Rotel RKB-850 8 Channel Power Amplifier (Black)




Rotel has been designing and manufacturing award-winning power amplifiers for over 50 years.That considerable expertise has now been applied to a new generation of rackmount custom installation amplifiers that are sure to set standards for performance, reliability, and ease of installation.


The amplifiers come in two eight-channel configurations at 8 x 50 watts and 8 x 100 watts RMS per channel into 8 ohms, all channels driven. All RKBs can double that output into 4 ohms as a result of their sophisticated, efficient Class D design. The amplifiers are rugged and extremely reliable, but Rotel has taken additional further precautions to maximize service life by utilizing dual thermostatically controlled fans to exhaust heat away from the output modules and power supply.


The Digital versions (Designated by a “D” in the nomenclature) feature four TOSlink digital inputs with individual stereo DACS for each pair of channels in addition to the four analog inputs. When a digital audio source is detected on the TOSlink input the unit will automatically switch to the digital input. If an analog input is connected, that source similarly will be detected. No user configuration is required. Each digital input supports up to 24 Bit/192 kHz LPCM audio.


Improved input linking. In the previous units, zones could only be linked from A. Now, a second input can source from any ‘upstream’ input - so B can source from A, C can source from B and D can source from C. You can create four individual stereo zones, two dual zones or three common zones plus an individual zone. In other words, two Sonos Connects (for instance) might be divided between kitchen and patio (A+B zones) and Master Bedroom and Bath (C+D).
