Just one warning on the Roksan CD players... I had a K3 CDDi, and it was a lovely player, BUT it was hopeless with any derivation from red book standards. Quite a lot of CDs now go beyond the time limit of the standard and I had problems playing those discs. I did consult the dealer and Roksan, who said it was because unlike most other manufacturers they use their own dedicated CD audio transport which sounds better. Funny that, because I've heard other players sound just as good!thanks for the recommendation. i was looking at the Roksan Blak while in the shop.. that stuff looks like battleship build quality, so i may just give that a go at some point.
On the amplifier side, the K3 amp is more refined than the K2, but loses some of that drive that made the K2 special.
