The RA-12 is somewhat a “all-in-one” machine. Its firstly an integrated amp with 60W per channel, has an on board Wolfson 24 bit/192 KHz DAC (which happens to be a very good DAC) for your digital sources, USB and bluetooth (bluetooth dongle, not included here, is required) connectivity, moving magnet phono input and if you want more power in your system, you can use the RA-12 as a preamp to be partnered with a higher power amp. Sonically, the RA-12 is a pretty good integrated amp. Reminds us of the Rotel of old when it was heavily skewed towards the warm British sound except now, the RA-12 has better detail and a cleaner, clearer sound. In a carefully arranged system, the RA-12 can easily be the unabashed engine that will have people thinking they were listening to something far more expensive.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Minor scuff marks from use but nothing major. We have the original remote and the manual is available online. Unit will be securely packed for safe shipping.
