Rotel RCD-12 CD Player

Rotel RCD-12 CD Player

Sorry, This product is no longer available



The compact disc has been around for over 30 years, but Rotel's RCD-12 is a perfect example of how we're still finding new and more impressive ways of truly optimising and enhancing our CD music content. Similar to the rest of its 12-series siblings, the RCD-12's digital-to-analogue conversion process is done by the highly capable WM8740 DAC chip, integrated within the CD player itself. This DAC is normally found in much more expensive CD players, which makes the RCD-12 the perfect 'taster' of what you can expect from a CD player in a much higher price-bracket, as the RCD-12 is said to rival and match even the most impressive CD players.
As with most models in the 12 series from Rotel, the RCD-12 can be controlled via the buttons on the front panel of the unit and the unit's display - or you can control it with the included remote control handset. If you're lucky enough to have an RT-12 as well, then you can use the Rotel Link function of the two units and control the RCD-12 with the Rotel Remote app for iPhone/iPad.
