Rotel RCD-1572 review

Rotel has built its business on solidly performing, functional-looking equipment. The new RCD-1572 conforms to type – and that’s no bad thing.

The arrival of new CD players has slowed to a trickle, so when we come across one as capable as this one, we’re pretty pleased.

Build and features

Take the RCD-1572 out of its packaging and it impresses. The casework feels substantial, while fit and finish are well up to class standards. We particularly like the crisp feel of the small, domed control buttons on the front panel.

The display is usefully large too, though can look a little cluttered. At least CD text is on the menu, so you know the title of the track you’re listening to without having to check the CD case.

The only thing we don’t like is the player’s flimsy loading drawer – it feels straight out of a budget DVD player. At this price we expect better.
