Tuned by audio legend, Ken Ishiwata
As one of the final projects that audio legend, Ken Ishiwata, worked on, this Rotel amplifier is a true tribute to one of the hi-fi greats. Featuring upgrades, including improved capacitors, to the pre-amp and volume stage, the A11 Tribute delivers improved precision and accuracy. Modifications to the damping in the casing reduces distortion, giving an even more lifelike sound.
An impressive starting point
As the basis for a tuning project, the Rotel A11 was always a great place to start. Developed from the higher specification A14, the A11 model has a custom designed toroidal power supply at its heart, for smooth, dynamic power. The discrete output stage uses quality components for low distortion. A built-in Burr-Brown DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) gives exceptional resolution from your Bluetooth streaming sources.
With a Bluetooth receiver built-in, you can stream music from your smartphone, tablet or other compatible device, wirelessly. Compatible with aptX and AAC, it’s a high quality device that lets you stream music to a high quality standard – perfect for premium versions of your favourite music streaming service.
As well as Bluetooth, the A11 Tribute has a wide range of wired connectivity. There’s a phono input for a turntable with MM (Moving Magnet) cartridge, four line level inputs and a pre output for adding a larger power amp. More unusually, there are also RS232, external remote and 12-volt trigger sockets, all of which lend themselves to multi-room home entertainment applications.
A wide range of features includes two sets of speaker outputs, dimmable display and a headphone socket.
Adjustable tone modes
As well as the usual bass and treble controls, the Rotel A11 tribute features dedicated tone modes. ‘Rotel Max’ is designed to help ‘fill out’ smaller speakers by offering a low frequency boost. If you’re using smaller speakers in a larger room, this can be a handy setting. ‘Rotel Boost’ delivers a unique blend of characteristics for a more forceful sound. It’s perfect for parties or any other time when you want your music to have more presence.
Built to Rotel’s high standards, the A11 Tribute is impressively solid. The clean, minimalist styling is timeless and matches a wide range of other components. Choose between black and silver for the best fit with your other hi-fi components.
Give your entire system a boost in quality, with the Rotel A11 Tribute.
