Rotel RC-1550 Preamplifier Unit

 

 

Anthony Nicosia writes as follows: Founded over forty-five years ago by Tachikawa-San Rotel is still a family run business where his son Bob Tachikawa is now running the day to day operations. They build every product with the fundamental engineering philosophy called the Balanced Design Concept. This philosophy is based on three areas of interests, parts selection, circuit topology and critical evaluation. The company strives to use top quality parts with the thought in mind that where they are placed is equally as important as the quality of the part. Trusting that human hearing will be the ultimate deciding factor Rotel sets up listening sessions during critical stages of production and not just for the final pre-production prototype. It is this holistic approach to product developmentthey believe will separate them from most other manufacturers in the market place today.

Way before this review was offered to me my own personal experience with a Rotel product dated back over forty years ago to sometime in the 1960's. The first time I was to spend my very own money for some audio equipment I did so by buying a Rotel receiver. Unfortunately I do not remember the exact model but my guess is it was either their very first receiver or a model close to it. Even though the exact model number escapes my memory I do remember this. The salesperson went right to the Rotel component to tell me that this will start me out on the path to good music, and he was right. That Rotel lasted me for about five years until I started on the upgrade path to separate components eventually leading me to where I am today. Did I get rid of the Rotel when I had outgrow it? No way! Instead it found a home in my parents house when my mother decided she would like to have music in her newly built enclosed back porch entertainment area.
