate optimal voltages. Critical audio and video D/A converters are all wideband designs.

Features include variable and slow search, 6-step Zoom Play, Strobe Play, and Resume functions. Plus, you’ll find optical and coaxial digital audio outputs for easy connection to any system. For more advanced installations the RDV-1093 also features an RS-232 interface and discrete IR commands.

The RDV-1093’s video outputs include HDMI, composite, S-, and component video. Adaptive Geometrical Chroma Mapping reduces unwanted picture artifacts, while Digital Direct Progressive Scan (NTSC and PAL) lets you watch the best picture your monitor is capable of producing.

Available: First quarter 2007
Suggested Retail Price: $1,499.00
