Rotel RC-1590MKII Stereo Pre-Amplifier

The RC-1590 MKII stereo preamplifier has been engineered to the highest audio performance levels and provides an incredible level of control and flexibility for the user. Starting with a high performance power supply consisting of two Rotel custom built toroidal transformers for maximum efficiency and low magnetic fields, these transformers provide low-noise isolation between the analog and digital signals. They are part of a reference grade power supply consisting of individual analog and digital regulator circuits with custom-made slit-foil capacitors. Slit-foil capacitors have very quick charge/discharge times and low signal loss ensuring tight bass performance.
