Rotel Electronics announced a new five-channel surround-sound receiver at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show. The RSX-1058 features 5 x 75 watts per channel, a video scaler, four HDMI connections and the ability to play music simultaneously in four different rooms of the house.
A major highlight is the integrated video scaler, which upsamples and optimizes all video sources (including, satellite, cable VCR and DVD players) at up to 1080i resolution. Four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output provide advanced connections for newer source components and TV monitors.
The RSX-1058 also has multiroom audio capability so you can add music to up to four rooms. Optional keypads and a power supply are available to remotely access an FM tuner, CD player, or other source component. Volume, mute, and on/off can also be controlled from anywhere in the house. In addition, the RSX-1058 incorporates a RS-232 interface to provide for software updates or remote computer control of the system in custom installation applications. An IR input can also be used as an alternative control option.
