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.
