Rotel announces the launch of 3 new and improved models. The award-winning A11 Tribute and CD11 Tribute, along with the A10 Integrated Amplifier, have all been upgraded to MKII status.
All three models benefit from upgrades to critical components and circuit topology to add extra resolution and detail while maintaining their critical price position.
The A11MKII and CD11MKII represent upgrades to Rotel’s hugely successful Tribute Series models which were inspired by—and co-operatively engineered with—the late Ken Ishiwata. The new products seek to enhance the performance of their predecessors while remaining faithful to Ken’s design philosophy and continue to proudly pay homage to Ishiwata san’s 40+ year legacy in the audio business.
“Since our beginning in 1961, Rotel has continually invested in product and technological innovations.”, says Peter Kao, Managing Director of Rotel and part of the 3rd Generation of the company’s original founding family. “As a family-owned business we are ideally placed to offer an unwavering personal commitment to always delivering high-performance and high-value products, all built to our exacting quality standards in our own dedicated manufacturing facility.”
