ROTEL RSX-1562 in the Test

At first glance look barely his modernization the RSX-1562, because the biggest changes took place under his sheet metal dress. With dual processor performance and a fresh sound adjustment, he could even beat its successful predecessor.

You wouldn’t want to be in the skin of a product manager – time and again he has to decide new when the time for a follow-up device is right. While he’s constantly in the dilemma: because while the competition with still more recent standards and features, that you would also like to write on the flag, holding on the other hand gladly to the cherished. Although a manufacturer generally listens at the pulse of time and must keep pace, also some benefits have a longer product cycles for him. The development costs are spread over a longer period. You must also not immediately jump on every new bandwagon, but can watch in peace, if it turns out a new feature not yet as a bubble. And on top of that, the customer has the certainty that his expensive purchased device stamped losing wasn’t in no time as the spout device value.

At Rotel, it took over three years until now running the RSX-1562 as a successor of the 1560ers from the stack. The elegant aluminium front with its two remained the new times 16 lens buttons, only the assignment of right hand, something shifted. Also the two-line dot matrix display, the back-lit central volume and two tone controls have not left their place. Where previously the infrared eye sat, the most obvious distinguishing feature in the form of a USB port can be found here. The RSX-1562 crawled after normal MP3, WMA and WAV files from portable music players and memory sticks, however closes FLACs or demanding WMAs. In return he welcomes iPod and iPhone from the House of Apple. Optional docks the supplied Bluetooth adapter, which receives the Snowtape from the mobile phone with its A2DP profile, and these can get even with the other listening zones.

New connection Panel

Stayed on the back only the optical and coaxial digital inputs, as well as the antenna connections in its original location, the Rotelaner have changed completely the other Division. You now completely waive S-video jacks and extended the HDMI series to stately six inputs plus two outputs for TV as even video projector instead. The current 1.4A standard the convenient audio return channel (ARC) was introduced, which sends the signal of the TV to the receiver back – 3D reaches its destination now well-formed. In standby mode the last selected source is on the HDMI output still, so power can be saved.

As their signal receive up to three additional zones via RCA audio and video jacks, with individual source and volume selection, of course. A total of 16 jacks, that the operation of external Gerätschaften.Die speaker connections went to six 12-volt trigger outputs for amplifiers, beamer or motor screens, six IR outputs and four IR inputs for various infrared transmitter split, do all the way down. Just a separate connection is ready for each of the seven channels. What Setup it is connected, so that now classic 5.1 plus zone 2, 5.1 with bi-Amping or 7.1, the Rotel before all other settings asks, because it starts again after each change of channel assignment at the factory settings. He does not know changing setups anyway. The Digital ICE power amplifier modules supplied by B & O mounted flat on the lower deck, high efficiency eliminates the need a heat sink. They are powered from a power supply, a smaller ring core feeds on the upstream components. Laboratory reached the Rotel almost exactly the current ratings on the Watt, thus the standing 1562 as its predecessor correctly fed up in the feed.

Double computing power

Despite equal power amplifier section a lot has happened inside right. 1562 has: the power of two hearts: on the processor board, two dual core DSP calculate the sound signal instead of one. Core number one is responsible for the pure decoding, and handles all popular surround formats up to 7.1 channels, as well as the high-definition material Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master audio. He closes the high-frequency Bitstream DSD of an SACD, instead must get the 7.1-cinch-input. The second DSP core has no less to do, because he includes ten parametric equalizer bands for each of the eight channels. Five of them with Center frequencies between 40 and 160 Hz controls only the bass range. Your options are vast: the center frequency is part of plus/minus one octave into extremely fine 1Hz-Schritten selectable, the goodness in increments of 1 from 1 to 20, as well as the level of-12 to + 3 DB with 1dB step size. The remaining five bands differ in their 10 Hz or 100Hz-Stufen and divide the frequency range between 1110Hz and 20000Hz.An of this point coming two tone controls in the game, because they allow the level adjustment of the individual bands during operation. However only limited, because it is only the last selected channel. In addition, the new values are not within the actual EQ menu are transferred. Given the principle of the equalizer, a self measurement would be desirable. All in all neatly put to the new compared to its predecessor.

Obviously the Rotel developers have done a great job, because already in normal stereo mode he defected in 1562 prominent once again lighter and more transparent reproduction of its predecessor. Santana’s guitar benefited not only in the CD recording of “Supernatural Live”, but also in the multichannel version of the DVD. Sarah MacLachlan her “Angel” breathed it still loose, freely and with finer drawing in the microwave. The improvement like a red thread went with HD material. Here was the new boy from the excellent 1560 also settle, by laying the same portion to vitality, fine detail and transparency.

Conclusion

The RS X 1562 grew not only in terms of facilities with his potent parametric equalizer, but even increased compared to its predecessor. Even if you might miss the one or the other feature, he calmed down with the certainty that so quickly no successor will derate him.
