A second A/V receiver, the RSX-1550, is a 7.1-channel design with 5 by 100 watts of class A/B power. It can be expanded with any of Rotel's two-channel or multi-channel power amps.

The RSP-1570 surround processor/preamplifier offers 4 HDMI 1.3 inputs, Faroudja 1080p processing, and multi-zone abilities in a 4.5-inch rack mount cabinet.

In the amp category, Rotel offers the RMB-1575, featuring 5 by 250 watts into 8 ohms of power in a rack-mountable format.

The RMB-1565 power amp packages 5 by 100 watts of Class D power, while a pair of new 2-channel class D models, the 2 by 250 watt RB-1572 and the 2 by 100 watt RB-1562, both in 3 inch form-factor can be added to upgrade power or adding channels.

The RMB-1512 features no less than (12) 100-watt channels in a single, 4.5- inch, rack-mountable cabinet. Installer-friendly features include input busing, front-panel attenuation controls for each channel, buffered link outputs that maintain signal integrity no matter how elaborate a system grows, and the inclusion of both heavy-duty 5-way speaker outputs and screw-terminals for custom wiring.

The two-channel RB-1510 offers two channels at 65 watts of class D power, and all of the RMD-1512 features in an ultra-slim rack-mountable case-perfect for adding rooms, zones, or channels as a system expands.
