RS Audio Cables Review
Can there be a more polarizing topic among audiophiles than cables? Audio forums are filled with animated chats, debating the validity and effectiveness of after-market speaker cables, interconnects and power cords. Non-believers affirm there is nothing to gain by paying additional money for cables – “wire is wire.” Others have spent thousands of dollars on cables and swear the improvements are real. And judging by the number of cable manufacturers and different designs offered, there certainly is a market of consumers hungry for – or at least very curious about - wiring upgrades. The skepticism, however, is not surprising, considering the movement toward designing audiophile-grade cables didn't take full flight until the 1980s. Ever since, hobbyists and manufacturers themselves have been engaged in lofty discourse over what cables actually do to the sound of an audio system – if anything. ...

Role Audio Kayak Bookshelf Speakers Review
Going green is becoming a popular choice for consumers looking to lessen their ecological footprint on planet earth. Small changes made by many, over time, can make big differences. This is a wagon that needs no band: reduce, reuse, recycle and repeat. While the Green Revolution is still in its relative infancy, many consumers and companies are already changing their directives to reflect a commitment to greener living.  While researching new and recent audio gear, I came across Role's Web site (www.roleaudio.com ) and was drawn in by the company's alternative “green” speaker offerings. “Use the latest technology and the least amount of drivers, crossover parts, and materials to deliver big speaker performance in the smallest possible cabinet designs.” That's part of Role Audio's credo; it's other is a commitment to manufacturing eco-friendly audio gear. Role is using certified green ...

Rotel RCD-06 SE CD Player Review
The bug struck me late 2003. I was at a bookstore looking through magazines when a cover lured me in with its display of speakers and amps and CD players – the components of the year as judged by that audio publication. Thumbing through it, I was astonished by the number of manufacturers represented that I had never heard of. My jaw also dropped looking at the price tags of much of the featured equipment. Certainly it would be sweet to have 50K (or more) to drop on a system but my budget was more modest. I bought the mag, took it home and studied it for probably two months, getting familiar with the various players in the audiophile world. I remember among the editors' budget recommendations was a CD player from Rotel – the RCD-1072 – that was praised ...

Rotel RSP-1570 7.1 Processor/Preamplifier
The multi-functionality of any decent a/v receiver on the market today must be the most prominent and fundamental element when a consumer considers purchasing an a/v receiver for their living room or bedroom. Some consumers want a great 7.1 surround processor that will replicate the exact and precise DTS theater sound found at the local multiplex. But some others might want to purchase an a/v receiver that replicates the delicate nuances of pure stereo sound only, not wanting to listen to any surround mode whatsoever that would corrupt the pure audio that the original studio engineer that worked on the CD wanted to capture for prosperity. That kind of “audio purist” that puts 2-channel clear stereo sound ahead of the latest DTS surround mode when looking for a new a/v receiver is what Rotel’s sound engineers are always striving to ...

Rotel RSX-1550 AV Receiver
A cornerstone of any high-end audio manufacturer has to be the ability to continually research and look for ways of improving their design technology to stay one step ahead of their competition. Rotel, formed more than forty-six years ago, employs engineers that spend countless hours listening to various audio components to discern which companies to purchase their new circuitry from for installation in Rotel’s A/V receivers, DVD players and power amplifiers. This kind of authoritative dedication allowed Rotel to gain serious credibility with home theater stores worldwide and found their products being sought after. The Rotel RSX-1550 5-channel receiver is an excellent example of Rotel’s attention to advancing audio design with their patented Symmetrical Signal Trace design. This new technology keeps each audio channel’s signal path identical to the other audio channels, which increases the imaging of the audio to ...
