Rotel has been designing and manufacturing CD players since the RCD-855 was launched in 1989 and has never looked back since.
Thus, the opportunity of engaging with audio legend Ken Ishiwata to create an even higher performance model of the successful CD11 was eagerly accepted by the Rotel design teams. With over 40 years of audio engineering experience Ken’s collaboration with Rotel created something truly special – the CD11 Tribute edition.
The CD11 Tribute includes critical changes to the power supply, DAC circuits and precise selection of components in the audio signal path delivering an increased sense of space, improved accuracy, detail, and genuineness of the audio.
Specifically eight capacitor changes and one resistor change were made in the DAC stage while in the power supply all nine capacitors were changed with improved components.
A great deal of thought was given to the damping of internal vibrations with custom damping material added to the top cover to eliminate vibration and ringing, while further changes were made to the mechanical and electrical grounding of the CD player.
Supporting RCA analog and coaxial digital outputs, front panel display and a remote control, the CD11 Tribute continues the proud tradition of Rotel and is reflective of the legacy of Ken and his tireless efforts delivering audio products preforming well beyond their price point.
Rotel CD11 Tribute CD Player
The CD11 Tribute is a great CD Player - especially in this updated special model with many new components to make it even more pleasing to the ear. It reproduces the origin music as it was intended to sound. Very Happy.
For me it was between the Rotel CD11 Tribute and the Marantz CD6007. Since I don't live in a capital city I couldn't audition either. In Australia, the Marantz is hugely overpriced (more than double the Rotel) whereas they're similarly priced in UK/EU. Love the Rotel, very musical straight out of the box. Looks like a solid build that I'll be able to enjoy for years. Sure, it doesn't have a USB port to be able to play digital files like the Marantz. What it does do is bring back the joy of browsing my cd collection and sitting down to listen to an album. Delivery took less than a week to regional Queensland. All up very pleased.
Well built and detailed sound. CHT Solutions no fuss transaction & prompt delivery. Thank you.
