LENC's Rotel A12 Overview:
As a multi-format user, I do not want to be limited by how I can play music. Sometimes it's vinyl, sometimes streaming, sometimes it's even a video clip on youtube - the A12 has the capability to cater for those scenarios and many more.
When I think of the A12 it reminds me a lot of my late grandfather “Noel”, a very multifaceted man. You could say he was a 'jack of all trades' but unlike how the rest of the saying goes, Noel typically mastered most tasks he put his hands to.
The A12, just like Noel with its multi-faceted talents masters the task it’s put to! - Nat
The A12 integrated amplifier displays the same clean lines and intuitive operation as the A14 with output power rated at 60 watts per channel RMS into 8 ohms.
Rotel engineers begin their quest for uncompromising audio performance at the power supply. This is the heart of an amplifier and an area where considerable time and investment is spent.
Rotel manufactures its own toroidal transformers in-house to high tolerances using raw materials selected from proven, trusted suppliers. The result is a rugged power supply that won’t easily distort the music under dynamic conditions or with difficult speaker loads.
Rotel’s A12 integrated amplifier offers impressive audio performance. Input connections include both analog and digital, along with aptX Bluetooth streaming capability.
Engineered with care.
Who's This Amp For?
The A12 is perfect if you have several source devices to hook-up such as a turntable, CD player, TV, Bluetooth ... the list goes on. Additionally, if you have lower impedance speakers such as 4 ohms that are a little hard to drive, the Rotel A12will be your new best friend.
- Plethora Of Inputs

Pair This With:
The Pro-Ject X1 turntable with Ortofon's 2m blue cartridge pairs amazingly with A12. Combing the smooth sound from the 2M blue with the A12's treble detail makes for a beautiful balance. As for speakers, the Monitor Audio Silver 100 bookshelf speakers with their awesome 8-inch woofer really benefit from the A12's dynamic range - when connected to the A12, you wouldn't be blamed for thinking they are a floor-standing speaker.
