Introduction to the Rotel RMB-1085

Class D switching amplifiers are here to stay. My first real interaction and extended listening session was with Rotel's two channel powerhouse, the RB-1092. More information about Rotel's Class D implementation can be found in that review. To summarize, the Rotel RB-1092 amplifier provides exceptional sound in a tiny package. The RMB-1085, reviewed here, is a five channel home theater amplifier that uses similar ICE power modules as the rest of the Rotel Class D amplifiers.
