Rotel A12 Integrated Amplifier


Rotel’s A12 Integrated Amplifier

The A12 integrated amplifier has clean lines and intuitive operation with output power rated at 60 Watts per channel RMS into 8 ohms. Rotel engineers begin their quest for uncompromising audio performance at the power supply. This is the heart of an amplifier and an area where considerable time and investment is spent.

Rotel is a family owned business founded in Japan over 50 years ago.They pride themselves in the fact that they make many of the parts in their amplifiers in-house.They make their own toroidal transformers which are the heart of any amplifier and provide the means to their amplifiers delivering dynamic music reproduction.The same goes for the rest of their component range - wherever possible they design and manufacture in-house as much of the product as is feasible.

 The result is a rugged power supply that won’t easily distort the music under dynamic conditions or with difficult speaker loads. With myriad inputs and a digital section designed around the luscious Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter, this amplifier offers all of the features you need including AptX Bluetooth for wireless music streaming from your Smartphone.

The Rotel A12 is a hugely pleasing integrated amplifier. One of the crop of modern integrated amplifiers with a very capable internal DAC and Bluetooth connectivity, it’s ready to support virtually any source you might choose, even an mm phono cartridge, which sounds utterly delightful. With power a-plenty to drive most of the speakers you’d likely partner to, it’s a superb choice for an audio system. While it is appreciated for its long list of features, what really impresses  is its sweet, musical sound which encourages long listening sessions.
