Hello,
I would like to have some advise regarding a combination of the Roksan M2 2 Integrated Amplifier with two Monitor Audio GX 300 speakers. Does the amplificator (85 W) is enouph to power the speakers (Recommended Amplifier Requirements (W): 100 - 200)
Does the new power amplifier from Roksan (from the same serie m2 Caspian) will help to improve significantly the whole system ?
Thanks in advances for your advice.

I Forgot to put the specification of the 2 items:

Hi Ericz

The M2 amplifier has got sufficient quantity (unless you're after constant disco like levels) and quality of power to be partnered with gold GX300's :) Adding the matching power amp and bi-amping the Gold GX300's will only take the performance to an even higher level.

All the best

Hello!

I´ve demoed the Roksan Caspian M2 with Monitor Audio GX300 in a distributor in the north of Portugal. I also heard the Primare I32 with the same speakers.

I really liked the sound of the roksan and I think it can play the GX300, anyway, everybody says that a little more power would be better.

The diference between the Roksan and the Primare was that the Roksan had a warmer sound, the Primare had a more "raw" sound. The primare has 120w at 8 ohms but they sounded more or less the same power to me.

For rock music I prefered the Roksan sound... In terms of sound besides, the dealer was always mentioning the advantages of the Primare, I left the demo with the feeling that I prefered the Roksan sound. Maybe because I already have a "Raw sound Myself.

But you should listen yourself... Never buy without listening It with your music...

I can't believe that an M2 integrated on its own would be a good long term bet with the MAs.

ThE Amp would be at its limits, or else the speakers really won't be seen at their best. Maybe bi-amped with a power amp, not sure id bother even demoing without it.
