“Loveable, great-value monster integrated amp.” ‘Hi-Fi Choice – Recommended’. 5-star review. Tested at £2750.
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 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.
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.
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.
Offering the ultimate sound from CD, the Roksan Blak CD gets closer to the music than ever.
The finest sound quality
Although streaming music is now the most popular way of listening to music, a top quality CD player can demonstrate just what you’re missing out on. Listen to your favourite piece of music on the Blak CD and you’ll simply hear more of it. The Blak is so precise that you can now hear individually plucked strings, the breath of a singer between notes and even subtle noises in the studio. Thanks to the top quality components used it also offers a powerful, dynamic sound that makes streaming services and even lesser CD players sound compressed and ‘shut-in’ by comparison.
High quality construction
The main reason for the Caspian Blak's class-leading sound quality is the painstaking attention to detail shown in design and construction. Highlights include an anti-resonant chassis and fully isolated transport mechanism that prevent vibrations from being transmitted to the delicate laser transport. A super-precision master clock ensures the lowest levels of jitter, giving a pure and natural sound that’s free from the ‘digital harshness’ than can afflict some digital players.
Balanced connections for a studio quality link
As well as standard RCA phono analogue and optical/coaxial digital outputs, the Blak CD player also features professional quality XLR analogue and digital outputs. Balanced XLR connections offer a superior connection that resists interference, meaning even lower levels of distortion – especially over longer connections.

Designed without compromise, the Roksan Blak is second only to a live performance.
” The Dali Rubicon 2s are quite the standmounter. They’re an expressive and enthusiastic listen with little to fault. If you hadn’t guessed, we’re big fans.” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review. Tested at £1600.
High quality drive units for reduced distortion
At the heart of the Rubicon 2’s you’ll find an SMC (Soft Magnetic Compound) magnet system. This highly specialised feature is designed to provide the most accurate speaker control and ultra-low levels of distortion. Featuring low-loss, wood fibre woofers that are based on Dali's reference grade Epicon speakers and a soft dome tweeter, the Rubicon 2 delivers a sound so accurate that it can be truly classed as ‘reference’ grade.
Cabinets made to the highest standards
The solid cabinets have been designed for low levels of resonance, giving low distortion and helping to promote a natural sound. Finished in a wide range of high quality designs, such as High Gloss Black or walnut veneer, there’s a look to suit your decor.
Compact and versatile
Ideal for small to medium-sized rooms, Dali has designed the Rubicon 2 to be as flexible as possible. Compact enough to be mounted on a desk or shelf (with, ideally, a minimum of 20cm of space behind) but also at their best when mounted on suitable stands and given plenty of space to ‘breathe’, the Rubicon 2s always impress.
Compact and unobtrusive yet also one of the most musical speakers at its price, the Dali Rubicon 2 has the power to impress.
To get the best from these premium speakers, we recommend speaker cables from premium suppliers Audioquest, Atlas, Chord and QED. Custom made lengths and terminations are also available. Please ask in store for advice.
