  • Rotel A12 Mk II

    The A12 is a favoured work horse for systems where power control and flexibility is needed. At the heart of this amplifier is an over engineered toroidal transformer - a big chunky power supply designed to limit interference with other components within the chassis.

    Rotel is so renowned for making hefty power supplies, they sell them to other HiFi manufacturers.

    Included on this amp are digital connections like optical, coax and PC-USB, aptXTM Bluetooth and a Phono stage for turntable connection, making this a verastile unit for many Living Rooms. Use the optical connection to connect to a Television to dramatically improve TV sound quality or take this straight home with a pair of speakers and you're good to go with a quality Bluetooth connection.

    The MkII version has updated its Digital Circuitry to a Texas Instruments DAC chip. This has been more out of necessity because of the low stock of DAC chips world wide but the Texas Instruments has been a welcomed addition and is even an upgrade from the older Wolfson DAC.

  • This is not a Rotel CD Player ... this is a tribute ... the CD11, Black

    Rotel is one cool and dedicated family owned company with fantastic provenance and a continuous fifty year history of distribution in Australia. They make all their own components in house with meticulous attention to detail. Even their basic model A10 amplifier has hand wound OFC copper toroidal power supply and purpose made capacitors. Before he left us Mr Ishiwata has colluded with Rotel to rebuild two of their highest value A11 series components and thus we have the Rotel CD11 Tribute Compact Disc Player and A11 Tribute Amplifier.

    But there is a catch .... there is no surcharge ... making these the best Hi Fi value since ... the NAD 3020 amplifier of 1979 ...? StereoNet on the Rotel Tribute components

  • Rotel A11 Tribute Amplifier ... Ken Ishiwata's last stand

    Rotel know how to make an amp, for anyone who is a student of amplifier design in the same way that so many red blooded males are students of automobile engines looking at a Rotel amplifier with the cover off is an exercise of Hi Fi lust.

    This Ishiwata Tribute amplifier is the AMG version of the normal Rotel A11 ... but it's the same price ... fantastic ...

  • Rotel Michi X5 ... the irresistible force

    If this was an asteroid on its to hit the planet then it may well cause the extinction of the mammals. At 50kg it is one of the most massive single box amplifiers that I have ever encountered and is gorgeous.

    First encounter was playing it through a pair of Dynaudio Confidence 60 sourced by a Marantz SA10. Fresh out of the box the Michi X5 lacks the glare and oft harsh treble of many of the super amplifier designs without being salubrious like a Musical Fidelity X8i. It has needless to say terrific poise with no overhang or bloom on these critical speakers and an instant rendition of space that is immensely gratifying.

    I dived straight in with Patti Smith Horses and her raw proto punk seventies energy was immaculately recreated with this powerhouse running the system. 

    The amplifier is physically gorgeous, although some may find the black looks unsettling in use it is both tactile and entertaining. The new Michi Trademark display that suddenly illuminates in the panel is excellent fun.

  • Rotel RA-1572 MkII amplifier; A new version of an old favourite

    The RA1572 has become a mainstay on the demo floor at Carlton Audio Visual and the new RA1572 MkiII is stepping easily into its void.

    A solid and popular performer that pulls the punches when it's asked. With 120W into 4 Ohms and 200W into 8 Ohms of pure Class AB amplification, you'll get slam and control with this amp.

    Its connectivity and versatility is also its major strength. Aptx Bluetooth, phono stage (for direct compatibility with a Turntable), Unbalanced and Balanced XLR analogue inputs, multiple optical & coaxial digital connections and PC-USB with MQA and MQA studio (driver installation required) are some of your options.

    From the old RA1572, the major difference in the new unit is it's new DAC. Instead of the older AKM DAC chips they've moved to the Texas Instruments Burr-Brown DAC chips. Giving them the MQA capability but also some extra richness and expression in the music on the digital side of things.

    It keeps its classic ever-so-popular aesthetic with the retro lines and the same sound signature that Rotel are renowned for which we think is a good thing. A little tweak on an old favourite to make it that much better.

  • Rotel RA1592 MkII, New Version of an Old Favourite

    This new RA1592 MkII quite clearly shows its lineage in its aesthetic and its build. But there are a couple of things that have elevated the design to new levels.

    They now use the Burr-Brown or otherwise now known as Texas Instruments DAC chips as well as changing the internals up a bit as well with elements filtering down from Rotels new flagship Michi range. But for those who have always loved the curved retro lines of the 15 series, nothing has changed. 

