Rotel Launches Three Amplifiers Under 90s Brand, Michi
Rotel has revived its iconic Michi brand from the mid-90s with three new amplifiers: the P5 Control Amplifier, S5 Stereo Amplifier and M8 Monoblock Amplifier. Available in the UK market, the Michi products offer exceptional audio performance wrapped up in a modern design.
Rotel admitted that the products took three years to develop as each component underwent exhaustive listening sessions by the engineering team. The bespoke components include custom oversized toroidal transformers mounted in dedicated, epoxy filled enclosures—all manufactured in-house to ensure minimal noise and vibration.
The P5 Control Amplifier is a Class A pre-amp with analog and digital source inputs including balanced input and output XLR’s, high-quality MM & MC phono stage inputs and apt-X Bluetooth wireless connection. The P5 features AKM 32-but DACs supported by 17 independent voltage regulators driven by two toroidal transformers with low ESR.
