Rotel S14 Integrated Streamer

A stout toroidal transformer helps Rotel’s S14 make your streaming, digital, and analog sources sound great.

Streaming options

This streaming amp connects to your Wi-Fi network as either an AirPlay 2 or Chromecast built-in player. That means whether you’re streaming from online music services, a USB-connected computer, or a network-attached storage drive, the Rotel S14 will show up as a playback option.

And Rotel S14 works with Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect, which means you can connect to the S14 right from within those apps. It will also show up in your player list if you’re using Roon.

A smooth ride for your sources

Your streaming sources and components connected to the amp’s optical or coaxial digital inputs take advantage of the built-in ESS Sabre DAC. It can handle digital audio files up to 24-bit/384kHz resolution via the PC-USB input

And an RCA aux input lets you connect an analog source. If you’re like me and tend to discover new music online then really get to know it on vinyl, the obvious choice would be a turntable with a phono preamp.

Clean power under the hood

The Rotel S14 features a beefy toroidal transformer at the heart of its thoughtfully designed circuitry and construction. That means you’ll get fast, articulate, and powerful sound with a low noise-floor and a minimum of signal distortion.

And the amplifier is stable down to 4 ohms, for driving demanding, power-hungry speakers.
