Definitely a plus: the RCD 06 SE for 600 euro comes with the most stable chassis made of properly thick steel plate. That is why old Hifiisten not chalking on certainly his stressed simplicity him. There are the obvious repeat, random and scan as well as the possibility of programming a title sequence. Missing CD-text or any openness for all usual MP3 format, as already the Harman player offered, as well as the headphone jack of the Marantz.

Rather than such trivialities Rotel’s engineers sought rather to an increase in sound. Therefore they put a 1716 now a more modern world cup 8740 by Wolfson instead of Burr-Brown PCM Converter, which can at least theoretically more precise handling with larger amounts of bit and have slightly higher immunity gaps in the data sheet.

To do this they made a zealous tuning at the initial stages. As integrated building blocks of type GRANDPA work 2604, that is characterized due to field-effect – input solid state by high noise. The more popular small capacitors in the analog filter stages have replaced but now the Japanese by proud, once again loss poorer Styroflex noble films.

Even on the resistors they went ran, at crucial point-related, yet distortion poorer came in now from the UK.

In the Kleinelkos there was a reshuffle, and a lush primary care guarantee a neat line transformer and two prestigious Rubicon power storage with the 4700 micro Farad, all views that the RCD would excellent sound 06 SE was.

In any case, he gründelte almost with delight in the lower pitches around. Around however – compared to the player by Harman – not so much pressure and fullness, but increasingly also to look after the impulsive attack and contour.

Finally, the Rotel also the heights promised more light. Not so bright as the CD 6003 from Marantz, but so much that a clean pictured drums pelvic rocking, a vibraphone beautiful Elves nachzingern and soul could develop a voice. And also so much that the RCD should be 06 SE with 54 points and a pleasant journeyman in stereoplays test history.
