Rotel RC-850 stereo preamplifier - black :

High quality, low distortion stereo preamplifier with moving magnet and moving coil phono preamp stages

Classic Rotel early 90s layout - typical Rotel no frills design, black colour

This unit does not have the central balance control knob, we have added a substitute for appearance, but for balance function, please use the main or power amplifier controls where applicable

Well tested, I mainly used this preamp for MC phono and cd and PC music replay, where it proved dependable with typically high quality Rotel input level control
