Rotel Electronics, has just introduced a new digital-to-analog converter (DAC) – the RDD-1580. The new RDD-1580 uses a pair of Wolfson WM8740 stereo DAC chips to ensure low noise and distortion.
The RDD-1580 provides flexibility with a front panel USB input for Apple iPod, iPhone, and iPad as well as streaming via Bluetooth with an included adapter. On the rear is a PC-USB input that handles up to 24 bit/192kHz files in asynchronous mode. There are also two sets of rear panel RCA-style coaxial and Toslink optical digital inputs, up to 24-bit/192 kHz.
A well regulated powers supply with a Rotel designed and manufactured toroidal transformer is incorporated into the full size 1U chassis. Using advanced custom Slit-Foil capacitors, substantial and stable operating voltages and current are provided to the critical circuit stages.
The RDD-1580 provides both single-ended and balanced outputs with RCA and XLR connections respectively. In addition, the RDD-1580 provides high-current charging capability (2.1 amperes) for an iPad or similar device.
The RDD-1580 will be available in a matte black or brushed silver finish beginning in November 2013 at a MSRP of $799.00 U.S. Look for more details to be shared at: www.rotel.com.
