The RSP-1572 is Rotel’s latest 7.1 surround sound preamplifier. Its advanced design builds upon a progression of outstanding home theater processors that have received critical acclaim around the globe. The RSP-1572 features important new technologies such as HDMI 1.4 with 3 D capability. It offers six HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs with one HDMI output having ARC capability (Audio Return Channel). 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 USB front input for iPod/iPhone/iPad or other MP3 player use is provided. The USB input provides a digital connection so that the RSP-1572’s high quality 24/192 DACs provide the crucial decoding. Additionally, the preamp/processor incorporates Bluetooth operation (via a wireless Dongle that is included), so that a physical connection of portable audio players (which have that capability), is not required. To provide even more audio versatility, the preamplifier includes a 10 band parametric EQ, and advanced bass management.

The RSP-1572 supports all traditional audio and video processing features with Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS HD Master Audio, DTS HD and more.Dual 32 Bit DSP’s and 24Bit/192K audio DAC ensure high sound quality and performance.
Multi zone outputs provide composite video and analog audio for 3 zones. Zone control includes source selection, volume and on/off. The RSP-1572 front panel display shows current source, volume and DSP mode. The OSD is available for customer setup using the HDMI, Component or Composite main video outputs.
