AAD M Series Speaker System and Rotel RSX-1057 A/V Receiver

 

What would your life be like if you'd married the first person you ever dated? If you want a great home theater system, sometimes it pays to dig deeper. OK, American Acoustic Development (AAD) stands in the shadow of larger and more prestigious brands,...

Rotel RSX-1057 AV Receiver

 

Being big in the Audiophile community is one thing, but that hasn't done much to help Rotel win the numbers game in this country. Take the RSX-1057 AV Receiver ($1,299), which, in typically Rotel fashion, seems to miss the mark with "only" 75 Watts of...

To me, Rotel has always been the Everyman's answer to high-end audio. The company has always followed a "straight wire with gain" philosophy, which has earned it respect throughout the audiophile community. Like NAD, it's believed in holding to...

ROTEL RSX-1057

 

Purchased the RSX-1057 based on comments from those that had listened to it. I had never purchased a reciever in this price range (this high). As far as audio performance, I am well pleased. I believe I would have probably had to pay twice as much to...

Product Specifications

Rotel's RSX-1057 surround sound receiver might seem like just another entry in this very crowded component category. Yet, the RSX-1057 distinguishes itself from the competition during actual use with an overbuilt power supply that delivers the extreme voltage and current required during those explosive soundtracks so prevalent in today's movies. The high current amplifier section puts a full 75 watts RMS per channel at your sonic disposal (that's with all five channels driven simultaneously from 20 Hz to 20 kHz with no more than 0.05% THD!). In the real world, this is far more power than you'll find in other products that provide only two-channel ratings. Of course, superb power supply design helps here as does careful parts evaluation and selection. But, that's simply part of Rotel's balanced design heritage. The RSX-1057 is HDMI ready now with two HDMI inputs and one HDMI output to connect your A/V components to the latest generation video displays with 1080P capability. Will you be moving your system to a larger environment, or considering an eventual move to full 7.1 surround capability? The RSX-1057 features an option that provides for the simple addition of a two-channel amplifier to expand your home theater options to full 7.1 should you desire it. Rotel hasn't forgotten convenience either. The RSX-1057 provides analog and digital connections for up to seven additional components. The RSX-1057 even allows you to re-label inputs, assign inputs, perform advanced bass management and equalize channels. Advanced microprocessors from crystal semiconductor handle Dolby digital, Dolby digital EX, DTS, DTS ES discrete and matrix, DTS 24/96, DTS Neo: 6 and Dolby Pro Logic II X decoding and provide several music modes for your enjoyment, too. Three component inputs and internal video transcoding let you see the best picture possible regardless of your source. The RSX-1057 is also for custom installations. A fully programmable remote control is standard.
