Rotel RSX-1550 A/V Receiver

 

Longtime readers will recognize the Rotel RSX-1065 as my reference A/V receiver. It's been around so long that it's no longer listed on Rotel's Website. Mine has been in service since 2001, when I reviewed it, setting a record for longevity and giving...

Rotel RSX-1550 review

 

There might be a few holes in the spec sheet, but this mighty Rotel certainly knows how to impress with DVD and Blu-ray soundtracks

Terrific build and styling ; excellent drive combined with depth, weight and solidity ; great detail and dynamics

Some might long for those missing features

Rotel RSX-1550

 

The Rotel RSX-1550 receiver features an up-to-date specification, and though a little simplistic compared to rivals, it's a great movie machine.
