Long recognized as a central component in superb yet cost-effective music systems, the integrated amplifier’s job has evolved substantially as many music-lovers have migrated to digital sources. The RA-1572 is one of the best examples of melding classic analog design with contemporary digital circuits to bring all of your sources to life with surpassing fidelity.
As typical of Rotel amplifiers, the RA-1572’s circuitry draws on a high capacity power supply based on a Rotel custom designed and in-house manufactured oversized toroidal transformer. In addition to providing an abundance of voltage and current for all operating stages, the transformer’s toroidal shape helps prevent stray radiation patterns from corrupting audio signals as they pass through adjacent circuit stages.
Subsequent power supply segments built with tight-tolerance parts including T-Network capacitors provide the exact voltage and current requirements to ensure stress-free signal reproduction.
The RA-1572’s input section is substantially more flexible than that found in most integrated amplifiers. In recognition of the predominance of digital sources available today, the RA-1572 has a built-in state of the art 32-bit/768kHz AKM digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and analog stages of the highest quality. The DAC and surrounding circuitry supports a vast array of source inputs including DSD capable PC-USB (32-bit/384kHz). A front panel USB input is provided for easy connection of a wide variety of music storage devices including Apple iPods, iPhones, and iPads. The Bluetooth input supports aptX for superior performance with compatible devices. In addition, two each coaxial (RCA) and optical (TOSlink) inputs provide easy connections for LPCM music sources including popular streaming devices with up to 24-bit word lengths sampled at 192 kHz. Importantly, it is possible to fix the level and set an auto-on option with digital inputs for use with devices that provide their own volume control for convenient “hands-off” use. Analog inputs include a pair of balanced XLR connectors in addition to conventional RCA jacks.
The Class AB output stage uses discrete devices to ensure precise reproduction of all signals regardless of origin with virtually any loudspeaker. The power output, conservatively rated at a robust 120 watts per channel into 8 ohms, is substantial as it is a continuous “both channels driven simultaneously” rating fully in keeping with real-world requirements and Rotel’s tradition of providing extraordinary value. A mono subwoofer output is also provided.
User conveniences include two 12-volt triggers to control on/off operation of other components, a highly visible VFD display for set-up, internet-based software updates, as well as RS232 and IP control capabilities.
A NEW SONIC WORLD RICH OF PRECISON AND REALISM
Major innovation, the new MC40 range is dedicated to all the music lovers looking for a new high-fidelity experience. With the introduction of SCS high-end technology in this price segment, Cabasse invites you to discover a new sonic world rich of precision, realism and 3D sound stage. Fitted with the new BC10 2-way coaxial unit and twin 17 cm Duocell woofers, the 3-way Java MC40 speakers bring live sound emotion with elegance and unrivaled value.
COAXIAL MIDRANGE TWEETER
Developed from the TC23, the three-way co-axial driver fitted to the top of the range speakers, including the flagships “La Sphère” and “l’Océan”, the BC10 offers a faithful reproduction of timbres with no artificial coloration or lassitude in long listening, and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth in this price segment.
DUOCELL CONE WOOFERS
The 17 cm (7”) woofers of Java are fitted with a Duocell cone designed by Cabasse and manufactured by Cabasse robots. The very light, but rigid and nicely damped membrane has an exponential profile and variable thickness, to obtain the most of long throw systems and powerful magnets. They bring the full precision and vivacity required for high fidelity, true to live, sound.
CROSS-OVERS WITH VARIABLE SLOPES
The Cabasse development protocol combines numerous measurements in an anechoic room, combining on-axis and 360° results. It guarantees a perfect control of both the directivity index and the total radiated power all along the frequency bandwidth to match the SCS principles. It is a key process, together with listening sessions, in the development of the cross-over boards. The slopes can vary from 6 to 24 dB per octave for an optimal acoustical phasing, taking into account the influence of the external shape of the enclosure to optimize the qualities of the co-axial drive-units.
