About the Rotel A12 MKII

Solid, reliable power for your stereo system

The original Rotel A12 was an excellent component, and the company has made some improvements that make the A12 MkII even better. First, let's make note of the great stuff that hasn't changed: it still provides 60 watts of clean power to drive one or two pairs of speakers — thanks to a custom-designed toroidal power transformer — and a front-panel layout that's easy to understand and operate. The solid array of analog and digital inputs and built-in Bluetooth for music streaming are still here, too.

Solid, reliable power for your stereo system

The original Rotel A12 was an excellent component, and the company has made some improvements that make the A12 MkII even better. First, let's make note of the great stuff that hasn't changed: it still provides 60 watts of clean power to drive one or two pairs of speakers — thanks to a custom-designed toroidal power transformer — and a front-panel layout that's easy to understand and operate. The solid array of analog and digital inputs and built-in Bluetooth for music streaming are still here, too. 

Now for the changes. The MkII features a premium Texas Instruments 32-bit/384kHz DAC that converts incoming digital signals to analog with precision and clarity. And it's now Roon-ready. Improvements to the amp's internal components further refine this model's already remarkable performance.

Convenient connections

The A12 has five analog RCA inputs on the back panel, including a phono stage for connecting a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge. Digital sources are well-served, too: there are dual optical and coaxial inputs, plus a USB Type-B port for connecting a PC. A USB Type-A port on front panel handles audio signals from an iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad®.

This amp offers a wealth of control options, including an IR input, RS-232 port, and dual 12-volt trigger outputs. A proprietary 3.5mm Rotel Link input/output allows connected Rotel products to communicate with each other and be controlled via the Rotel app for Apple iPhone®.
