Excerpt: In the world of hi-fi, more money doesn't always buy more features. This three-time winner doesn’t feature the rather useful digital inputs of the Audiolab 8200CD nor will it stream music from an iDevice like the Marantz CD6004 . What it does do, however, is play CDs better than any similarly priced player we’ve heard. That’s reason enough for us to give it an Award at this price level for the second year running.
Pros: Roksan Caspian M2, Combines refinement, bite and rhythmic ability better than anything else we’ve heard at this price level, sonic composure, excellent build
Cons: Roksan Caspian M2, Some may not like the revised looks
Excerpt: The Roksan Caspian integrated amp has been around in one form or another for almost 15 years. Over that time the design has been consistently developed to keep it challenging for class honours.
Pros: Roksan Caspian M2, A dynamic sound packed with detail, finesse and rich tonality, excellent build and finish, nice remote handset
Cons: Roksan Caspian M2, New look isn’t to everyone’s tastes
