Lightbulb Rotel Michi

I wasn’t sure where to start this thread, but Rotel being made in China this seemed fitting.

Has anyone had a chance to get their hands on the new Michi yet?

Rotel is really moving up the price curve with this line.

I like the look of the gear in general but not a huge fan of the front panel meter/graphic. I would prefer a cleaner look but I guess they need something to stand out.

My dealer in Indianapolis has Michi. I've heard the pre-amp, stereo amp and mono blocks. They are quite good and impressive to look at. It needed quite a bit of break-in before sounding its best, then it became very smooth and detailed. Rotel has used this name (Michi) before and always for their best efforts as a high end brand. Huge performance for a reasonable price!!!

The meter graphic can be changed or turned off.

Got very good reviews so far over here (The Netherlands, Germany).
The DAC of the pre was highly praised.

Rotel was a stepping stone for me into mid-fi that lead me to McIntosh. My local dealer carried both brands. I was always pleased with my Rotel gear.

Is there at least a theoretical chance of a new Michi cd-player?

Far cry from when I wanted an RA1062 badly and thought 700 was a crazy amount of money
