The amplifier has always been the heart of a hi-fi system but in the new audio landscape amplifiers need ‘brains’ too. The brain of the RA-12 is the Wolfson WM8740 24 bit/192kHz DAC, most often found in high-end audio products, and it ensures that the RA-12 extracts the full potential from its four S/PDIF digital inputs, an Apple® authorised USB input and wireless Bluetooth streaming.
Traditional audio is not forgotten however as the RA-12 also provides four analogue line-level inputs and a phono input. The RA-12 can be controlled from it's front panel buttons, via the included IR remote, or via the RT-12 using the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad.
The RA-12 is not just about versatility though; it's a high performance 60 Watts per channel amplifier that puts music at the top of it's priorities.
Bowers and Wilkins 685 s2 (With Stands)
At home on a stand, wall or bookshelf, the versatile 685 S2 is ideal for stereo and home theatre uses in most rooms. And performance is enhanced with the addition of a Decoupled Double Dome tweeter.
Even after three decades of the compact disc, the RCD-12 demonstrates that there is still more performance to be found from CD players. In common with its partners in the 12 Series, digital to analogue conversion is handled by the Wolfson WM8740 DAC chip. The WM8740 is more usually found in CD players at the very top of high-end audio and if you are ever intrigued to know just how your favourite CDs would sound on the world’s finest players, the RCD-12 will get you to within a hair’s breadth.
In common with other 12 Series products, the RCD-12 can be controlled through either its front panel buttons and display, via its remote control handset, or via Rotel Link to an RT-12 and the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad.
