Rotel RSX-1550 7.1 A/V Receiver

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction

Almost 50 years at Rotel has culminated in the 15 Series relatively new and was highly anticipated from 2009. The RSX-1550 showed up at my home in mid-2010. Admittedly, I'm a little behind on my review of the Rotel receiver and although this is an apology to the good people at Rotel for their patience, it speaks volumes about the product I've had in my system for many, many months. So why write about a receiver that's not quite as new as it was when I first received it? I suggest that Rotel specifically designs for the long haul, this receiver is not going away. Rotel doesn't replace components like last year's fashion.
