ROTEL A11 AMPLIFIER AND CD11 CD PLAYER DEBUTS AT ISE 2019
Rotel has just announced a pair of affordable, no compromise Hi-Fi audio components at ISE 2019. Please welcome the A11 Stereo Integrated Amplifier and CD11 CD Player.
The new A11 Stereo Integrated Amplifier and the CD11 CD Player have launched at ISE 2019. These latest additions to the popular and hugely successful Rotel 14 Series line-up deliver cost-efficient but no compromise designs.
Both models feature the same styling cues and make natural partners for both their looks and synergistic sound.
The CD11’s internal architecture was designed using the experience gained by the company since it released its first CD player back in 1989.
Firstly, there is a Texas Instruments 24-bit 192kHz DAC employed for the Digital to Analog conversion. Audio output is available via an RCA analogue connection, and a coaxial digital connection for installation flexibility.
The A11 amplifier includes an integrated Bluetooth receiver offering support for both aptX and AAC, guaranteeing CD-quality wireless audio streaming.
Additionally, the A11 includes a Moving Magnet phono stage input for vinyl lovers and 4 RCA analogue source inputs to ensure connectivity to all your favourite Hi-Fi equipment.
Naturally, as is the tradition for Rotel, the A11 features a custom designed, in-house factory built, oversized toroidal transformer. Here the unit delivers 50 Watts per channel of Class AB output power (20Hz – 20kHz, 8 Ohms, both channels) to dual relay-controlled A-B speaker 5-way output binding posts.
Peter Kao, Managing Director of Rotel, tells StereoNET:
Rotel has long been a recognised leader in the affordable, high-performance audio space. These 2 new models continue our mission of offering performance well beyond the modest price point by leveraging our Balanced Design Concept throughout the entire engineering, testing and manufacturing processes, all contained in our own dedicated 10,000 square meter (100,000 square foot) factory.
The A11 and CD11 include 12V trigger connections and a bidirectional RS232 control interface for integration with a wide range of control systems, plus a detachable IEC power cord, front panel graphic display, IR remote controls and an array of features and functions for ease of installation and operation.
