”There’s a tangibility to voices and instruments that makes this an extremely engaging pairing to listen to for extended periods.” ’AV Forums’ – Highly Recommended. Tested with CD11 Tribute CD player.

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.

Wireless connectivity
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.

High connectivity
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.

Handy features
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.

Impressive design
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent unit. This is my first dabble in the more expensive side of stero equipment. Couldn't be happier with the unit. The Bluetooth feature is helpful in connecting to my TV and on occasion Spotify. Very happy. Also excellent service and the staff in store and over the telephone were very helpful.

Three settings for various listening sensations plus do it yourself bass and treble . The blue tooth is great love listening to 6 music on decent speakers! Thanks to the staff at Lichfield for their great recommendations loving my music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic amp & customer service. I’ve had this amp for about one month and can’t speak highly enough about it. The soundstage, detail and separation of instruments is fantastic. Must thank Dave(Liverpool store) for his knowledge and advice as it matches the rest of my components perfectly. Superb customer service as always, RicherSounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Sound Bought after in store demo in Southampton (vs Marantz PM6007 and Denon PMA-800NE), to replace an Onkyo A-9010. Sources: Onkyo C-7030, Marantz NA606, Rega Planar 1. Speakers: Monitor Audio Bronze 2. The Rotel just sounded right. It has all the detail you want at high frequencies, without sounding harsh. Mids are warm and voices sound natural . Bass is tight and fast, integrating well with the higher frequencies. It just allows you to enjoy the music, be it classical, jazz or pop. In a word, mellifluous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Musical! Only had the amp for a short while, but loving it! Bought it on the strength of a number of reviews, the great price at RicherSounds made it a no brainer. Every source I have put through it just sounds great, really enjoying listening to music again. The supplied remote provides control for all features, making for a relaxing experience - remote in one hand, Spotify on the phone to the unit via Bluetooth in the other. The remote includes controlling the matched Rotel CD11 CD player - which is also very good. Only comments are that there are no digital inputs, which is a bit of a surprise when the CD11 does have a digital output. It does not support Rotels own device Rotel Link function which again the CD11 can, but it does have the non proprietary Trigger Link for powering up/down linked devices Neither of these slight omissions really detract from a great sounding unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rotel A11 Tribute I had decided that I needed to update a rather ancient music system, I considered amps that would stream, download, and produce music from places that I can't be bothered to understand. But in the end decided that pushing a button and selecting my music from a cupboard was more suited to my requirements! A very patient Josh then helped me decide on my Rotel amp, tuner and CD player with Bowers and Wilkins speakers and a Pro-Ject deck. I am very pleased with the quality, and delighted with the fact that there are no passwords, concerns over download speeds, and connections that fail because the weather is bad. I have spent many hours cleaning vinyl that has been stored in the loft for over forty years, and I now wonder why I ever bothered to use CD's. Thanks to Josh and the rest of the team the items that I ordered arrived within 24 hours, carefully delivered by Adrian our local DPD driver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond my Expectations Having been out of the hifi circle for some considerable time, I felt now was the time to re acquaint my self with all the vinyl I had stored away. I reviewed a number of possibilities and then came across the Rotel A11 Tribute Amp. I had purchased a Rega Planar 1 plus and had connected it via a Denon Dm41 to my Dali Spektor 2 speakers. Although the connection proved to be an acceptable reproduction through the speakers I felt they needed to be “driven” more effectively and consistently. I visited Richer Sounds Solihull branch for a demonstration and at once decided that the A11 was the Amp to purchase. Once I connected the A11, it was obvious that I was now getting a much better representation. There was so much more clarity and depth to the sound, the speakers had come alive and the sound will only get better as the system beds in. I’d certainly recommend the Rotel A11 Tribute Amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service, great sound Helpful setup in Sheffield store to listen with pieces of equipment I already own (B&W 606 s2 speakers and tribute CD11). Great sound all put together, sounds as good at home as it did in the store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound signature. Perfect for a £1000 system. A great integrated amplifier at this price range. It's sound signature is more compelling than similarly priced Marantz PM6007, but it lacks the clarity of the more expensive Cambridge Audio amps. Rotel is just what I needed for an audio system around 1000 pounds and it rocks with Focal Chora 806 and a good DAC and a streamer. I bought it with great help of Tomasz in the Edinburgh's branch of Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement I bought the A11 to replace my old Rotel amp that has given great service since the early 90's. So far the A11 is perfect, the same warm sound I like, no fancy gadgets (except bluetooth which I haven't used yet or likely to). Build quality feels good and solid, makes our cd player look a bit plasticky. May have to invest in the Rotel CD to match. I think the term Old School would describe the amp well, but then so am I. Service and advise from RicherSounds Newcastle Branch great as usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much depth and clarity; so intuitive to use. I bought this at the start of January; a treat for myself as my family were older. (My first hi fi system a casualty of marriage and first small home). We had a “Kenwood - all in one box which sufficed for all the families needs. Jings on first power up this understated Rotel beauty brought back everything I had been missing; and more. No need for too many knobs this provides great sound separation and clarity from acoustic folk through orchestral to serious heavy metal. Low volume to high a real treat.
