Official Factory Recertified Product

Sales Tax applicable for items shipped to MA, NY or CA.

Includes 1-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty

Item ships in factory recertified box, includes all accessories.

CD players have been around for over twenty-five years and
have enjoyed such a progression of quality that they can hardly be compared to
the original players released in 1982. Rotel has enjoyed a class leading reputation
with our CD player designs since the introduction of the landmark RCD-855 in
1990, pronounced by critic Lewis Lipnick from Stereophile magazine Vol.13, No.
7 as “The steal of the century!”

The RCD-1520 utilizes a segmented power supply with a large
toroidal transformer to minimize power supply “sag” and reduce hum emissions.
All rectifiers, voltage regulation components and BHC low-ESR storage
capacitors are carefully selected, not only for tight tolerance specifications,
but in particular, for their sound quality. Both analog and digital circuits
undergo this careful scrutiny.

For the digital domain, we have specified the superb Wolfson
DAC for advanced digital filtration and D/A conversion and Burr Brown low
distortion op amplifiers. The CD transport is a high performance slot loading
mechanism. The result of this attention to detail is a CD player that will
remain a part of your reference audio system for years to come.
