The RA-985BX is a full featured, high performance component. All  
aspects of the design have been optimized to retain the full dy-  
namic range and subtle nuances of your music. The RA-985BX has  
a highly regulated power supply incorporating a Rotel custom-de-  
signed toroidal power transformer and custom-made slit foil ca-  
pacitors. This low impedance power supply has ample power  
reserves, which enables the RA-985BX to easily reproduce the  
most demanding audio signals. This type of design is more expen-  
sive to manufacture, but it is better for the music.

The printed circuit boards (PCB) are designed with Symmetrical  
Circuit Traces. This insures that the precise timing of the music is  
maintained and faithfully recreated. The RA-985BX circuitry uses  
metal film resistors and polystyrene or polypropylene capacitors  
in important signal paths. All aspects of this design have been ex-  
amined with the final goal being faithful reproduction of music.
