Winner of the SoundStage! Network 'Reviewer's Choice' Award, the NEW Rotel Michi X5 Series 2 Integrated Amplifier receives its first review courtesy of Philip Beaudette, who offers his insight and praise on the 2nd generation amplifier.
"Vocals, piano, bass, and other instruments—everything was incredibly well delineated. The X5 S2 was also extraordinarily revealing, uncovering everything this recording had to offer. It was difficult not to stop what I was doing and focus on that sound; it commanded my attention."
"I can say unequivocally that Michi’s X5 S2 offers a lot for the money."
"With its power and premium parts and design, that the Michi X5 S2 sells for $8K has me shaking my head in disbelief. If you’re in the market for a high-powered integrated amplifier with a top-notch DAC and phono stage that rival standalone separates, the Michi X5 S2 is peerless."
