    Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.

    I picked this about 2 years ago. I use for a variety of reason (listen to music, watch tv, watch movies). I have it hooked up to my B&W CM10 towers by bi-wiring the speakers. I can't even begin to describe how well this amp has treated me. It is absolutely amazing. I can crank the volume up while holding the sound quality of anything I am doing. The best is when I lower the volume, the quality remains no matter what. If you're buying anything 2 channel from magnolia, it is worth investing in this 2 channel amp as it is the best for its price! I did have one incident after owning it for 13 months. I sent it to rotel, and in about 3 weeks it was back at my house. Still running wonderfully. I would purchase again if I needed too. Highly highly highly recommend over the other amps best buy sells such as the Yamaha, Denon, etc.

    Great clarity and a beautiful DAC with the power to back it up! The pre/outs work great and the BT connection is strong and clean! Powers my Bose 601 IV’s, Bose 301 ii, B&W 607’s, B&W 606 S2, and my collection of Klipsch speakers beautifully!

    Great Integrated Amp

    The A12 has a clean, neutral sound and enough power for any moderate to high sensitivity speaker. The Bluetooth input allows me to play CD quality music from my phone or tablet. My favorite feature is a USB input I can use to stream hi-res music from my MacBook Pro. This eliminates the need to buy a streaming device for hi-res music. It also has inputs for a streamer, turntable, CD player or many other devices. The quality and input options are tough to match at this price.

    Great little amplifier for smaller systems

    |
    Posted .

    I would limit the use of this amplifier to smaller room/bookshelf applications. It provides great frequency response; you really hear the highs and the lows pretty well. I'm sure the more expensive and more powerful Rotel amplifiers would do a better job with much larger power hungry speakers, but for my use powering two BW 707s it's perfect. The bluetooth connectivity is a great plus, too. I got it open box for $549. What a deal!

    Crystal Clear!

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    The sound I get from this amp is absolutely crystal clear at any volume! I have yet to get any distortion from this amp. It also has just about any connection you will ever need. The only drawback I have experienced is my fault.... It is paired with a pair of Dynaudio Excite X14's which aren't very efficient speakers (85dB); and this amp is only 60watts rms - so I have to turn the volume up to get the loudness I desire sometimes. Even so, I am greatly pleased with this amp; but if you have the extra money, get the A14 at 80watts.

    Buying this unit was a great addition to my stand-a-lone audio setup. The clarity and additional power this unit provides was the best value for my high end theater B&W sound system. I would recommend this unit if you need additional power at a good value.

    I wanted something to wirelessly send music from my laptop to a receiver in my garage where I spend a lot of time. Steve Habhab at Best Buy at the Southfield store recommended the Rotel Ra-12 amplifier and I couldn't be happier. I also needed a pair of bookshelf speakers. Steve also recommended Bowers & Wilkins. I have B&W column speakers in my living and B&W center channel too. All from Best Buy! Thank you Steve! .... I

    Great match for B&W Speakers

    Posted .

    The Rotel quality is exactly what I was looking for to pair with my B&W speakers. I like the idea of separate components for a music only systems. Should I choose to add on components, such as amps, CD players, etc. I'm confident I can build onto the A12 with any Rotel product.

    Rotel A-12

    This integrated amp (no am/fm tuner) does what it's supposed to. Reproduce music the way the artist recorded it without distortion. I expect Rotel will exceed their reputation for high end quality and longevity at an affordable price for many.
