    DB25?

    Maybe a dumb question, but I have no idea what exactly is the benefit/use of the DB25 (RS232), port on the back of some of the ROTEL products, like my RMB-1095.

    Anyone?

    The easiest way to find something lost around the house, is to buy a replacement.

    As long as people will accept crap, it will be financially profitable to dispense it.

    Older rotel surround processors also had the DB 25 port. You could connect your pre-amp processor to your power amp with that one cable instead of having a cable for each channel.

      The sound quality probably isn't as good, using the DB-25. I should check, I bet my OLD rsp-985 has a db-25 on the back.

        the RSP-980 does have the DB25 connection. Back then, it may have been the only way, as I dont' think you weren't given separate RCA connections on the RSP-980 pre-processor, and RB-985 amp.

        There's no real way this can be considered an advantage except for cord clutter. It's still unbalanced and in general, the quality of the wire isn't what you will get with high quality separate interconnects.
