rotel rdd1580 DAC

The Rotel RDD-1580 is available in Silver or Black at $799.00

Here are a few of the highlights from the review;

“Unlike many DACs built to a lower price point, the RDD-1580 doesn’t look or sound cheap. I was impressed by the RDD-1580’s dynamic acumen on all sources. Whether playing a large orchestral composition or a solo recording, the RDD-1580 retained the dynamic differences on both macro and micro levels.”

“The RDD-1580 produces a large, three-dimensional soundstage with pinpoint lateral focus. On the 24/44.1 version of Lorde’s “Royals” from HDTracks, each chorus member’s voice has its own unique location in the mix. Through the Rotel, the varying reverb tails for the percussion and vocal parts are also quite obvious. On the new high-resolution 24/192 version of the Grateful Dead’s “Box of Rain” from HDTrack’s Complete Studio Album Collection, the RDD-1580 reveals the added sparkle and quack from Jerry Garcia’s Fender Stratocaster, along with the greater decipherability of the background vocals. Like other better DACs that I’ve heard, the RDD-1580 makes it easy to listen deep into the mix.”

“Choose any cut from the HDTracks’ 24/88 download version of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, and the RDD-1580 will reward you with rollicking, powerful, yet well-defined bass. On Fred Redekop & Jay Taylor’s As Julia Ponders…, the RDD-1580 does a superlative job of retaining all the detail on both the leading and trailing edges of Taylor’s electric bass.”

“If your current or former state-of-the-art DAC is getting long of tooth, rather than knee-jerk replacing it with another megabuck DAC, you might want to give the Rotel RDD-1580 DAC a try. It will surprise you.”
