Roksan K3 CD Di Player Ex Display
The K3 CD Di joins the K3 range as a combination CD Player and Digital-Analogue Converter (DAC), opening up a K3 system to more music sources than ever before.
The idea behind the CD Di is to provide audio enthusiasts with a high-quality digital source that will not only play an existing CD library to the expected audiophile standard, but will also host an array of other digital sources as one audiophile ‘hub’. By incorporating both the CD player and the DAC into one box, users can both save space by avoiding the need for extra boxes and guarantee consistent audio performance across all digital platforms.
The CD section of the CD Di is based on the established K3 CD. Incorporating premium components and first-class circuit design, the K3 CD Di delivers the same almost analogue sound quality when playing music from a CD.
The DAC section of the CD Di features both optical and coaxial digital inputs that are capable of handling data streams up to 24-bit/192kHz, so a variety of alternative digital players can also be connected to it. By utilising these inputs, other digital sources can benefit from the highly coveted sound quality and the superlative signal-handling that Roksan electronics are renowned for. The digital inputs are selectable via the use of a three position rocker switch underneath the unit.
Aesthetically the CD Di perfectly matches the rest of the K3 series, except for the inclusion of a bi-coloured LED that sits underneath the front plate. The LED illuminates to highlight which digital source the unit is currently set to (Coaxial = White LED, Optical = Blue LED). This adds an extra element to the product that is both striking and appealing.
Usability is effortlessly simple with the supplied system remote, and the usual array of CD Playback modes (shuffle, repeat etc.) can all be accessed easily from the comfort of your listening position.
The K3 CD Di brings all your digital music into one place, delivering one consistent, highly-regarded sound performance to your hi-fi system.

Once again thanks for your help. I first visited Bartletts in 1993 and bought the Audiolab 8000a to equalise and compete with whatever the neighbours were playing at the time through the very thin walls of a Victorian Mansion Block. My Quad at the time although could musically could not compete. I had bought the Quad in 1984 at a place in Camden by Mornington Crescent, although I felt that I bought what" that particular shop "wanted to sell me rather than what I wanted.
I would just like to thank the Bartlett's team for pulling out all the stops when an order failed to materialise through no fault of their own. Terrific service and would certainly shop with Bartlett's again.
If I could give Bartlett's 10 stars I would....Quite superb service (a special mention for Simon here) - Buy from this supplier with complete confidence.
