In 1989, Rotel confirmed its digital audio expertise with the launch of the RCD-855 CD player. The press was overwhelming in its praise, one critic going so far as to call it “The steal of the century”, and since then Rotel has never looked back.

The CD14 MKII model includes acoustic and performance upgrades and innovations including enhancements to the power supply, printed circuit board and layout design isolation techniques and new acoustically tuned audio components resulting in a more accurate reproduction of the audio with richer and genuine detail. 

Premium 32-bit DAC

Critical Digital to Analogue conversion in the CD14MKII is managed by a premium Texas Instruments 32-bit DAC with custom tuned external analog output filters. The DAC digital and analog circuits are fed by independent voltage and current power supplies eliminating unwanted distortion and isolating motor controls from sensitive audio circuits further reducing noise and distortion. 

Output connections support RCA analog and coaxial digital allowing the CD14MKII to be utilised as a transport to an outboard DAC further optimising flexibility. 

Smooth Operator

The smooth action tray loading CD mechanism ensures easy loading of your favourite discs with an intuitive IR remote control, front panel control buttons and a graphic display packaged in an efficiently sized 80mm (3 inches) chassis for seamless operation and the ultimate in convenience. The RS232, 12V trigger and IR remote input provide the ultimate installation flexibility including integration with popular control systems. 

Bring your CD collection and allow the CD14MKII to showcase your music collection both old and new with stunning detail, clarity and exceptional accuracy.
