Rotel Unveils Astonishingly Compact Seven-Channel Digital Power Amplifier

  • 23 January, 2006 16:25

<p>Melbourne, VIC - December 2005 - The latest power amplifier from Rotel, globally accepted leader in value-high-end components for uncompromised audio and home theatre systems, breaks new ground for space-saving efficiency and innovative design. The new RMB-1077 power amp boasts a super-slim, rack-mount component just 70mm tall, while delivering no less than 700 watts - seven fully independent channels of 100W each. This unprecedented combination lends the new Rotel unbeatable appeal for high-performance, seven-channel power in custom-installation home theatres, or wherever super efficient, ultracompact, multi-channel power is required.</p>
<p>“With the RMB-1077 we’re looking at the future of audio amplifiers,” says Rotel America VP and General Manager Mike Bartlett. “Digital technologies and ‘smart’ power-supply design have finally evolved to the point where they can yield an amplifier that rivals and even outpaces the performance of traditional, brute-force, ‘copper-and-capacitors’ designs.”</p>
<p>Key to the remarkable new RMB-1077’s design are two proprietary technologies. Rotel’s Controlled Oscillation Modulation (COM) underpins entirely 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 a most impressive 90%.</p>
<p>The result is a seven-channel, 70mm tall power amplifier that is far less massive than many two-channel preamplifiers, yet offers a stable, dynamic, musical, full-bandwidth 100W from each channel. The RMB-1077 is ideal for all home-theatre configurations and with 12-volt trigger facilities for automated system integration and a detachable IEC standard power cord, the RMB-1077 integrates easily into any system.</p>
<p>The RMB-1077 will be available nationally.</p>

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
