New From ROTEL : MKII Integrated Amplifiers…

New MKII Models Leverage Rotel’s Michi Technology

Rotel’s award-winning integrated amplifiers have been upgraded to MKII versions. The new upgraded models include circuit design innovations and component level changes in key circuit locations, leveraging the design elements from the acclaimed Michi Series.

The A14MKII, RA-1572MKII and RA-1592MKII are the proud recipients of these acoustic upgrades and sonic improvements built from the Michi engineering efforts that were 3 years in the making.

The new MKII models offer MQA support, are Roon Tested for integration with a Roon system, and include improved DACs and new caps and resistors.
