While the RCX-1500 CD player is an all-in-one model, it has been engineered using components that you would find in more expensive separates. The DAC is the high-performance Wolfson with 24 bit / 192kHz decoding. The amplifier uses our innovative Class D design that is highly efficient, runs cooler than older A/B designs and provides plenty of voltage and current to easily drive lower impedance speakers down to 4 ohms. With 100 watts per channel available, feel free to hook up large floor-standing loudspeakers to the RCX-1500.
The receiver’s tuner section includes both terrestrial FM and Internet so your listening options are virtually limitless! There are presently over 15,000 Internet radio stations listed. And in order to help keep your favorite stations handy, the RCX-1500 includes 30 possible presets for instantaneous access to both FM and Internet broadcasts. A wireless Dongle (802.11) is provided for Ethernet connection or you may choose to use a wired connection. The RCX-1500, like the RDG-1520, supports UPnP technology. UPnP devices are “plug-and-play” in that when connected to a network they automatically announce their network address and supported device and services types, enabling clients that recognize those types to immediately begin using the device. Supported codecs include RealAudio®, WMA, MP3, AAC & AAC+ (non DRM), AU, WAV and AIFF.
As if all that isn’t enough, an RS-232 port provides system control and bi-directional feedback. In addition, the RCX-1500 is also a very high quality CD player, based on our outstanding RCD-1520. The RCX-1500 is without doubt, one of the most flexible, high performance, single chassis stereo components available today.
