Rotel announced the RSP-1572 Surround Preamplifier/Processor, a 7.1-channel AV control center that features a sophisticated DSP, Parametric EQ And 3D video capability.

The RSP-1572 provides surround decoding and processing with outputs of up to 7.1-channel configurations, via Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS HD Master Audio and more. Dual 32 Bit DSP’s and 24Bit/192K audio DACs ensure highest quality playback performance.

The RSP-1572 features important new technologies such as HDMI 1.4 with 3D capability. It offers six HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs with one HDMI output having ARC capability (Audio Return Channel). The ARC in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data “upstream” to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection.

Features

  • 3 D capability
  • 6 x HDMI v1.4 ports inputs
  • 2 x HDMI 1.4 outputs (one with ARC)
  • Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus,
    dts-HD Master Audio
  • 10 band parametric EQ
  • Advanced bass management
  • 24 Bit / 192kHz audio DACs
  • Assignable 12-volt triggers
  • Video Transcoding to HDMI
  • Bi-directional RS-232 interface
  • Rear panel IR control ports
  • Second, third and fourth zone capable
  • Detachable AC cord
  • 3U cabinet

A USB front input for iPod/iPhone/iPad or other MP3 player use is included. The USB input provides a digital connection so that the RSP-1572’s internal 24 bit/192kHz DACs can do the crucial decoding for best sound quality. Additionally, the preamp/processor incorporates Bluetooth operation (via a wireless Dongle that is included), so that a physical connection of portable audio players for those that have that capability is not required. To provide even more audio versatility, the preamplifier includes a 10 band parametric EQ, and advanced bass management.

Video signals are handled by the latest generation Faroudja Torina FLI30336 Cortez Advanced Platform offering the most robust set of Faroudja DCDi Cinema video processing technologies available. Torino combines unique analog and digital processing to drastically reduce video noise without sacrificing image quality and sharpness. It also offers next-generation Faroudja RealColor color management technologies and an integrated 3D video decoder.

The RSP-1572 provides three additional zone outputs for composite video and analog audio. Zone control includes source selection, volume and on/off. The RSP-1572 front panel display shows current source, volume and DSP mode. The OSD (On Screen Display) is available for customer setup using the HDMI, Component, or Composite main video outputs. Remote control zone operation can be utilized by purchasing optional RS-232 touchpads by companies such as Crestron and RTI, or most IR based keypad systems.
