New Rotel RSX-1562 7.1 Receiver released!


Powerful, beautiful and feature filled, the new Rotel RSX-1562 will get a lot of attention from the movie and music lover. 
The RSX-1562 builds upon the excellence established by its highly acclaimed predecessor, the RSX-1560, but with the addition of new, improved circuitry and technologies such as HDMI® 1.4 with 3D. In addition, the advent of so many video sources such as a cable or satellite box, DVRs, DVD players, and WiFi or Ethernet audio / video feeds from devices such as Apple TV® and Roku® etc., have necessitated adding more HDMI inputs. The RSX-1562 now has six HDMI 1.4 inputs and two HDMI 1.4 outputs, one with an Audio Return Channel (ARC). 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.

A front-panel USB input for an iPod, iPhone, iPad, or other MP3 player is provided. The USB input provides a digital connection so that the RSX-1562's advanced DACs do the critical decoding. Additionally, the receiver incorporates Bluetooth operation (via a wireless dongle, included), so that the physical connection of portable audio players is not required. To provide even more audio versatility, the preamplifier includes a 10-band parametric equalizer, and advanced bass management.

Video signals are handled by the latest generation Faroudja Torino FLI30336 Cortez Advanced Platform which offers 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. The Faroudja Torino also includes an integrated 3D video decoder. The RSX-1562 is designed to support 3D video signals, whether from Blu-ray players or set-top boxes. The RSX-1562 supports all traditional audio and video processing features: Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS HD Master Audio, DTS HD, and more. Dual 32-bit DSP and 24-bit/192K audio ensure high sound quality and performance.
