RA-03 stereo amplifier features audiophile sound quality, thanks to Rotel’s Balanced Design Concept

  • 23 January, 2006 16:19

<p>Melbourne, VIC - December 2005 – Rotel has established an enviable reputation for the audiophile performance of its amplifiers, currently highlighted in the 02 Series line-up by the RA-01, RA-02 and RB-03. The RA-03 looks to expand upon the 02 Series success. The pre-amplifier section of the RA-03 is based on the multi award winning RA-02, which is combined with the power amplifier section of the critically acclaimed RB-03 power amplifier.</p>
<p>Rotel Electronics is a family-owned company headquartered in Japan that has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing high-performance, high-quality audio and video components for more than four decades. The company’s Balanced Design Concept - a disciplined synthesis of physics, electronics, and mechanical engineering - is evident in each component that is manufactured and distributed throughout the world.</p>
<p>As with all Rotel amplifier designs the circuit board layout employs techniques critical to achieve audiophile sound quality, utilizing components selected for both their technical and sonic qualities.</p>
<p>- Separate ground paths for both signal routing and power supplies which incorporate copper busbars for high current sections.</p>
<p>-Component selection has again been given great care and attention. The RA-03 features newly sourced American made low noise-resistors. The line stage op-amp and the op-amp that buffers the input stages from the line stage are also new Burr Brown devices.</p>
<p>- The output stages feature electronic protection circuits that automatically shut the amplifier down in the event of overheating or improper speaker cable connections.</p>
<p>- A purpose designed, Rotel built toroidal transformer is complimented by British designed and built slit foil capacitors to provide the power supply of the RA-03.</p>
<p>-The RA-03 comes with a 02-Series “complete system” remote control</p>
<p>The result: Superior resolution, a wider aural frequency range, deeper, more realistic bass and a big sound stage.</p>
<p>The RA-03 will be available nationally.</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
