Plenty of Power

My 25 year old amp died and so I bought this one. It is powering my new KLH speakers I bought from Crutchfield. The 80 watts is more then enough. I set it on 80 to listen to while I was outside and I was worried my neighbors might complain it was so thunderous. Inside I set it between about 56 and 72 depending on what I am listening to and how I want to listen. When I bought my amp in 1995 no one listened to records anymore, except of course me. And I had to buy a preamp to play records. So it was nice to have an amp that had a phono jack as well. The comeback of records surprised and pleased me. Have yet to check out the blue tooth capacity, but am looking forward to it.

Just What I Needed

This was to be my review of the Rotel A12, but after six weeks I was so pleased with it Crutchfield facilitated my upgrade to an A14. Effectively more power and an improved DAC being the advantages of the A14. Using the A14 in combination with a pair of B&W 606 S2 Anniversary Edition Speakers and a B&W ASW608 Sub-woofer. Appearance wise, the A14 is sleek, uncomplicated and unobtrusive. Whether you like the LED display is a subjective matter: it's large, bright and my fiftysomething year old eyes can read it from across the room. It displays a bare minimum of information and nothing more. If you want a modern aesthetic look elsewhere for it. Out of the box the A14 sounds clear, concise and accurate. The additional power over the A12 makes the B&W bookshelf speakers sound fuller at lower volumes. At louder volumes they sing. This is not a laidback, rock and roll type Integrated Amp - neither is it hyped or aggressive sounding. It's musical and detailed, but not antiseptic. Does that make sense? The phono preamp is very good - using a Pioneer PL-518 DD TT with an Ortofon 2M Red cartridge. A Rotel CD14 (excellent!) via RCA, but intend to swap in a COAX cable instead. A network attached AirPort Express (A1264, discontinued) to facilitate AirPlay via an Optical input and a legacy Technics M228X Cassette Deck for grins & giggles via RCA. The Bluetooth connectivity works as expected - as does the Network connection, but this is only useful to apply firmwa

Pros: Sound and Build Quality, Appearance, Ease of use

Cons: LED Display, Network connectivity is limited in usefulness

Great little stereo centerpiece

The Rotel A14 proved to be a little powerhouse. I tried it out with a set of MartinLogan Motion 20 floor-standing speakers, as well as a pair of ELAC Vela bookshelf speakers. In both cases, it delivered plenty of power and solid detail, even at low volume levels - great for apartment living. It has a sleek look, without being overbearing, and there are plenty of lighting adjustments I could make in terms of dimming the display and front-panel lights. I even liked the Bluetooth audio more than I thought I would. Another "pro" is the wide angle for the remote sensor; I stood way off axis many times (almost completely to the side in some cases), and the remote transmitted controls just fine. Some may feel it's a bit pricey, but if you're looking for a low-profile integrated amp with lots of connections and features and adequate power, it's tough to beat.

Quick shipping and excellent product. Just as expected ! Small thing but would have liked it if the original ROTEL box would have been doubleboxed.

Great Amp!!!

What a wonderful integrated amp!! The full, rich presentation through my Jamo 809's has been amazing. The soundstage is phenomenal - clean, clear, and accurate. You feel like you are right there at a private concert. :) I preferred Qobuz as my platform and it did not disappoint. I mostly connect via USB but, I also love the convenience, simplicity and ease of connectivity of the bluetooth feature. Just a great amp and great functionality....of course, it's what you expect from Rotel.
