The new Roksan Attessa Series, developed and engineered in the U.K., is a comprehensive range that consists of a streaming amplifier with BluOS technology, an integrated amplifier, a turntable with proprietary tone arm, and CD transport. The Series will be available in mid-late October 2021.
Attessa Streaming Amplifier
With the BluOS multi-room streaming platform integrated, the Attessa Streaming Amplifier is compatible with every one of the world’s leading streaming services. It’s able to stream wirelessly to other BluOS equipment in up to 64 zones.
It has a wealth of digital inputs (all capable of handling high-resolution digital audio), analog inputs including a phono stage, and aptX Bluetooth wireless connectivity. And with audio performance guaranteed by the latest implementation of Roksan’s amplification circuitry, up to 130 watts of power is available.
Attessa Integrated Amplifier
The Attessa Integrated Amplifier goes without the streaming functionality of the streaming amplifier, but in every other respect is just as as usable. It, too, has a selection of digital and analog inputs, a high-resolution, high-performance Burr Brown 24-bit/192 kHz DAC, aptX Bluetooth connectivity, and the same amount of power.
Attessa CD Transport
The CD Transport does exactly what you’d expect — connects via a digital cable to either Attessa amplifier and transmits the audio information from the disc to the DAC on board the amplifier. Using the MaestroUnite app means an Attessa amplifier and Attessa CD Transport combine into a single system after set up, and the custom firmware on board the disc transport ensures accurate playback.
The turntable comes complete with a proprietary unipivot tonearm, a built-in switchable phono stage (which makes it compatible with any amplifier or powered loudspeakers) and comes with the high-performance Roksan Dana Cartridge.
The platter is high-mass, weighted glass with a bonded aluminum edge dampener. The chassis design, complete with feet that isolate the turntable from external vibration, is directly influenced by Xerxes, Roksan’s legendary (and very first) turntable.
