rotelWe already knew Rotel’s RSX-1560 receiver delivered top-of-the-line performance. But it’s always nice to hear an objective source say the same thing. Arlen Schweiger of Electronic House magazine gave the receiver serious props in a recent review, calling it an “an all-around showoff … The RSX-1560 emphasizes clarity, transparency and depth. To my ears, two-channel listening felt just as immersive, if not more so, than the surround tracks.” He went on to add that “on the Allman Brothers’ Jessica, I caught background acoustic guitar details I wasn’t used to hearing despite listening to the tune hundreds of times. Movie soundtracks were equally engaging. Dolby TrueHD lossless audio encoding came through in full force on 300, as did samples of DTS-HD Master Audio from its demo disc. Immersive action from Black Hawk Down felt properly reproduced through the speakers as gunfire, running and dialogue occurred on and off the screen.”
