Roksan Radius


The Roksan Radius is a manual turntable with electronically switched speeds.

The deck was available with or without the Roksan Tabriz tonearm fitted.

The basic design features a split plinth with the electronics and rubber mounted motor on the bottom plinth, and the main bearing, platter and tonearm fitted to the upper portion which rests on 3 rubber shock absorbers.

Speed control is electronic, fed from an external walwart power supply on the first model, upgradeable to the high quality DS-U universal power supply.

Rumble: -79dB

Dimensions: 450 x 355 x 128

What makes the Radius successful is the artful balancing act it performs. While it's not so explicit as the Xerxes, it is, nonetheless, a revealing and involving deck to listen to. Happily, it's bandwidth isn't obviously limited and the player always sounds complete and controlled, but not at the expense of excitement - £400 (£550 with Tabriz tonearm) High Fidelity 1991

Truly modern turntable in appearance. The design is subtle, refined and easy on the eye. Musically it offers exceptional performance with a minimum of setting up and operational fuss - £635 HiFi Choice 1992
