Rotel is a brand you can trust in the Hi-Fi world and this amplifier lives up to the reputation at an affordable price. The amplifier has 4 inputs including a phono stage. The volume this unit can produce is good and I have used it with Mission speakers since I purchased the unit and it has never distorted or let me down for volume. The unit also has bass and treble controls as well as a tone control switch. There is a front mounted headphones output and there is a switch to control a second pair of speakers that can be connected in a separate room. The bad points are the lack of a remote control and that this unit needs a lot of space above it in any rack to allow cooling as even at low volumes the unit does heat up quickly. I have always loved this unit and over several years it has not let me down!
