The Roksan Radius 5 Turntable - The Roksan Radius 5 borrows elements and technology from Roksan's world class record players to combine innovation and practicality in this stunning piece of design.
The Roksan Radius Radius 5's drive mechanism utilises a custom made synchronous motor fitted with a precision machined solid aluminium alloy pulley. The main bearing housing and spindle are designed and high precision machined from solid brass and stainless steel alloy to ensure smooth running and longevity.
The single piece solid acrylic platter is precision machined to ensure speed stability and then frost finished for smart aesthetic appearance. The main bearing, platter and Nima arm are mounted on the sub-plinth and three point de-coupled from the main plinth. The motor assembly, also mounted to the main plinth, is further de-coupled to avoid motor noise and vibration break through. The sub-plinth thus isolates the cartridge/record interface and preserves detail, timing and dynamics.
Three chromed adjustable spiked feet assist levelling and optimum coupling to the surface upon which the Radius 5 rests. Matched to the NIMA arm the Radius 5 provides unparalleled performance demonstrating a perfect balance between design, technology and value. Its superior resolution and composure extracts plenty of detail in a well organised, crisp and informative manner.
The performance of the Roksan Radius 5 is in no small part attributable to the excellent Nima Unipivot tonearm. The Nima has a brilliantly natural, cohesive sound reproduction and in conjunction with the Radius 5 and a good cartridge produces a vast panoramic sound with plenty of clarity and punch.
the Roksan Radius comes without a cartridge prefitted. To make life easier we have put together some cartridge options below to help you choose a suitable cartridge for the turntable. Buying with a cartridge enables you to make some savings against the normal prices of these items purchased separately.
