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: 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: 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: 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!
Summary: Do not buy this amp if u like heavy metal, rocks & technos. However, if u mainly listen to Jazz, vocals & accoustic musics like me, then the Roksan's approach should serve u well. I'll recommend partnering it with slightly bright (doesn't mean harsh) sounding source and smooth sounding speaker, I get better results from such combination.
Summary: I USE THIS AMP WITH THE ROKSAN CD AND THEY ARE WONDERFUL TOGETHER I GET A LOT OF PLEASURE LISTENING TO MY CD COLLECTION SINCE THIS UPGRADE USED WITH THE VANDERSTEEN 2C SIGNATURE EXCELLENT COMBINATION
Summary: The Roksan Caspian integrated amplifier is an astoundingly musical component.From the beginning,it has shown an amazing ability to play tunes and melodies.It is silky smooth yet articulate and controlled.It has a very broad and deep soundstage but it is presented in such a way as to seem natural and proportioned.The ambience and acoustics of the recording venue as well as the decay of notes is very good esp.
Summary: I have owned the Roksan for over 6 months now and I agree with most of what's been written about it in particular its built quality which I feel is second-to-none. If there's a quality that I really like about the Roksan, it's the neutrality and balance that's free from distortion especially when driven REALLY loud. I listen mainly to pop and classical music but the 3D imaging and soundstaging is one of the best I've heard for AV-audio on two speakers.
