Upgraded MKII Models Deliver A Higher Level Of Acoustic Performance

Rotel continues to launch upgraded MKII models timed to its 60 year anniversary and we are pleased to introduce the newest additions to the Rotel lineup: the A12 MKII Integrated Amplifier and CD14 MKII CD Player.

The new models benefit from innovations and improvements to the circuit designs and enhancements to critical audio components, resulting in exceptional performance, improved accuracy and greater acoustic detail.

The soundstage of the new models delivers a wider and more genuine presentation of the music with increased depth and natural expression.

Both models feature a new, premium, Texas Instruments 32-bit DAC, power supply refinements, precision acoustic coupling capacitors, and circuit board layout isolation techniques that lower the noise floor and reduce distortion.

Available mid-late January 2022.
