Rotel’s Stereo Receiver Isn’t Afraid of the Future


Rotel's stereo amplifier not only handles CDs and terrestrial radio stations, but also plays digital music from just about any source.

One box to play it all — CDs, radio, internet streams, iPhone audio, USB sticks, and lossless streams over Wi-Fi. Digital sources benefit from the Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz DAC. Surprisingly easy to set up and use. Austere design has plenty of Euro charm

Slot-load CD player is slow to start and makes unsettling mechanical crunching sounds. Simple, 4-line digital display on the front feels like the ’90s. The price is high, even though you get a lot for your money
