Rotel

CD11 Tribute

£369£499

A new addition to Loud & Clear and Rotel for 2021, the CD11 Tribute CD player – along with A11 – is one of the final two products designed and engineered by the late and legendary sound magician, Ken Ishiwata famed for his work with Marantz and laterally with Rotel.

CD11 Tribute is well built, matching the simple but elegant A11 aesthetically. It boasts a high-quality toroidal transformer fitted, eight key capacitor changes and one resistor change in the DAC stage (from the original CD11) and all nine power supply caps are improved, with some tweaks made to the analogue output section. Improved mechanical damping, custom vibration absorbing material fitted to eliminate vibration and ringing and changes to the mechanical and electrical grounding further improve performance. Well worth a listen for those still spinning silver discs.

Rotel A11 and CD11 Tribute

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.

Supporting RCA analogue 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.
