Rotel RC-1590MKII Stereo Preamplifier

Reference audio systems deserve reference audio equipment. The Rotel RC-1590MKII is exactly that --a reference preamplifier rending analog and digital sources with natural expression in a wide and open sound stage in stunning clarity.

The heart of the RC-1590MKII begins with the power supply featuring dual in-house manufacture toroidal transformers. The transformers are physically and electrically isolated supplying dedicated analog and digital supply voltages to all critical circuits through low ESR slit-foil capacitors eliminating unwanted distortion and an extremely low noise floor.
