Dear Rotel friends,

I´ve been a big fan of Rotel sound quality for a while. My first Rotel product was an RSP-1068 (which I still have it in a box) and I still use a RSP-1098, with RMB-1075 & RB-1080 combo. As sources I use a 400 BD magazine from Sony (CX960), an Oppo BDP-83SE and an old Crestron ADMS-BR.

During all this years I found ways to keep using my beloved silver 1098, times passed and I bought an DVDO VP50Pro to work as a scaller and HDMI switch...

All connected to a pair of CM8, CM1 and CMC2.

Now, time has passed.. And it is time for me to upgrade again...

I was offered a RSX-1562 for an awesome price, and I would like use it as a pre-pro...

I have a few questions:

1- Sound & Video quality does it matches the RSP-1098 and DVDO VP50Pro or is is beter?

2- I have read several posts indicating that there is a lag bug in the HDMI, I can cope with this, but.. Is there any other serious bug affecting the RSX-1562?

3- Is the RSX-1562 good enough so I can finally let my 1098 and the VP50Pro go?

Thank you very much!

Listening is the best experience.

I am looking at power amps for the Monitor Audio Gold speakers I am getting.

I was looking at Anthem until I came across various rotel query threads and found that the RB-1582 MK II is rated at 200wpc at 0.03THD wheras the anthems quoted power is at 1% meaning the real power figure is possibly closer to 150wpc.

I would be starting with this amp to give me more power in stereo listening, whilst also feeing up more for the other speakers (until I add anothet 5 channel amp).

I would then be purchasing the RB-1555 or the RB-1585.

I am looking towards a 2+5 channel amp configuration because many 7 channel receivers only give around 100-120wpc...which despite being better for surround applications leaves me with less power than I currently have for stereo listebing with my yamaha rx-v3071 (150wpc 2channels driven, 0.08%THD into 8 ohms ).

I know that 120wpc for the surrounds is plenty ( in fact it is their rated rms input ) but the centre channel is rated the same as the fronts at 200watt rms.

Would the lower power for the centre channel be insufficient and/or is the lack of balanced inputs enough to make the 1585 significantly better or a requirement for my use?

I will be running 7.2 and will have the largest floorstanders, centre and surrounds in the series.

Hi everyone,

my name is lam, this is what i bought a few years ago but never set it up to it full potential.

I got a pair of ML- vista, ML- motiff center, and a pair of ML-Fx, sub- ML- Grotto I, and pair it with the Denon DBT-3313UDCI. The receiver is a rotel 1560 which also have a window base software to set it up. I just set it up to the best of my knowledge.

I know the setup i got is kinda old and out dated.

can some one show me how to set it up properly, cable, amp, anything. ? thanks
