Rotel Unveils Compact Seven-Channel Power Amp  Print E-mail

The latest power amplifier from Rotel boasts space-saving efficiency and innovative design. The new RMB-1077 power amp is a slim, rack-mount component just over 2-inches tall, that delivers no less than 700 watts – seven fully independent channels of 100W each. This combination lends the new Rotel appeal for high-performance, seven-channel power in custom-installation home theaters, or wherever efficient, compact, multi-channel power is required.

Key to the RMB-1077’s design is two proprietary technologies. Rotel’s Controlled Oscillation Modulation (COM) adds new levels of efficiency, stability and effectiveness from a switching-type digital power supply, while Rotel’s Multivariable Enhanced Cascade Control (MECC) circuit topology creates a “smart” amplifier in which the power supply and the actual amplifying circuits work cooperatively to boost efficiency to 90%.

The result is a seven-channel, 2-1/2” tall power amplifier that is smaller than many two-channel preamplifiers, yet offers a stable, dynamic, full-bandwidth 100W from each channel. The RMB-1077 is recommended for all home-theater configurations and with 12-volt trigger facilities for automated system integration and a detachable IEC-standard power cord, the RMB is designed to integrate easily into any system.

The RMB-1077 is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2005, with a MSRP of $2,499.00.
