Rotel RDD-1580 DAC


At its heart, the RDD-1580 makes use of Wolfson’s extraordinary WM8740 stereo digital-to-analogue converter. But where competitive products use only one of these converters to handle two channels, the RDD-1580 uses two WM8740s in a complementary configuration that reduces noise and distortion well beyond that which a single converter can provide.


The carefully tuned analogue section is a perfect example of Rotel’s vaunted Balanced Design approach in which specifications alone do not dictate which internal parts are used. Rather, extensive listening tests under controlled conditions provide the final “ears-on” determination. After this, the entire circuit is tuned to extract the most sonically accurate signal possible.


Built with yesterday’s concern for stunning sound quality but designed for today’s increasingly complex digital world, the RDD-1580 offers a first rate combination of superior sonics and convenience.



  • Twin WM8740 DACs dedicated for the left and right channels
  • Dual DACs optimise audio playback by reducing channel crosstalk and minimise distortion while maintaining audio clarity
