Rotel T14 FM/DAB+ Tuner

|

Rotel T14 FM/DAB+ Tuner provides a huge variety of listening options as it is a DAB+ and FM tuner with a twist - DTS Play-Fi for internet streaming services!


Rotel is a Japanese, 50 year old family business dedicated to designing and manufacturing the finest affordable hifi and home cinema components available on the market. Note that Rotel manufactures core components as well as assembling them into complete products, and so has total control over quality and sound characteristics.

Audio product categories include integrated amplifiers, preamplifiers, power amplifiers, DAB tuners, and CD players. Home cinema products include AV receivers, AV processors and multi-channel power amplifiers.

While many hifi manufacturers have discontinued their tuner models, Rotel as a long-standing and traditional manufacturer of quality hifi recognise the demand and need for a quality tuner for the radio-listening music enthusiast. The T14 builds upon the high construction standard of its little brother, the T11, and sees the integration of higher quality materials and more functionality. 

The T14 bears little resemblance to those that have gone before.  While the T14 can receive classic analogue FM stations, it has also been designed to take advantage of Digital Audio Broadcasts (DAB+), as well as all popular Internet streaming services.

That’s a lot of options, but Rotel’s T14 makes selecting them as simple as the touch of a button. The 30 FM and DAB+ presets provide easy access to all of your favourite music stations. A near endless supply of music sources are supported by the T14 using the DTS Play-Fi iOS and Android Apps including Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Rhapsody, Amazon Music, Deezer and more.

Your listening options for radio broadcasts have never been more varied!

Unlike the majority of current tuners the T14 also has a RS232 connection on the rear panel that enables easier integration with multi-room audio system.
