Rotel Upgrades Popular Stereo Integrated Amp

Rotel introduces an Upgrade Popular Stereo Integrated Amp.

North Reading, MA -January 2004 -Rotel's cost -effective stereo integrated amplifiers have long been favored by serious music lovers and audio fans alike for their deft musical reproduction and sensible high -value. Rotel's latest integrated amp, the 60 -watts -per -channel RA -1062, carries on this tradition proudly, with new internal components and refined design. Consequently, the RA -1062 offers a highly affordable and simple one -component amplification solution for musical integrity, stereo imaging, and fast, powerfully detailed dynamics which rivals separate pre - and power -amplifier combos costing many times more.

`Integrated amplifiers are a bit of a 'heritage' product for Rotel,` says Rotel America V.P. & General Manager Michael Bartlett. `And Rotel has always maintained its position in this area with extremely high -quality components. The RA -1062 was acknowledged recently by a leading British audio magazine as `Amplifier of the Year,` and we take great pride in introducing it now to the USA market and in setting the world standard for audiophile sonics at rational value in this category. The RA -1062 solidifies our position with musicality and definition that exceeds the demands of today's best high -resolution recordings.`

The RA -1062 is a direct descendant of Rotel's long -standing RA -1060, and, as with its predecessor, the foundation of its `Balanced Design` concept is an extremely capable power supply. In the RA -1062's case, this means a bifurcated supply with independent high -current `main` and strictly regulated `subsidiary` sections that serve power -amp and line -/phono -stages with optimized voltage and current, drawing on a specialized Rotel -designed, Rotel -made high -output toroidal transformer.

The new amplifier also features `T -network` capacitors -an advance on slit -foil caps
that maintain almost perfect isolation of input and output currents for important reductions of inherent distortions and for important gains in small -signal detail and dynamic finesse.

Along with the uprating of all other signal -critical components to instrument -grade devices, this propels the RA -1062's sonics to a higher level than even its award -winning predecessor.

The RA -1062 also boasts important functional additions. A refined moving -magnet phonograph preamp is now on board in addition to input -circuit balance control and audiophile -grade metal multiway speaker terminals. Five line -level inputs, a 12 -volt trigger, and a remote -IR input, along with A/B speaker switching and a front -panel headphone output ensure that this component will easily meet the integration needs of any system, while its simple, intuitive, full -function remote control and supplied handset ensure satisfying convenience.

Rotel Electronics is a family -owned company headquartered in Japan that has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing high -performance, high -quality audio and video components for more than four decades. The company's Balanced Design Concept -a disciplined synthesis of physics, electronics, and mechanical engineering is evident in each component that is manufactured and distributed throughout the world.
