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 design begins with a carefully engineered power supply to ensure separate, ripple-free voltage and current to both digital and analogue circuits. It maintains the same clean lines and intuitive operation as Rotel’s other models, while demonstrating an uncanny ability to resolve even the smallest musical details in a recording.
The CD14 is Rotel’s middle CD Player and, naturally, has all the essentials a good disc player needs. The CD14 is a versatile CD player featuring a high quality Wolfson digital to analogue converter (DAC), to convert the digital information stored on a CD into an analogue sound signal. As well as regular audio CDs, the CD14 will play MP3’s files from home recorded CD-R discs. There's also a dedicated digital output which allows you to record from a CD to a digital format or even connect to a standalone DAC or the DAC in a Rotel amplifier when you're ready to improve your sound even further. With a multi-function display screen, this sleek looking CD Player is housed in a substantial chassis which sports a stylish thick metal front panel which looks great in any interior.
The Sound You Need
Simply stated, the CD14 is designed to do one thing - deliver the most detailed, nuanced sound from every disc. The CD14 will faithfully reproduce all that is recorded on the disc. While the unit was under development, the design team went far beyond the usual measurable technical performance characteristics. Listening panels spent hundreds of hours fine tuning the audio performance, choosing the components that produced the best sound that would “release the emotion in the music”. Whatever the artist and recording engineers put on the disc, the CD14 will deliver.
That said, the CD14 does feature some impressive hardware. The digital-to-analogue converter is a state of the art DAC from the world renowned British manufacturer, Wolfson. This very high performance stereo DAC is specifically designed for audio applications such as CD, DVD, and home theatre systems. All this, combined with Rotel’s Balanced Design, ensures the CD14 will deliver the highest level of audio performance. When used in a high quality audio system, your Rotel CD player will provide years of enjoyment.
