“Don’t let the absence of an Atmos soundtrack on Bladerunner 2049 put you off. Its DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack has been masterfully crafted and sounds big, bold and detailed. Here the RMB-1585 produced the film’s dynamic passages with ease.
While the RMB-1585 did have a more effortless quality with the dynamics, the difference between my own Denon AVC-X8500H amps and Rotel’s RMB-1585 was less apparent. The RMB-1585 also sounded a little more ’forward’ than I am used too.
The same held true with Dunkirk’s excellent DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack. The Rotel showing that it was both firmly in control and able to drive my 4 and 6-ohm speakers with ease”
