Radius 7 - new radius from Roksan

Written by




Roksan upgrading their turntable Radius 5.2. Roksan 7 emerges as a different player.



Roksan is really in vinyl-mood these days. If we disregard the new DAC and power amplifier in the K3 series, there has been many vinyl news from this part of England lately. Last summer the new tone arm PUG was launched, and a short time ago a completely new turntable in Oxygene series popped up - the Oxygene 30.

Now Roksan launch Radius 7, and it will replace its predecessor. It had the name 5, which later bekame 5.2 in a MK2 edition. It is tempting to assume that the latter circumstance is the background for jumping directly to the model designation Radius 7 this time around.

The main ingredient in the design is retained from Radius 5.2, but new materials contribute to the glassy appearance. The motor is derived from technology used in Xerxes. Roksan opens up for letting owners of Roksan 5.2 upgrade their players to the specifications of Roksan 7.

We do not know the price in Norway yet, but there is every reason to assume that Roksan 7 will take a solid leap up in price compared to predecessors. And an extra large nowadays due to the fact that there is a 20% discount on Radius 5.2.
