Roksan Audio’s K3 range of hifi electronics has been a resounding success since its introduction in 2014. Consisting of a high-specification integrated amplifier, CD player and a new CD/DAC; Roksan are now introducing their much anticipated stand-alone Digital-Analogue Converter (DAC).

The K3 DAC was first teased at Munich High End in 2014, and since that point extensive development has forged it into a “superb sounding audiophile device” that meets the highest specification possible, while maintaining a user-friendly interface. In that way it perfectly matches the K3 Series’ mantra: Style. Performance. Function. K3DAC_20160201_8510

At its heart is a DSD1794A DAC chip from Texas Instruments. This chip handles both PCM (up to 24-bit / 192kHz) and DSD (up to DSD 128) data streams utilising the advanced DAC architecture to secure excellent dynamic performance and improved tolerance to clock jitter. This allows for a consistent high performance across the myriad of input options at your disposal, including 1 x AES3/SPDIF (XLR), 1 x Optical, 1 x Coaxial RCA and 2 x USB (Type B). K3DAC_20160201_8511

The K3 DAC is also the first product to use Roksan Audio’s new wireless technology, K-LINK. K-LINK allows for uninterrupted CD-quality wireless streaming from a digital or analogue transmitter at up to 150m range (150m range is only when the dongle and receiver are in a clear line-of-sight. In a typical household, 30m+ is a more expected range).

The K3 DAC is supplied with a digital USB dongle for wireless streaming from a Laptop or computer with support for Mac and Windows, while the optional analogue transmitter allows for wireless streaming from a traditional Line-level hifi source. The analogue transmitter is available separately for £125.00.

The K3 DAC is available in the same three finishes as other K3 Series products; Anthracite, Charcoal and Opium. Control over inputs can be achieved via the front panel or through the supplied R7 System Remote, which also works with the K3 CD players and K3 Integrated Amplifier.

SRP £1,250.00

The K3 DAC is available in the UK now.