    It also keeps its versatility in connectivity. Basically it has a connection for anything you can think of...APTX Bluetooth, 3 optical ins, 3 coaxial ins, PC-USB, USB on the front panel specifically for iOS, MM phono stage, headphone amplifier and Balanced and Unbalanced Analogue inputs.

    Its a convenient all-in-one box serious integrated amp.

    AND importantly it's a juicy amp with ever so much control and precision. And it's just gotten better and better. Commanding on the speakers yet a sweetness and expression to the sound that marks it above the lesser amps in Rotels range. 

    In store now for demonstration.

  • Rotel RB-1552 MkII stereo Power Amp

    Superb value for a power amplifier. Offering control and headroom as well as musical nuance and clarity. 

    This unit is built around the RB-1582Mk II but offers slightly less power at 130W per chanel (as opposed to 200W per chanel).

    For those who have some pre out options on a current integrated amplifier, this can be a wonderful, game changing upgrade to bring speakers alive. It can also be used in Home Theatre set ups to take the strain off your surround receiver. Let the RB-1552 MKII power your front left and right speakers and do most of the heavy lifting.

    Otherwise a pairing with a quality pre amplifier like the Rotel RC-1572 delivers exceptional musical quality. Taking the sensitive pre-amplifier circuitry away from the beefy power transformers of power amplifiers and putting them in separate chassis instantly takes the musical experience to the next level.

  • Rotel RC-1590 preamplifier, EX-DEMO, Black

    When the Rotel engineers in the Zuhai factory were asked to design a new top of the range pre amplifier they were given carte blanche to do whatever they liked to make it a reference product.

    So they ended up with this massively specified twin transformer fully isolated ultra low noise and balanced clean sheet design. The only thing missing is the commensurate price point, at $2999 list this is a bargain.

  • Rotel A10 integrated Amplifier ... the Walther PPK of Hi Fi ... Black fortnight ultra special

    This amplifier has been around for decades in one form or another, and like James Bond's favourite pocket accesory it is deeply functional, effective, well finished, long lasting, and hits the target for musicality vs price.

  • Rotel 1590 Pre and Power Amplifier ..The Hulk in an Iron Mask with velvet gloves

    In the end amplification is about electronics and physics ... the amplifier is the engine that drives your loudspeakers. It needs to make real amperage into a real reactive resistive load to proffer control over the electric motor that is a drive unit in the speaker and do so with the delicacy of modulation required to fulfill the demands of the musical signal so as to be realistically iterated to the listener.

    It dosn't matter how many watts the marketing department puts on the front panel of that colourfully boxed Surround Receiver, it is still going to sound rubbish when  music is actually played through it ...

    This Rotel combination weighs as much as a good 1000cc plus motorcycle engine, and has a similiar aim of power and control. 

    Unlike the internal combustion engine this will last a generation or two and is unlikely to require any maintanance.

  • Rotel CD14 MkII

    In 1989, Rotel confirmed its digital audio expertise with the launch of the RCD-855 CD player. The press was overwhelming in its praise, one critic going so far as to call it “The steal of the century”, and since then Rotel has never looked back.

    The new MkII version of the CD14 has changed the DAC from a Wolfson to a Texas Instruments DAC. The word on the grapevine is that this was only sparked by a shortage in availability of Wolfson DACs in a realigned DAC chip marketplace. The Mark II is surpringly similar to the original in sound and outward appearance.

  • Rotel RCD-1572 CD Player

    The RCD-1572 elevates performance by utilising a purpose designed and built CD mechanism along with other circuit refinements. One of the RCD-1572’s most important features is the Wolfson WM8740 digital filter/stereo digital-to-analog converter. Originally developed for high resolution sources, it is the product of extensive research and real world testing and processes digital signals up to 24-bits in length at sampling rates from 8 kHz to 192 kHz.

  • Rotel A14 MK II

    This unit is very similar to the previous generations the big difference being the change in DAC from an AKM to a Texas instruments DAC. This change has not surprisingly coincided with the large fire at the AKM factory in Japan that has decimated stocks of AKM parts.

    So reading between the lines, this was a change that was forced upon Rotel. Not that the Texas instruments DACs are bad or there's a decrease in performance. Just that, yes, they're slightly different. Rotel has held true to its sound signature though and tweeked things so they still sound fundamentally like Rotel.

    Who knows, maybe when AKM stocks become available again we'll have the 'A14 Revisited'
