Rotel RSP-1570 A/V Processor

Rotel RSP 1570


Introduction

The latest processor from Rotel looks to improve upon the solid quality of the previous RSP-1069. The biggest change is that the RSP-1570 now features four HDMI 1.3 inputs with 1080p / 24 Hertz compliance which also supports the new "Deep Color" and xvYCC video options.

This is a 9 channel (single-ended) home-theater processor with multi-zone (analog only) capabilities, video switching and up conversion. It also is capable of decoding the new HD surround formats. However, there is no room correction, networking, or USB capabilities. For some that will kill the deal, for those that prefer simplicity over bells and whistles this may be the processor you have been looking for.
