Review: Rotel RCX-1500

 

Rotel's stereo amplifier not only handles CDs and terrestrial radio stations, but also plays digital music from just about any source.

One box to play it all — CDs, radio, internet streams, iPhone audio, USB sticks, and lossless streams over Wi-Fi. Digital sources benefit from the Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz DAC. Surprisingly easy to set up and use. Austere design has plenty of Euro charm

Slot-load CD player is slow to start and makes unsettling mechanical crunching sounds. Simple, 4-line digital display on the front feels like the ’90s. The price is high, even though you get a lot for your money
