What a valuable thing, not marketing, not a seller telling you what to buy…….words of a client who purchased and reviewed his purchase!


At the end of last year I began to look at replacing a 15 year old 5.1 500W Nakamichi AV-10 AVR with some new technology. At the time I was also using a M&K front, center, rear and sub-woofer speaker systems. These speakers work well in the large listening and viewing space, so there was no need for any change in speakers.
Bob Johannsen from Paradigm Integration is an old college friend, so we began talking about available alternatives. A rack of Mac’s has always been appealing due to the quality, reputation and visual appeal. But that sort of systems requires a bit of open space for the equipment.
After numerous conversations about current state of the art audio systems for living room home theater, Bob suggested that I look into the Rotel line of products. Because of space limitations, a set of individual components did not make sense. Since we have no direct line of site to the FM transmission sites, and are blocked, a tuner is unnecessary. An integrated AV Processor is the best present choice.
In November, Rotel announced the release of the RAP1580, a 7.1, 700W AVP and it appeared that this system was appropriate for my needs. Kerry, Bobs associate at Paradigm got her hands on an early release of the user manual in January and sent it on. Thanks Kerry. Despite all my pleas and begging, Bob would not get the RAP1580 out to me earlier this year, spouting something about no wine before its time.

The Rotel RAP-1580 $3,799.00

The Rotel RAP-1580 

About three weeks ago, I did the purchase contract with Paradigm, and five days later the system arrived at my doorstep.
The RAP1580 is easy to connect with plenty of HDMI, optical, RCA and speaker connections & etc.. The On Screen Display and set up menus are intuitive. Within ninety minutes of opening the box, the Rotel was connected, configured and delivering great sound. The Rotel is a high quality system, powerful, highly configurable, expandable to 11.1 and very easy to operate.
The old Nakamichi does not even begin to measure up the the quality sound delivered by the Rotel. The RAP1580 is ideal for the person who wants very high quality home theater and listening, with plenty of power to deliver any kind of content into a large room, but lacks the space for a rack of hardware.
Many thanks to Bob for letting me cool my jets while looking out for my best interests and to Kerry for keeping my interest stoked.
