Rotel CD14 Specifications

For nearly 30 years Rotel have made high performance cd players and their digital audio expertise shines on here. The CD14 begins with a carefully engineered power supply to ensure separate, ripple-free voltage and current to both digital and analogue circuits. It maintains the same clean lines and intuitive operation as the other 14 series models, while demonstrating an uncanny ability to resolve even the smallest musical details in a recording.

The CD format isn't going away anytime soon, and if you already own a sizable collection the CD14 will make all of your CDs sound their best.

Rotel's 14 Series Industrial Design

The Rotel CD14 CD Player has the same industrial design seen in Rotel’s other 14 series and incorporates a Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz DAC, coaxial digital and analogue outputs, and an impressive precision CD mechanism that reduces any unwanted vibrations.

App Control (when connected to A14)

When the Rotel CD14 is connected to a Rotel A14 integrated amplifier you can also utilise the A14 app to also control your CD14 using your smartphone device. The control app allows you to control most features of the CD14 and is compatible with iOS and Android devices.  The control App is available from the App Store or Google Play Store.

In 1989, Rotel confirmed its digital audio expertise with the launch of the RCD-855 CD player. The press was overwhelming in its praise, one critic going so far as to call it “The steal of the century”, and since then Rotel has never looked back.
