As much as we love home theater and Dolby and DTS surround sound, we know two-channel audio is still alive and well.
Manufacturer Rotel realizes this as well, so after introducing its 15 Series components last year heavy on the multichannel side of things, it’s kicking the lineup old school with a half dozen two-channel additions.
The new models include two power amplifiers, two preamps, an integrated amplifier and a CD player, with model names:
RA-1520 integrated amplifier
RB-1582 power amplifier
RB-1552 power amplifier
RCD-1520 CD player
Pricing ranges from $699 to $1,499 (view slideshow for more specifics), and mixed and matched in one equipment rack sure makes for a stunning silvery group of audio nirvana.
Rotel says the new two-channel models will be available in late first quarter or early second quarter of this year, so whether you’re plugging in the RCD-1520 CD player or connecting your old turntable to the RA-1520 integrated amp make sure your music collection is ready to fire up.
