What's the Deal with Rotel App Control and Rotel Link?
Rotel's latest generation of hi-fi components give you plenty of choice in how to control them. Their latest iOS apps and traditional Rotel Link connection allow responsive simple control. However, it is important to note that not all products are supported with every control method.
If you're unsure if the model you want is supported, get in touch and we should be able to set you on the right track.
Rotel 14 Series App
If you have one of the latest generation A14 amplifiers, then the 14 Series App could be very handy for you.

Integrating with the DTS Play-Fi App
Rotel's T14 tuner / streamer supports DTS Play-Fi, an industry standard for streaming audio and app control. It offers an excellent and modern interface and a wide range of streaming support.
If you use the
T14 with the A14 amplifier, you can control the A14 from within the DTS Play-Fi interface, which makes for a very smooth experience.
