The heart of the RC-1590MKII begins with the power supply featuring dual in-house manufacture toroidal transformers. The transformers are physically and electrically isolated supplying dedicated analog and digital supply voltages to all critical circuits through low ESR slit-foil capacitors eliminating unwanted distortion and an extremely low noise floor.
 
Digital source inputs are processed utilizing an audiophile grade Texas Instruments 32-bit/384kHz Digital to Audio Converter (DAC) with custom engineered, proprietary acoustically tuned external output filter circuits rendering even the finest details with exceptional clarity and exact positing.
Analog signal paths feature DIRECT-PATH bypass modes eliminating unnecessary circuits maintaining signal integrity and further eliminating unwanted noise and distortion drawing you even closer and immersing you in the music.

Superb Pre Amp

Have been running this pre amp for several weeks with no problems. I love the vast option for inputs and the balanced input and output is just great.

Truly 5 Star!
