Tokyo Japan, August 15th, 2019: For more than 60 years Rotel has demonstrated a total commitment to product quality and performance, which extends to the company custom designing and manufacturing all Rotel products in-house. That commitment has been officially recognised on numerous occasions, which now includes the A11 Integrated Amplifier winning the EISA (Expert Imaging and Sound Association) Award for Best Buy Amplifier of the Year 2019-20.
The EISA Awards have been selecting the very best sound and imaging products for over 35 years and are unique in being judged by the largest collaboration of consumer electronics technical specialists in the world from 55 expert magazines representing 29 countries across the globe.
EISA will officially present the 2019-20 winners with their awards during the Berlin IFA Show –the world’s largest consumer electronics fair, 6th – 10th September 2019.
Peter Kao, Managing Director of Rotel said:
Our Balanced Design Concept and the in-house manufacturing of bespoke audio products has continually paid dividends across all models and product ranges and in particular it allows products like the A11 to offer performance far beyond its modest price point. I’m delighted that the expert judges at the prestigious EISA Awards agree.
In a tradition shared with all Rotel Hi-Fi components, the A11 utilises a custom-designed oversized toroidal transformer using steel and copper raw materials sourced only from proven, trusted suppliers. This powers classic Rotel Class AB amplification rated at 50 Watts per channel (20Hz to 20kHz into 8 ohms, both channels).
In addition to its superb performance, the A11 amplifier also offers an impressive specification including an integrated Bluetooth receiver supporting both aptX and AAC for high-quality, wireless audio streaming. In addition, the A11 includes a Moving Magnet Phono Stage input for vinyl lovers and 4 RCA analogue source inputs to ensure connectivity to all popular Hi-Fi equipment.
Commenting on the A11’s winning performance, the EISA judges said:

In a history stretching back almost 60 years, affordable amplifiers without frills but packing lots of performance have been central to the Rotel story. The A11 is the latest in this illustrious line – and it’s an absolute bargain. Built around the classic Rotel Class AB amplifier design, it’s rated at 50W per channel, and has a sensible array of inputs for the modern user. It will accommodate four line sources, moving-magnet phono for a turntable, and aptX Bluetooth for wireless streaming from portable devices. Add in the sound quality made possible by careful design and the use of custom Rotel components, and you have an extremely attractive music-first integrated amplifier.
