ROTEL RDD-1580 DAC
Rotel’s RDD-1580 brings you fine audio reproduction from any digital source whether it be
legacy PCM sources or the latest in digital file formats. The RDD-1580 uses two Wolfson WM8740
DACs in a complementary configuration that reduces noise and distortion well beyond that which
a single converter can provide.
A front panel USB input supports Apple iPod, iPhone and iPad as well as streaming via
Bluetooth with the included adapter. The rear panel PC-USB input will support files up to 24
bit/192kHz in asynchronous mode. Two sets of rear panel RCA-style coaxial and TOSlink optical
digital inputs are optimized for LPCM data streams in any common format from the CD’s 16-
bit/44. 1 kHz standard to high definition sources with 24-bit/192 kHz audio data.
A Rotel-designed and manufactured toroidal transformer gives the RDD1580 a well-regulated
power supply. Advanced Slit-Foil capacitors provide storage capabilities that ensure
substantial and stable operating voltages and current to all circuit stages.
The carefully tuned analog section is tuned to extract the most sonically accurate signal
Built for stunning sound quality from a multitude of digital formats, the RDD-1580 is a
first rate combination of superior sonics and technology.
