Rotel Released The RA-6000 Amp And DT-6000 DAC
Japanese audio company Rotel launched the RA-6000 Integrated Amplifier.
As part of its 60-year Japanese heritage celebration, Rotel launched its Diamond Series RA-6000 integrated amplifier.
Furthermore, as part of its Diamond anniversary, the brand also released the DT-6000 DAC transport. It’s two birds, one stone for most Rotel fans. Here’s what you should expect from both of these launches.
The Rotel RA-6000 Integrated Amplifier
The RA-6000 delivers 350 watts of output power into 4-ohm speaker loads. According to Rotel, the RA-6000 takes a lot of influence from the brand’s Michi Series. You can see this in the circuit design, acoustic component selection, and power supply engineering methods.
It also comes with an array of source inputs, including a trio of coaxial, optical, and analog. Furthermore, you can expect balanced XLR, PC-USB supporting MQA with Apple users getting their iOS USB. Wireless fans can look forward to an aptX HD Bluetooth, and viny enthusiasts get a moving magnet phono stage.
The Rotel DT-6000 DAC Transport
It benefits from an eight-channel ESS Sabre ES9028PRO Digital to Analogue converter configured to dedicate four mono DACs each to the left and right channels.
An in-house manufactured, bespoke-shielded toroidal transformer powers the DT-6000. The transformer comes with high-efficiency slit foil smoothing capacitors that reduce stray emissions while delivering independent, isolated, low noise power to all critical circuits, further reducing noise and distortion.
You can expect a PC-USB input supporting MQA and DSD audio playback. It also supports PCM 32-bit/384kHz music files through the coaxial and optical inputs, while a tray-loading CD mechanism offers even more playback flexibility.
Prices Of The Rotel RA-6000 And DT-6000
The Diamond Series RA-6000 integrated retails at £3,999/ €4,499, and the DT-6000 DAC transport retails at £1,999/ €2,299. Both of them launch in July.
