Rotel is a name that brings back memories of great amps like the RA820 and 30 of a few years ago. They were brilliant value for money and quite purist in their approach and today that still rings true
The current range is a lot more sophisticated in what it can do and how it looks.The sound quality is still there of course and could be summed up as effortlessly unbustable with great power and control.
We have the 10 series RDG1520 and RA1520 amplifier on permanent demonstration. The RDG or Rotel Digital Gateway is a cracking bit of kit offering a Fm, DAB and Internet radio alongside a Digital Streamer. so feel free to drop in for a look and a listen.Here's the blurb from Rotel
The RDG-1520 certainly opens the gate wide for all that streaming media can offer, plus it includes an FM/DAB radio and offers a USB input for direct digital connection of an iPod or other USB class 2 devices, bypassing the inexpensive analog output stage in favor of our Wolfson 24 bit/192kHz DAC and high-end analog stage. The receiver's tuner section includes terrestrial FM, DAB and Internet radio, plus premium music sources* like Pandora and SirriusXM, so your listening options are virtually limitless! There are presently over 15,000 Internet radio stations listed. In order to help keep favorite stations handy, the RCX-1500 includes 30 possible presets for instantaneous access to both FM and Internet broadcasts. The RDG-1520 streams music files from a PC using Windows Media Player 11 or 12 over a WiFi or wired LAN Ethernet connection. Supported codecs include RealAudio®, WMA, MP3, AAC & AAC+ (non DRM), AU, WAV and AIFF. - and don't forget it has Co-ax and Toslink digital input as well - now thta's what I call a digital gateway.
