Roksan K3 is back on its A-game with the K3, which is nothing short of a superb amp for the price. For a fun, lively amp that can’t fail to keep you entertained, the Roksan K3 is one to consider.
The Roksan K3 is an integrated amplifier designed for those looking to keep with their Hi-Fi roots while keeping one foot in the modern digital audio age. The multitude of internal improvements along with the inclusion of Bluetooth helps to update and improve an already excellent winning formula. If you’re looking to get yourself an amplifier for your Hi-Fi setup this amplifier is definitely one that you should audition.
All round, I think this is an excellent, very powerful, performer for the money. It does slip into the over £1,000 category these days so caparison with previous rivals is unfair. I am starting to believe, having had a sneaky listen to the K3 DAC, that amplifiers should amplify, DACs should DAC, streamers should stream, ‘phono’ stages should ‘Phono’ and Headphone Amplifiers should do their own thing. Of course this conclusion is all about quality and money but if you are after an integrated amplifier starter this Roksan K3 Integrated Amplifier is an extremely good place to start. Its standout feature being the power and detail delivered from high quality line level sources.
