Fully featured and comprehensively equipped this is a budget amp that tops things off with a revealing and taut sound that'll keep you listening ;

It doesn't have the greatest power reserves in the budget world and needs a fairly easy to drive speaker for best results ; The least expensive amplifier in Rotel's range, the RA01 is a distinctly slimline design but not one that's short on features....

The RA 01 is a great little amplifier that allows very high quality sound to be had for a very modest price.

ROTEL RA-01 Integrated Amplifiers

 

I was after a particular sound that I cannot describe because I do not seem to have the discerning ear that an audiophile should possess. I have tried NAD and Cambridge Audio products, but for some reason I could not attain the clarity I was looking...
