Title:  Stereo CD Player

Since 1982, when the CD was introduced, Rotel has been refining technology and evolving circuitry to bring you extraordinary sound. The RCD-1570, the outstanding CD player in Rotel‘s 15 series, focuses careful refinements to reveal even the most subtle nuances buried in a CD’s pit spiral.
One of the RCD-1570’s most important features is the Wolfson WM8740 digital filter/stereo digital-to-analog converter. Originally developed for high resolution sources, it is the product of extensive research and real world testing and processes digital signals up to 24-bits in length at sampling rates from 8 kHz to 192 kHz. While word lengths and sampling speed may seem excessive for CDs delivering data at far lower rates, this high speed facility adds reserve capability to ensure proper reproduction under all circumstances. As the most crucial link between a CD’s digital data and the analog world in which we listen, this converter boasts significant attributes in addition to its superb high resolution capabilities.

Another advance is the RCD-1570’s slot-loading disc transport. In addition to mechanical simplicity and improved reliability, this design isolates the CD itself from potentially destructive vibration modes that may affect musical definition. And from a purely aesthetic viewpoint, it adds elegance by simplifying the front panel’s appearance.

This is all part of Rotel’s long-proven Balanced Design Concept. It’s yet another way of assuring
you that the RCD-1570 evidences a level of attention that will make it part of your reference-level music system for years to come.

*Note – all Rotel 15 series components may be rack mounted and remotely controlled via RS-232, IR, or 12 volt (depending on model) for complete stealth operation.
