ROTEL RA-12 INTEGRATED STEREO AMPLIFIER

The Amplifier has always been the heart of a hi-fi system, but for the new audio landscape, amplifiers need ‘brains’. The brain of the RA-12 is the Wolfson WM8740 24 bit/192kHz DAC, most often found in high-end audio products, and it ensures that the RA-12 Integrated Amp extracts the full potential from its digital and Apple® authorized USB inputs. Traditional audio is not forgotten however so the RA12 also provides four analogue line-level inputs and a phono input. The RA-12 can be controlled from its front panel buttons, via a remote handset, or via an RT-12 and the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad. The RA12 is however not just about versatility, it is a very high performance 60 Watts per channel stereo amplifier that puts music at the top of its priorities. Dimension: 17w x 3 5/8h x 13 1/2d in. Weight 18lbs. Available in Black or Silver.

ROTEL RSX-1562 HOME THEATER RECEIVER      RSX-1562 Brochure (pdf) 

The Rotel RSX-1562 Home Theater Reciever builds upon the excellence established by its highly acclaimed predecessor, the RSX-1560, but with the addition of new, improved circuitry and technologies such as HDMI® 1.4 with 3D. In addition, the advent of so many video sources such as a cable or satellite box, DVRs, DVD players, and WiFi or Ethernet audio / video feeds from devices such as Apple TV® and Roku® etc., have necessitated adding more HDMI inputs. The RSX1562 now has six HDMI 1.4 inputs and two HDMI 1.4 outputs, one with an Audio Return Channel (ARC). The ARC in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data “upstream” to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This 7.1 channel home theater receiver is also and EXCELLENT STEREO receiver with a downright incredible fm/am section to not be overlooked!  Come and listen to one today. Available in black or silver.

ROTEL RCD-1520 CD PLAYER

Rotel has produced a CD player that sets a new standard for the 21st century, taking full advantage of the vast wealth of music now available on compact discs. The RCD1520 utilizes a segmented power supply with a large toroidal transformer to minimize power supply “sag” and reduce hum emissions. All rectifiers, voltage regulation components and BHC low-ESR storage capacitors are carefully selected, not only for tight tolerance specifications, but in particular, for their sound quality. Both analog and digital circuits undergo this careful scrutiny. For the digital domain, we have specified the superb Wolfson DAC for advanced digital filtration and D/A conversion and Burr Brown low distortion op amplifiers. The CD transport is a high performance slot loading mechanism. The result of this attention to detail is a CD player that will remain a part of your reference audio system for years to come. Available in black or silver.

ROTEL RMB-1575 THEATER POWER AMPLIFIER

Larger listening environments require prodigious amounts of power to deliver room filling sound. That’s exactly what you get with Rotel’s 5 x 250 watt power amplifier. It is important to note that this specification is provided with “all channels driven at 8 ohms” unlike some other manufacturers who stretch the ratings by listing them at 6 ohms or with only one or two channels being driven. Rotel’s RMB-1575 is a true high current audiophile design and can double its output to 5 x 500 watts at 4 ohms with all channels driven. Pure muscle alone, however, does not make a superb amplifier. The Rotel RMB1575 excels at extracting all of the smallest audio details from both music and movie soundtracks alike. Best of all, even with its high power capability the RMB-1075 runs relatively cool, extending the components lifespan thanks to its innovative Class D design. Available in Black or Silver.
