Roksan Attessa CD Transport

Pin It
The beauty of simplicity

Most modern A/V gear is cluttered with tons of buttons, and multiple inputs and outputs. Not so for the sleek, elegant Roksan Attessa CD Transport, which is designed to do one thing very well — it reads the music stored on a compact disc with maximum accuracy and delivers pristine audio playback.

A single coaxial SPDIF output on the back of the component's rugged chassis allows you to connect to an outboard digital to analog converter, or use the DAC built into a compatible receiver, preamp, or integrated amplifier. It's an especially great match for Roksan's Attessa integrated amps. The intuitive function buttons on the front of the transport are mirrored on the included remote control. 

App-based system synchronization

This player is part of Roksan's high-fidelity line of Attessa components. When you have more than one Attessa device in your sound system, you can connect them together and synchronize control functions with the free MaestroUnite app. For instance, when the CD transport is placed in Standby Plus mode, it will automatically turn on when the rest of your system does.

Roksan's British heritage

Roksan was founded in England in 1985, where the company continues to design and engineer its products. Their first product — the ground-breaking Xerxes turntable — established Roksan's expertise in vinyl playback, but since then the company has turned its attention to hi-fi digital audio and amplification, as well.
