Rotel A14MKII Integrated Amplifier 

A sleek, solid integrated amplifier

The Rotel A14MKII is an upgrade over the extremely popular original A14, if you can believe it. First, let’s make note of the great stuff that hasn’t changed: it still provides 80 watts of clean power to drive one or two pairs of speakers — thanks to a custom-designed toroidal power transformer — and a front-panel layout that’s easy to understand and operate. The solid array of analog and digital inputs and built-in Bluetooth for music streaming are still here, too.

Now for the changes. The MkII features a premium Texas Instruments 32-bit/384kHz DAC that converts incoming digital signals to analog with precision and clarity. And Rotel A14MKII can now decode audiophile-quality MQA and MQA Studio files. Improvements to the power supply and amplifier gain stages further refine this model’s already remarkable performance.

Convenient connections

The A14 features five analog RCA inputs on the back panel, including a phono stage for connecting a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge. Digital sources are well-served, too: there are dual optical and coaxial inputs, plus a USB Type-B for connecting a PC (Note: On the MkII, this port is not compatible with DSD files). A USB Type-A port on fhe front panel handles audio signals from an iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad®.

And there are a wealth of control options, including an IR input, RS-232 port, and dual 12-volt trigger outputs. A proprietary 3.5mm Rotel Link input/output allows connected Rotel products to communicate with each other and be controlled via the Rotel app for iPhone®. An Ethernet port lets you connect the amplifier to your home network for software updates and integration with third-party control systems.
