RAP-1580 is the ideal home theater solution for those who don’t have space for separate components, yet still desire uncompromising performance. It is an ultra-high-performance multichannel-integrated amplifier with surround processing that brings music and movies to life in a startlingly vivid way. Sporting the latest HDMI 2.0a hardware, DTS:X and Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 processing, its amplifier section is built upon a powerful class AB design with 7 x 100 watts per channel, all channels driven into 8 ohms, and anchored by a massive Rotel-made toroidal transformer.

The RAP-1580 utilizes high performance Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz Digital-to-Analog Converters for all channels. These low noise, audiophile quality DACs are supported with premium-grade audio parts in circuits tuned by Rotel’s acoustic engineering team in the U.K.

Inputs include 8 x HDMI video inputs with 2 x HDMI video outputs all supporting 4K video with 3 of these inputs and both outputs enabled with HDCP 2.2. There is a seven-inch TFT display on the front panel to provide easy adjustments to all audio and video parameters without the need to turn on the television or video projection system. This makes it ideal for set-ups when the equipment rack is located separately from the video display. A full suite of custom integration features is on-board.

Other features include a front panel HDMI input with 4K video pass-through, front panel iPod USB input with 2.1A charging and integrated aptX enabled Bluetooth technology for higher fidelity. The RAP-1580 also includes a PC-USB input supporting 24-bit/192kHz audio, a quality MM phono stage input, CD input, XLR balanced input, Tuner input, AUX analog input and multichannel input.

Rotel’s RAP-1580 is simple to operate, powerful, flexible and refined. It is a state-of-the-art single chassis audio/video component that outperforms most separates. In stereo or surround sound, this is a serious audio component.

Bowers & Wilkins is pleased to share that we are launching our first custom speakers using Diamond tweeters, the appropriately named CI800 Series Diamond. These models build on the success of the current CI800 Series but introduce a full measure of 800 D3 technology. To call them “best in class” is an understatement. They are very simply the best custom speakers, period; the embodiment of all we know about loudspeaker design applied to architectural solutions.

This exciting new series will be shipping this summer.

Best news for our CI800 clients…..you can upgrade to the new tweeter!
Costs to follow when available!

B&W CI800 Series Diamond ranging in price from $2500.00 to $4500.00

Here is a pair of B&W CWM7.3 in-wall speakers we have just pre-wired for in a full home remodel in Danville, CA.  Our client didn’t want speakers showing in the room but did want exceptional sound.  We chose the B&W and came up with a plan to angle them behind the wall for the correct tow in for the sweet spot in the listening room.  The should sound great, image well and be invisible once custom grills are added.

I will post more pictures as the project comes along.

 

Here are a few pictures of the progress in Danville.  We are in process with rack placement and final wiring.  The Control 4 automation product is in, the amps are in along with a few other items.  Now the process of taming the wire monsters!

The wire we put in the wall prior to Sheetrock on comes out and is hooked up to the electronics.

The wire we put in the wall for speakers, control and signal  prior to Sheetrock now come out of the wall from a predetermined place. The rack is populated and we begin hook up.  

Now to tame the wire beast!

From the front...still a work in progress.

When completed it will look very much like this rack located in a different area of the home. Neat, clean and organized!

NEW Power Amp coming from Krell!

Just announce, the KRELL Theater-7 multi channel power amp expressly designed for Home Theaters.

Krell Theater-7 $7,500.00

Krell Theater-7 $7,500.00

Krell iBias Class A amplifiers are the first to deliver the rich musicality of Class A amplifiers and the compromised dynamics of classic Krell amplifiers with greater efficiency and low power consumption than conventional Class A amplifiers.

DESIGN

Circuitry Highlights
Krell iBias Class A technology allows our latest amplifiers to run in full Class A mode to full power while minimizing heat generation.

The Theater 7 Amp uses iBias technology to maintain Class A operation up to 100 watts into 8 ohms for the left, right, and center channels and up to 50 watts for the four surround channels. This provides the critical front channels with high bias current to produce that lush, open Class A sound while also minimizing the heat output and power consumption of the whole amplifier.

The amplifier design uses Krell Current Mode technology that is fully differential and discrete in the critical gain stages. This results in a highly linear and extended frequency response, well beyond the range of hearing, for smooth effortless highs and tight high impact bass

Power Supply Highlights

The power supply consists of two 700VA toroidal transformers and 160,000uF of capacitance. This is shared among all the channels so all of that power is available to the channels with the most demand.

In real world conditions the left, right, and center channels require the lion’s share of the power so this gives the Theater 7 a more effective power supply than other amplifiers that have smaller dedicated power supplies for each channel.

Feature Highlights

Network connectivity brings convenience,
monitoring, and reporting to end users from any smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
Amplifier configuration options include display brightness timeout and inactivity timeout. The inactivity timeout conserves energy by placing the amplifier in stand-by when there is no signal for longer than the selected time period. Firmware updates can also be initiated directly from the web server.
Output current, fan status, and operating temperature are monitored in real time for conformance with preset limits. Any faults are reported on the front panel and also on the web server interface. Additionally, the amplifier will send notification of any operational anomalies to the e-mail addresses entered on the web server interface.
