Rotel/Project Turntable System 3
Brand Miranda Hi-Fi
The A12 integrated amplifier displays the same clean lines and intuitive operation as the A14 with output power rated at 60 Watts per channel RMS into 8 ohms. Rotel engineers begin their quest for uncompromising audio performance at the power supply. This is the heart of an amplifier and an area where considerable time and investment is spent.
Rotel manufactures its own toroidal transformers in-house to high tolerances using raw materials selected from proven, trusted suppliers. The result is a rugged power supply that won’t easily distort the music under dynamic conditions or with difficult speaker loads. With myriad inputs and a digital section designed around the luscious Wolfson 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converter, this amplifier offers all of the features you need in an amplifier and none of those you don’t..
Project Debut Carbon Esprit
Audiophile's most-wanted turntable. Now with a carbon fibre tonearm, DC power supply, acrylic platter and integrated electronic Speed Box.
The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford. The new Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed, as analogue is once again becoming the most respected source.
The biggest improvement is the inclusion of a carbon tube for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight for even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE damping) and an ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for greater speed stability without unwanted vibration. The full-width acrylic platter on the Esprit model is heavier than other materials, ensuring less resonances and a stunning design.
