British hi-fi brand Roksan is returning to the Australian market with a new range of amplifiers and CD players.
Rocksan was founded in 1985 but was acquired by Monitor Audio in 2016.
The brand has now released two new ranges of amplifiers and CD players.
The flagship Blak range is designed to satisfy “dedicated and devoted music lovers and those who simply demand the best”, according to the company.
The range includes the Blak Integrated Amplifier ($6999) and Blak CD Player ($5999).
The amplifier includes 3 RCA line inputs, 1 XLR input, Moving Magnet Phono input, PC-USB input with built-in DAC and aptX Bluetooth for high-res wireless audio.
Roksan claims a power output up to 150 watts per channel into 8ohms.
The Blak CD Player uses an isolated disc mechanism to reduce vibration and minimise playback errors with RCA and XLR outputs.
Roksan claims a “high-quality standard” DAC chipset without going into further detail, but the player includes three digital outputs (XLR, optical and coaxial) to allow the CD player to act as a transport if listeners aren’t satisfied with the on board DAC.
For more budget conscious audiophiles, Roksan offers the more affordable K3 series.
The K3 amplifier ($3299) pushes 140 watts per channel at 8ohms, with support for 5 RCA inputs and a Moving Magnet phono, as well as Bluetooth aptX.
The accompanying K3 CD Di player ($2999) uses a PCM1798 DAC good for 24-bit/192kHz, with output via analog RCA.
Like the more expensive player, the K3 model also has three digital outputs: optical, 75ohm coaxial and 110ohm balanced gold plated XLR.
Users can also input up to two external digital audio sources to use the built-in DAC via coaxial and optical inputs.
The new range of Roksan products are now available in Australia, distributed by Interdyn.
