Roksan Audio have released a limited special edition version of their Radius 7 turntable. ‘The Pink’ turntable not only offers a new cosmetic change for audiophiles, but with every piece sold Roksan will also make a charitable donation to one of the UK’s leading breast cancer support charities, Breast Cancer Care.
Breast Cancer Care was founded in 1973 to support those diagnosed with breast cancer, and their families. The charity uses their resources to provide practical and emotional support, bring people affected by breast cancer together, campaign for improvement in standards of support and care and to help promote the importance of early detection.
The Pink differs from the standard Radius 7 principally thanks to the pink tint in the glass-effect plinth. However, it’s not just the turntable which has changed – The Pink also employs a special finish to the Nima tonearm, where the arm tube has its own subtle pink shading. Aside from these cosmetic enhancements, in all other ways The Pink offers the same performance as the original Radius 7. The Radius 7 employs a dual-layer Perspex plinth construction to effectively decouple the turntable’s core components from each other. The newest Radius also boasts an improved drive motor for control over the rotational force of the platter, as well as the convenience of pushing a button to switch between 33 and 45rpm. Elsewhere the turntable benefits from an acrylic platter, silicone drive belt, premium bearing system and is supplied as standard with a Nima uni-pivot tonearm. The Pink takes the Radius 7 and gives it a brand new look, while also doing something good for a great cause.
The Pink is available in the UK now.
