We are very excited about the introduction of the X3 and X5 Michi amplifiers. The X3 and X5 are a natural extension of the ground-breaking work we have achieved with the relaunch of the Michi brand. These Integrated Amplifiers represent the best of Rotel and represent nearly six decades of engineering excellence, with products manufactured to the highest quality standards and offered with unsurpassed value.

Product Description

Rotel audio products are known worldwide for their quality, reliability, value, and, above all, exceptional sound reproduction. Since 1961, Rotel has utilized the resources of its formidable international design team and has manufactured its products in its own sophisticated production facilities. Rotel proudly offers a complete range of electronics that have consistently received critical acclaim and coveted industry awards. With substantial investment in new technologies and manufacturing, Rotel is prepared to meet the challenges of an evolving specialty electronics marketplace.

Michi products are engineered and built to the highest quality standards in a dedicated Michi factory in the Rotel manufacturing facility. The X3 and X5 proudly continue the legacy of nearly 60 years of audio engineering and design experience, assuring both models proudly wear the Michi name.

The Michi X3 and X5 build upon the established Michi formula of offering the best-in-class audio engineering, via the exhaustive, critical evaluation of every circuit, signal path and component in combination with the in-house development of key technologies and components.

The new integrated amplifiers also share the exceptional industrial design and finish of the recently launched P5, S5 and M8 models.

Michi M8 Model
The X5 Integrated amplifier is fully featured, supporting an array of 14 source inputs including Analog, Digital, XLR, PC-USB with DSD 2X decoding plus MQA rendering, Bluetooth with apt-X and AAC high quality wireless streaming and both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil Phono Stage. Digital to analog conversion utilizes an AKM 32 bit, 768KHz DAC, achieving meticulous accuracy and timing of the audio.

The X5 closely follows the architecture of the existing Michi P5/S5 pre/power combination and is similarly powered by dual in-house manufactured oversized toroidal transformers, allowing the X5 to deliver 600 Watts of output power into 4 ohms and 350 Watts to 8 ohm loads with near limitless, controlled, bass energy.

Michi X5 Model
Isolation of the power supplied to all sensitive circuits also eliminates unwanted noise and distortion, further refining the audio signature.

The front panel graphic display provides easy access to all setup options using the included custom designed signature Michi remote control. The display is configurable to show operating status, or a 12-band graphic EQ or a Peak Power Meter. The RS232 and Ethernet connection ensures simple integration with automation systems.

The X3 Integrated Amplifier delivers 350 Watts of robust power into 4 ohms and 200 Watts to 8 ohm loads, driven by a high-efficiency, oversized in-house manufactured toroidal transformer feeding independent analog, digital and power amplifier voltage regulator circuits for optimal power isolation.

Michi X3 Model

The X3 architecture is all about continuous, high-quality performance with all circuits designed to optimize the signal path to each of the 13 source inputs, including XLR, Analog, Digital, PC-USB, Bluetooth apt-X wireless streaming and a Moving Magnet Phono Stage.

Utilizing direct-path circuit topology, the X3 further isolates sensitive audio signals and processing from the high current amplification stage, lowering the noise floor and delivering an improved sound field.

The X3 high-resolution screen ensures quick setup of all features and multiple user-selectable configuration options of the run-time display. RS232 and Ethernet connectivity provide integration with all popular control systems.

“In the hierarchy of music system performance, a separate-component system is the way to go to achieve the top of the hi-fi pyramid, or so I thought until I tried the Michi X3 integrated amplifier. With a trick or two, the Michi X3 changed my opinion drastically and showed that an integrated component can also belong fair and square on the top of the hi-fi pyramid. Skillfully engineered with a seemingly cost-no-object mentality, the Michi X3 exhibits excellence by any standard in all aspects of sonic performance.”
