"In our opinion the finest CD player available at anywhere near this price." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. Best CD Player £1500+ 2014 and 5-star award-winner.


Exceptional sound quality

If it's the very best in CD sound quality you're after then you've come to the right place. With a sack load of awards under its belt, the Roksan Caspian M2 is simply one of the finest sounding CD players under £2000. Typically from Roksan, the Caspian M2 puts resolution and dynamic scale as top priorities. Every nuance of musical detail is clearly articulated in a way you may never have heard from hi-fi before. There's also an effortless power that can drive the strongest of rhythms for a totally absorbing performance.

Audiophile-grade construction
The main reason for the Caspian M2's class-leading sound quality is the painstaking attention to detail shown in design and construction. Highlights include a decoupled, isolated laser mechanism and super-precision master clock that ensures the laser tracks as accurately as possible, relying less on error correction and more on the actual digital signal. An independent analogue output stage power supply ensures a lack of corruption between the digital and analogue signals. Put together, these make the Caspian M2 one of the most natural and precise-sounding CD players out there.

All the basics covered
While the Caspian M2 CD player doesn't have anything like as many features as some, it does have all the basics covered. So you get basic programming and repeat functions that you'd expect, but don't always get on a high-end CD player. Similarly, there are both optical and coaxial digital outputs as well as the usual RCA analogue phono outputs. These allow for the use of an even better DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) or digital recording device. Please note that Roksan's CR7 remote control is now included with this CD player.

If you want to be totally immersed in the music, then this is the CD player to get; pure and simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as I'd hoped I bought this just over a week ago as an upgrade from my Rega Saturn and it certainly is that. Bass is just as strong but deeper and more tuneful. Everything else is crisper, better defined, powerful and more detailed and basically just sound right. Build quality is also excellent. As for Richer Sounds. Ordered this at 10.30 and it was delivered 23 hours later. Fantastic service. Also Matt from Solihull was very helpful Will not hesitate to use Richer Sounds again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound quality but otherwise disappointing! This was purchased to replace my 13 year old Primare CD31 which had sadly become unreliable. The sound quality from the Roksan is everything it should be at this price and, as that is the most important aspect of a CD player, it makes acceptance of all that is not so good easier. The disappointment started immediately on unboxing it after delivery. I specifically wanted the black version to match all my other equipment and because it is more discreet than silver. Well.... the front and back panels are black.... and the significantly larger top and side panels, which are very visible in my setup, are a bright shiny silver. No pictures I found on the Internet showed this! The build is impressively substantial but it also feels somewhat rough around the edges and some of the labelling appears to be stuck on. The same applies to the distinctive, but very basic, remote control which also appears to have a stuck on plastic label. Overall, this falls well below the standard I would expect for this amount of money. By comparison, a few weeks earlier I purchased a top of the range Pioneer Blu-ray player costing a similar amount. Its construction and finish are superlative, it plays virtually every type of optical disc and, in my opinion its sound quality from CD is a match for the Roksan. Back to the Roksan remote control, the button cell battery compartment cover is partly secured by a single very small short screw that is screwed directly into plastic - I can't see the thread lasting very long. In terms of operation, the words crude and basic come to mind. The on-off rocker type power switch is underneath and even with my relatively thin fingers I have trouble getting between it and the surface the player sits on to operate it. Obviously Roksan also had a problem operating the switch and, as there is no standby facility provided, the advise in their operation manual is that the unit be left on. Very poor! CD playback options are like the rest... very basic. Despite the slightly elaborate looking front panel display that gives the impression of usefulness, there are no programming options except that playback can be started at the beginning of any track. Playback then continues through the remaining tracks until it is stopped or at the end of the CD. It is also possible to skip to the beginning of the previous or next track during playback. And that's it! Would I recommend the Roksan Caspian M2 CD to anyone? Definitely not. I would advise anyone wanting high quality CD playback at this price to go for the aforementioned Pioneer UDP-LX800. It has superb CD sound quality in pure audio mode, but also plays just about every other optical disc in existence including SACD, Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and most variants of DVD, not to mention playback from USB memory and streaming from servers. And the build quality is truly superb! Sorry Roksan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely sound. Replaces an old Naim CD player. The Roksan is a cleaner, clearer, richer (sorry!) sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought this recently together with the M2 amplifier. The sound produced is very engaging and has a full range of sound. Good build quality. Would be nice to be able to open the cd carriage with the handset to avoid touching the machine .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounding CD RicherSounds did a great deal on these for me as I bought amp & cd together. These are high end and it was great to be able to demo for a full week prior to purchasing. With this level of investment that’s so important. I’m very happy with the equipment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound! I was using a Cambridge CXU for CD playback and sought a more detailed top end... so went into the Southampton store to audition some options against my CXU, where we started off with the Audiolab 8300 & Roksan K3 (the K3 was slightly ahead, with both giving significant gains over the CXU), then introduced the Cambridge Audio AZUR 851C which upped the game a bit further; the Roksan Caspian M2 was then hooked up and wow, seemed like a huge step and very much more separation and beautiful top end detail & clarity compared to the others, as well as powerful bass. To my ears was well worth the extra spend - thanks to manager Dan for his expert help & advice during the session (we also had a go with the Roksan BLAK too (great sounding), but the Caspian suited my ears better across the types of rock music I typically listen to, as was better balanced with live recordings). Went back a week later and auditioned some better interconnects too (I was running Chord Cobras) - and the additional improvements available beyond the Cobras (with the same M2 as source) was amazing, bringing a lot more detail & separation, and so a further upgrade took place (to Chord Signatures!)
