Many music lovers have a substantial collection of compact discs and so a high quality CD player is still an important part of their system. The Rotel RCD-1572 is ideal for those who play CD's regularly through a high performance music system. It is a straightforward player without all the bells-and-whistles that clutter and confuse most modern CD players. However it does possess all the latest digital technology to ensure a refined and articulate music performance that reveals even the most subtle nuances in a recording. 

The Rotel RCD-1572 elevates performance by utilizing a purpose designed and built CD mechanism. One of the most important features is the Wolfson WM8740 digital filter/stereo digital-to-analogue converter. Originally developed for high resolution sources, it is the product of extensive research and real world testing and processes digital signals up to 24-bits in length at sampling rates from 8 kHz to 192 kHz.

All circuits draw on a power supply based on a custom, Rotel made, toroidal power transformer that feeds precise rectifiers, voltage regulators, and advanced capacitors, to ensure musically accurate operation under even the most demanding conditions.

This is all part of Rotel’s long-proven Balanced Design Concept. It’s yet another way of assuring you that the RCD-1572 evidences a level of attention that will make it part of your reference-level music system for years to come.
