This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (Subject to availability. Only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it... IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

Whether you spin discs or stream, the Roksan K3 DAC is the ideal upgrade for your digital music - right up to High Resolution.

High resolution sound to make the most of your streamed music

With the ability to handle a wide range of file types, the K3 DAC makes the perfect accompaniment to your High Resolution music collection and streaming services. Use the USB sockets and the K3 is compatible with PCM resolution right up to 24-bit/192kHz and DSD128.

Twin USB computer inputs
With a USB Type-B socket on the front as well as the rear, it's easy to connect up your PC or laptop either full or part-time. Connecting via USB not only gives you access to the highest quality file compatibility but also asynchronous control. This makes the ideal connection for hooking up your computer, as it will effectively 'control' the PC's output for the best sound quality possible. This greatly reduces jitter and gives the lowest distortion possible from your computer audio.

Superior sound quality
At the heart of the Roksan K3 DAC is the Texas Instruments DSD1794A 24 bit/192kHz DAC. This gives superb resolution without sacrificing refinement; bringing music to life without it becoming overbearing.

XLR Balanced inputs and outputs for a professional connection
As well as the regular optical and coaxial digital inputs, the K3 CD DAC also features a balanced AES/EBU input via XLR. This truly professional grade output matches up with other similarly equipped CD transports and streamers for absolute sonic accuracy. In addition to this, the K3 DAC also features XLR balanced outputs plus two pairs of regular RCA phono outputs.

Superior build quality
A great step up in terms of both style and quality, the Roksan K3 DAC is a sophisticated device. Using a substantial and rigid chassis, the K3 DAC weighs in at 7KG - pretty heavy for a DAC! It's this mass that provides excellent damping against mechanical vibration - reducing the chances of distortion still further. Roksan have also used the highest quality components internally, resulting in a fuller, smoother balance with an 'analogue' vibe to the sound.

Take your digital music to the next level, with the Roksan K3 DAC.

Available in most of our stores but please check before making a special journey. Please call to book a demonstration.

ROKSAN K3 DAC is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renewed my sound Having had my current system for over 20 years. It comprises Musical fidelity CD, Pre, 2 x Power amps, monitor audio 20 SE. I had become used to the sound. Installing this new DAC really changed and opened up the sound, better more outstanding base and finer sweet treble. I now feed my existing CD player through the DAC and also ripped all my CDs using highest level and play my music from my Apple iMac. It was easy to install and set up. I had excellent help and guidance from Dan at Richer Sounds Reading.
