Rotel Audiophile Starter Kit

Being an audiophile is really a fun and somewhat universal hobby. After all, doesn’t virtually everybody on this little blue marble enjoy music in some form?


What I tend to see happen in the audiophile newbie world, is that people will at some point hear music on a quality sound system and realize what they have been missing and how nice it would be to listen to music at that high level of reproduction in their own abode.

For those not wanting to jump right in with both feet spending piles of cash, I have a recommendation for a reasonably priced entrée…

Rotel is a family-owned electronics company based in England that has been in business nearly 50 years. They have built a reputation for making good performing, well-built equipment at reasonable prices. Rotel has a new line of gear out that makes a great backbone for an entry-level audiophile system.

Let’s start with their RA-1520 integrated amplifier. The job of this unit is to control where the audio signal is coming from and going to, as well as powering the signal to your speakers. Rotel happens to have a splendid matching CD player to mate with this integrated amplifier, the RCD-1520. You can even connect a turntable to the RA-1520 should you have any old records lying around, or your mp3 player via a jack in the front panel.

Excellent sound quality, excellent build quality, excellent aesthetics…all at a reasonable price as each unit sells in the $900.00 range. Just add a quality pair of speakers and you are good for hours of aural enjoyment for years to come. Highly recommended!

I also sampled. It served me well for many years, and then it died. Repairs would have been time consuming and expensive, so I figured I'd just go ahead and upgrade. stereo amfi
