The RA-1520 is a music lover’s amplifier and is most at home as part of a stand-alone stereo system. Its muscular 2 x 60 watt design is based upon nearly 50 years of our expertise in audio engineering and it delivers all of the musical performance the artist intended. Subtle nuances and large dynamics are both rendered faithfully from digital or analog sources. The RA-1520 includes a moving magnet phono input to accommodate your vinyl collection.

The amplifier has always been the heart of a hi-fi system, but for the new audio landscape, amplifiers need ‘brains’. 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 digital and Apple® authorised USB inputs. Traditional audio is not forgotten however so the RA-12 also provides four analogue line-level inputs and a phono input. The RA-12 can be controlled from its front panel buttons, via a remote handset, or via an RT-12 and the Rotel Remote app for iPhone and iPad. The RA-12 is however not just about versatility, it is a very high performance 60 Watts per channel amplifier that puts music at the top of its priorities.
