New DVD Player From Rotel Print E-mail
Friday, 03 November 2000
Rotel, known as the manufacturer of high-performance audio gear that is also high-value, shifts its focus towards home theater-oriented products. The design concept is to keep the focus on Rotel’s historic audio quality first, with special emphasis on physical build quality and advanced circuitry. Michael Bartlett, Rotel’s v.p. and general manager, says, "The RDV-995 benefits from our track record in designing and producing award-winning CD players. In fact, some of us think of the RDV-995 as simply a very sophisticated CD and CD-R player that just happens to play DVD-V discs, too."

Digital-audio capability on the $899 RDV-995 includes high-speed, single-bit D/A converters with 24-bit/96-kHz resolution. Dolby Digital, DTS and PCM data streams are available at the coaxial digital output for use by a separate processor if desired. The analog output stage follows Rotel tradition with precision parts in a high-current configuration. The RVD-995’s switching power supply is fully isolated on its own circuit board and operates with any AC voltage from 100 to 250 (50 or 60 Hz).

High-current voltage regulators and low-ESR capacitors complete this critical circuit stage. A 10-bit, 27-MHz video D/A converter, augmented by "Video Fine" capability, processes video data for maximum resolution.
