Rotel RT-12 in Test

For 750 euro Rotel offers a top processed network player with the RT-12 – but he can convince even? We do the test.

The “T” in the name already points out: Rotel RT-12 first and foremost as a universal receiver module has been designed for his current series of 12. So he also offers three ways to go on searching: about about the classic, RDS-enabled FM tuner.

In addition, he brings a DAB + – front end with – and the selection is now still too low, which can open up even the wide world of the Web radio is touch. This Rotel has established even your own service under our site, which is placed under the umbrella of the well-known Reciva platform. Here sender can be using the registration number queryable on RT-12 easily select, arrange and manage.

Rotel: Network via plugin

An interesting variant in terms of network access is the Streaming Board at the Rotel RT-12: both Ethernet dock LAN as well Wi-FI over little piggy-back boards, which first convert the signals to USB format. Via the controller module t 2046, it continue to finally cast in the noble Wolfson DAC chip world of 8740 back in the analog to be. Quite expensive: the output stage to the operational amplifier team Burr Brown 2604 and JRC 2068.

Because the Internet access requires already contact with the router and to the local network – which can be done at the RT-12 wired via Ethernet cable and wirelessly via Wi-FI, Rotel gave him even a UPnP-enabled network player. Which turned out to be but rather rudimentary: although it supports many audio formats including AIFF and FLAC – but only up to maxi time 48 kHz sampling rate. High resolution fit up to 24/192-format, the RT-12 only via the digital input is full.

The Rotel can not wait to also with interruption-free playback. And because he does not support AirPlay, he can not compensate. Outside left him also mobile USB devices like iPod & co. This is not understandable, he has but a corresponding USB-controller module on board, dragging with the capacity to do so.

Hearing test

It scored the RT-12 in the listening test with pleasing, warm sound patterns, which were free of any digital hardness. Also, what’s the musical flow, he gave himself totally relaxed and forced the tempo, not, not entered but also on the brake. The pleasantly smooth midrange, who invited to hours long listening to music – were his specialty and he is exactly the right player for long nights in the wide world of Web radio.
