Summary: this is realy value for your money this is one of the best amps you get for your money very very musical very fast and sparkling treble when you have a good match with your speakers you have realy holographic sound stage realy 3d !! wow ! the only importend thing is to match it with the right speakers!!
Summary: I bought the Caspian integrated Amp M-1 in 2005 for 1400 Euro. The sound quality was great considering it's size. For about 1.5 years it played fine but suddenly there was no more sound coming out of the left speaker. Since I was well within the warranty I took the amp back to the store where it was sent to B&T HiFivertrieb (which is Roksans importer in Germany). After 4 weeks I had it back.
Summary: This is for the Caspian Integrated(Original Model) A very good all round amplifier.Has a particularly nice bass quality which is strong and tuneful.Midrange and treble both smooth,with good dynamics and detail too. Will drive low impedences well due to it's massive 50 amp output,which is more than many power amps can deliver.
Summary: This review is for the Roksan Caspian Power Amplifier and not the Integrated Version. My system is composed of the following: Arcam FMJ CD23 cd player (with original factory installed feet removed and replace by 4 size 2 viprapods), Mission 783 speakers (spikes removed), Arcam AVR100 as a preamp, Roksan Caspian Power Amplifier, DH Labs Air Matrix Interconnects w/ Ultimate RCA plugs, DH Labs Q10 speaker cables (internal biwire), and Absolute Power Cords.
Summary: Jeepers creepers, I was the winner on this amp on e-bay for 400. It just seemed good for me at the time. I feel sorry for the guy that sold it to me for that price. I feel that it is the finest thing that I own. This amp brought me into truely HI-FI. I base all my preamps and speakers around this amp. With proper preamp this is as fine of quality and sonic discourse that can be had. I have a new Rotel preamp coming for my two channel syst.
Summary: Hit the ground running, sensationally natural and musical, hummable and tuneful without any damping dawn of the frequency extremes. Very believable performance, sound tactile, focused and sharpy etched. Separation, detail, cruising ability all took a notch up. Wormed up about 1 month everyday listeninig. Try it. Very audible not for ordinary music AVR fans. All the best!
Summary: The best budget allrounder out there. excellent sweetness and an overall very good sound. it doesnt have any weeknesses. you can find amps that sound better in any way. but at this price, nothing beats it!
Summary: No expert here. I still use my plain old & fine Marantz CD63 as the CD source. Only recently upgraded from the NAD. I tried both the X-A2 ($600 demo) & the Roksan Caspian integrated. I liked the X-A2. Great detail & amazing power. Hard to reject it after playing a Cake CD. Still, it didn't do other artists & genre's as well in my system. It was like a much better version of the NAD.
Summary: I auditioned the Caspian against the Arcam A85 and the Musical Fidelity A3. I found the Arcam a little laid back for my taste whilst the MF was too brash. The Caspian has the good points of both with none of the bad. It is wonderfully smooth with a crisp, but not in any way harsh, treble. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the sound other than thrash metal merchants!
