  • 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: 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'm using the Caspian Amp & CD combo as a temporary setup to drive my Sonus Faber Electa speakers while I am looking for a new setup in a much higher price-range (Naim, Proceed, Audio Note). The one thing that keeps drawing my attention is the overall balanced quality of the Caspians. It's very easy to find products that offer more detail, better imaging, more air, more power etc.

  • Summary: Used in conjunction with the Caspian Integrated CD, the sound of this combo surpasses anything else I've auditioned. Good, well controlled bass extension, with well defined mid/upper ranges. Works equally well with dance and guitar based music, which is what I mainly listen to. No trace of harshness as reported in reviews below - however not as detailed as some may like, but extremely listenable all the same. Built like a tank and looks superb.

  • Summary: One of the most balanced integrated amp I've ever listened to. It has a tendency to do soft or vocal musics better than rock. All I can say is that it is very balanced. Perhaps not accurate but musical without any major flaws. The rolled off treble could be because of the Acustik-Lab speakers. It practically killed the Primare A30.1 + CD combo when played with the matching Caspian CD player. I recommend this integrated heartily.

  • Summary: The Caspian Integrated is a wonderful, well built, transparent, Awhh, justplain musical. My only problem is that at times it is a little harsh in the high frequencies, which makes it very un-tubelike.. Cables and speakers will have a big impact on this, but the soundstage and everything else is wondeful ..Great Slamability when required for most speakers. Associated Gear: CD-Micromega Stage 2 Interconnects-Were Kimber PBJ, Now Audioquest-turqoise..

  • Summary: Bought the amplifier after having to wait for 4 months before new stocks came.Built quality is good and the set feels heavy. Trouble starts after 3 months of usage. It produces cracking sound to the left speakers and a loud thud when turning off the power switch. Bought it back to the agent for warranty repairs. A month has gone by and I am still without my set.

  • Summary: The first thing that struck me about the Roksan Caspian CD player was it's good looks. The front plate is entirely chrome whilst the rest of the box is in elegant black. I just had to hear this box perform, and perform it did. The sound that the Caspian delivered was sweet, controlled, and very, very nice to listen to. It delivered the goods on all types of music I like and although a little more of a raw edge would be nice on some tracks this was a dream.

  • Summary: CD to solidna i ciężka konstrukcja(10 kg). Przód to grube aluminum.Wewnątrz uwagę przyciąga sekcja zasilania. Dwa transformatory toroidalne osobno zasilają sekcję cyfrową, analogową i napęd. Zalety są ewidentne i to słychać. Napęd działa szybko, precyzyjnie i całkiem cicho. CD odtwarza CDRy tak jak oryginały, bez najmniejszych problemów. Minimalistyczny wyświetlacz jest czytelny, wyraźny i nie razi w ciemności.
  • Pros: analogowy dźwięk, wykonanie i brzmienie
  • Cons: brak otwierania szuflady z pilota :-)
