Today at their company headquarters in London, England, Roksan announced the immediate availability of their new vinyl electronics products in the Caspian M range – the VSC & VSC S2 Caspian_vinyl_electronicsVinyl System Control, the RPM Reference Speed Control and the RPP Reference Phono Stage.

“After rigorous research and development and hours of intense listening we believe we have designed our finest ever vinyl electronics range of products. Any of these new components, when partnered with the renowned Xerxes 20 Plus turntable, offer the finest and most involv- ing vinyl replay system available, regardless of cost” – Tufan Hashemi, Managing Director and Founder of Roksan Audio.

RPP PhonoStage

This new phono preamp is the best sounding and most versatile phono stage Roksan has ever produced. The aim of the RPP was to further develop the sonic achievements of the renowned previous Roksan Reference Phono Stage. The highest possible quality components are used throughout the circuit to ensure the ultimate sound quality. The result is a highly detailed and insightful performance, which possesses bass weight and involv- ing rhythmic speed along with upper frequency sweetness and a wide, deep soundstage. Designed to match the current Caspian M series, it fits perfectly, both sonically and aesthetically, into any current Roksan high-end system. HIGHLIGHTS:

Compatible with both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridge designs.

Three switchable gain level settings.

Top-level audiophile grade components used throughout.

Features dedicated DS1.5 power supply module to feed a smooth, high-quality DC signal to the phono amplifier module.

High quality Caspian M Series chassis and front plate design.

RPM Reference Speed Control

The RPM is the new high-specification, ultra-accurate statement speed control for use with the Xerxes 20+. Consist- ing of an entirely new and highly advanced digital speed control PCB and audiophile-grade components, The RPM represents a significant upgrade from the previous and long-established reference speed control as featured in the discontinued  DX2.

Featuring a very high quality crystal speed control system, it maintains pitch perfect speed stability for both 33/45rpm. One new feature of the RPM is its ability – thanks to the new advanced digital speed control PCB – to either increase or decrease the speed (up to 6.25% either way). This is a very useful addition for customers in areas or countries with unstable or poor currency voltage to attain the exact, correct speed.

HIGHLIGHTS 

All-new, highly advanced digital speed control PCB. Pitch-perfect accurate speed stability.

33 or 45 rpm speed selection.

Adjustable speed control in micro-increments up to 6.25% either way. High quality Caspian M Series chassis and front plate design.

SPECIFICATIONS:

Output voltage (33rpm) 16Vrms

Output voltage (45 rpm) 16Vrms

Phase   0 and 90 deg

DC offset  <10mV

THD + N <0.1%

Output impedance <0.1 Ohms

Roksan UK Retail Price £1,450

VSC & VSC S2 VINYL SYSTEM CONTROL

Like the previous DX2, the VSC and VSC S2 units combine both the RPM and RPP into one Caspian M chassis. There are two options available:

The VSC uses one DS1.5 power supply module to power both the RPP and RPM sections, whereas the VSC S2 utilis- es one dedicated power supply for each section.

For further flexibility another power supply can be fitted so that a VSC can be upgraded at any time after purchase to the VSC S2 specification.

HIGHLIGHTS

Ultimate control and convenience: RPP phono preamplifier and RPM speed control in one unit. Available in two versions: choice of either one or two internal DS1.5 power supply modules.

High quality Caspian M Series chassis and front plate design.

ROKSAN VSC UK RETAIL PRICE £3,000* ROKSAN VSC S2 UK RETAIL PRICE £3,250*

*To upgrade from VSC to VSC S2 at any stage after purchase: £400
