”A well-equipped and superb-sounding premium amplifier.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

Monster power

At the heart of this do-it-all amplifier is a supremely powerful amplifier that will power just about any speaker to high levels in even the largest living spaces. An oversized toroidal transformer and large heatsinks help provide this amp with a storming 150 watts per channel - that's over twice the amount a typical stereo amplifier produces.

Roksan quality
Roksan amps have a long tradition of being highly respected for their involving sound quality and the Blak is no different. A dual-mono design means that the left and right stages each have their own dedicated components, helping ensure a broad, accurate sound that's perfectly balanced. Another feature that considerably helps the sound quality is the DAC and pre-amp mounted on the rear panel, keeping the signal path as short as possible for the lowest levels of distortion.

USB DAC
As an amp for the modern age, the Blak features a built-in USB DAC. This top quality Burr Brown device handles digital signals up to 24 bit/192kHz and DSD128. Link up your PC or laptop via the Type-B USB socket and you'll enjoy high-resolution playback from your stored and streaming music at the highest quality - without the need for a separate DAC.

Dedicated headphone output
With many amps, a headphone socket is simply a tick-list fulfilment and not of particularly decent quality. The Blak's headphone socket, however, is a dedicated design in its own right and as good as some standalone headphone amps. Featuring an independent power supply, listening to headphones is every bit as impressive as speakers. The same power, dynamics and finesse are just as clear to hear via headphones as they are with speakers.

Bluetooth apt-X
Thanks to a top quality built-in Bluetooth receiver, the Roksan Blak makes the most of your digital music. Simply pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or compatible PC and you can wirelessly stream all your stored music, plus music services such as last.fm and Spotify. What's more, because the Roksan uses the top quality apt-X coding, it's possible to enjoy high-resolution audio files at the highest wire-free quality.

Comprehensive connections including balanced XLR
For more traditional sources, the Blak features three line level inputs. In addition there's also a MM (Moving Magnet) phono stage for your turntable. For the highest quality connection, balanced XLR sockets provide the best link to the matching Blak CD player or other source with XLR outputs.

Stylish, user friendly design
A clear display makes it easy to keep a track of your input source. Equally, the volume control features a clear level indication - visible even when you're sitting some distance away. The display is dimmable, so won't distract in lower light levels. The build quality is top notch with a thick metal front panel and solid casing for long-lasting appeal.

Designed to combine all the features you could want with audiophile sound quality, the Roksan Blak is a truly no-compromise amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Stunning For the last 35 years, I have always considered I had very good hi fi systems, Audiolab, Arcam, NAD, Thorens, Rega, Tannoy, Roksan. Whilst happy with components at any given time, I was always on the lookout for that missing X factor. The search is now over. I decided recently to replace my Roksan Kandy K2 (as excellent an amplifier as it is) with its bigger brother, the Blak. The Caspian was not in the running as it doesn’t have a phono stage. The clarity that the Blak brings to the system, the breadth of soundstage and the depth have all exceeded my hopes and expectations. It is a phenomenon, no question. Richer Sounds service, also beyond reproach. I ordered over the phone through the Glasgow branch, it arrived within 48 hours by DPD. Easy to set up. The phono stage, servicing my Rega RP3 is the best I have ever heard. Audiolab 8200 CD player has never sounded so good. The Bluetooth facility is a nice add on, very good reproduction, just an edge off the CD line. A very pretty remote control. Yes, it is not cheap, but for me, worth every penny. It is worth trying for a home demo if you can. It is worth a blind faith purchase. Go for it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what heaven sounds like!! I have had this amp nearly a month now and the sound is amazing. I have it paired with the MA gold 300s and they compliment each other well. I will also look to complete the set by adding the Roksan blak CD player.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed so far. Very happy with this purchase from the team at Reading. Sound quality is superb with much more detail, bass control and open soundstage than my previous amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sounding and great looking Amp I bought this Amp about 3 weeks ago, after making the decision to upgrade from my Denon DM41 to separates. I have had to read so many reviews and I also managed to get a demo at the Kingston branch and compared it to other make and models. The demo itself was highly conclusive, but the real test came when I started using it at home in my small living room. The first thing I listened to, was the greatest hits of Pink Floyd and the Depeche Mode Violator, it really blew me away as the sound was something else and since then I have been listening to other genres of music which I never did. Also bear in mind you need a decent pair of speakers to get the best out of this amp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buyer’s remorse GONE! After much deliberation - finally quelled the voice of the bank manager in my head and opted for the Roksan Blak amp. I’m so glad I did. Excellent sound staging, powerful but controlled and I’m particularly impressed by the built in phono stage. It will be a long time before I even think about upgrading! Next stop - new speakers! Can’t recommend highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roxsan Black Amplifier Bought this 2 weeks ago to compliment my Roksan Black cd player. Still running in but so far a very smooth detailed sound through Monitor Audio Gold 60s with transparent interconnects and cable. Very detailed sound stage. Advice and help from Daniel was up to the usual highly impressive standard that I have come to expect from the Kingston crew. Highly recommend the Black combination if you can afford it! N Booker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from World of Roksan This is my first venture into the world of Roksan products. I had read a number of stellar reviews of the Blak Amplifier and finally got to hear it paired with Monitor Audio Silver 500 speakers and REL T5i sub bass. I almost forgot to mention the Blak CD player. The sound of this set up is truly startling. There is a true 3D sound that emanates and the strangest thing is that there is this analogue sound instead of the clinical sound that amplifiers of this calibre can deliver. The USB/Bluetooth features along with streaming are superb. It is clear, consistent and colourful. So if you're big fan of downloading your music via other channels then this will be a redeeming feature. On the other hand, if you like to play CD's the amplifier as I've mentioned will deliver an musical experience like no other at this price. Enjoy!
