The RCX-1500 is an Absolute Sound recommended component. And no surprises there. It is feature packed and actually sounded really good too. It has almost everything to satisfy the “modern day” audiophile with its Wi-Fi capability, Ethernet connectivity, USB input, Bluetooth capability, FM and DAB radio and last but not least, CD playback for those that are still “old school” and prefers inserting a disc. With 100W per channel available, its powerful enough to drive most speakers. We tried it with KEF, Avalon and B&W speakers with satisfying results on all counts. It was punchy in the bass, warm and smooth in the mids and detailed in the highs without sounding too overbearing. Add a clean cut, modernistic look and there is really nothing to pick about (we picked this up from a fancy Manhattan apartment). All-in-all, this is an all-in-one package that proved to be very satisfying to live with.
Cosmetically, the unit is in great shape. Minor signs of use but nothing major. We have the original manual (important for setting up) and accessories. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
